    Lieutenant Governor Winsome Sears (R-VA) said Sunday that education in the United States is a "national security crisis."

    Appearing on Fox News's "Sunday Morning Futures," Sears told host Maria Bartiromo that declining education standards and critical race theory have caused the U.S. to lag behind its global adversaries. Sears said that she believes public education in America has risen to the level of a national security crisis.

    Bartiromo began the conversation by pointing out that Sears and Governor Glenn Youngkin (R-VA) have prioritized the fight against CRT in schools.

    "I know education to you changes everything as well," Bartiromo said. "This has been a major focus for you, and yet here too, bad policy in terms of CRT and focusing on issues away from strengthening our students to make them best compete with the Chinese, with all adversaries across the world as they get older."

    "I'm glad you stated it that way when you talk about the Chinese, the Russians, etc., because that's what I've elevated our children not learning to," Sears responded. "This is a national security crisis. When so many of our children are not learning, we're in trouble. We need STEM education. Heavens, we need children who can just read and write. How about that? And add one plus one. We don't have that."

    "We are losing to the China's [of the world], to the Russia's, even Estonia is beating us in math," she continued. "In science and technology, we're losing. We need to have education up here now."

    Sears urged voters across the country to push for change and make their voices heard in the 2022 midterms.

    "We're talking about the future of America. When we talk about the future of America, we're talking about our children and grandchildren. Elections, they're about them. It's about hope and the future, and we're not getting there, and we're not getting there very fast."

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
