I look forward to the day that we will no longer see photos in the newspaper of Nevadans lining up to contribute money to California’s education system.

I look forward to the day when Wal-Mart, Albertson’s, McDonald’s and the mining corporations pay their fair share for the infrastructure they use in our state. Why are we raising our sales tax to hire more police to protect the property of international corporations when those corporations pay almost nothing?

I look forward to the day when our children can go to schools that aren’t among the worst funded in the nation. I look forward to the year that teachers, who have not had a raise in five years and actually will be getting their second pay cut in that time this July, get their next raise.

I look forward to the day when brave citizens will run for office and stand up to the handful of powerful people who have hoarded more and more of our nation’s wealth while the workers have suffered.
