Progressive school choice - Progressive vouchers
Mark Loewe devised progressive school choice during the 1980's to attract tens-of-billions of additional private dollars per year into our nationwide K-to-12 education system (billions of additional private dollars per year into Texas' K-to-12 education system), nearly maximize the amount of public education funds available for any child, and empower all parents, especially poor parents and parents of handicapped children, to reject mediocre schools and choose safe schools that better serve the individual needs, abilities, and interests of their children.  State legislatures should pass bills to implement progressive school choice statewide or to enable voters to adopt progressive school choice statewide or in their school districts.  Congress should pass a bill to implement progressive school choice for children in Washington, D. C..

Let children permanently keep low cost mathematics and science textbooks
Mark Loewe has urged parents, teachers, education officials, and legislators since the 1990's to acquire low cost mathematics and science textbooks for American children to keep permanently.  Representative Garnet Coleman (D-Houston) authored bills based on Dr. Loewe's proposal during four sessions of the Texas Legislature.  Dr. Loewe wrote House Bill 2959 during the 81st Regular Session (2009) of the Texas Legislature.  Congress should pass a bill to let children in Washington, D. C., permanently keep low cost mathematics and science textbooks.

In 2012, Mark Loewe endorsed Gary Johnson for President.  Mark Loewe stated, "As Governor of New Mexico (1995-2003), Gary Johnson led efforts to improve K-12 education through school vouchers.  As President, Gary Johnson would support school vouchers in states, territories, and Washington, D. C.."

In 2012, Gary Johnson endorsed Mark Loewe for Member, State Board of Education, District 5.  Gary Johnson stated, "Mark Loewe's progressive voucher and low cost textbook proposals have great fiscal and educational merit.  Progressive vouchers can be used as one way to maximize freedom in school choice and improve American K-12 education.  Be Libertarian with me; vote for Mark Loewe!"

Mark Loewe is grateful to have received the votes of 28,407 Texans in the 6 November 2012 General Election.


Congress can easily avoid and eliminate federal debt on which Congress gives away interest.
Congress gave away $522,767,299,265.34 of interest on our federal debt during fiscal year 2020.  This give-away, of roughly $1,584 per year for each man, woman, and child, or $6,337 per year per four-person family, does immense harm to Americans and enriches creditors, including the Federal Reserve System (bankers), Japan, and Communist China.

Any delay by Congress to issue money to creditors to pay down our federal debt results in the accumulation of more interest, increases the amount of money that Congress must issue to pay off our federal debt, and, thereby, weakens the dollar and worsens long-term inflation.

Congress should pass a bill to direct the U. S. Treasury to issue money to pay for all goods and services that Congress acquires and to pay down our federal debt by at least $3 trillion per year (or $57.495 billion per week).  By passing such a bill, Congress would completely avoid new federal debt on which interest accumulates and would eliminate our current federal debt in less than 10 years.

Congress never needs to incur federal debt on which interest accumulates.  Failure to pass a surplus or balanced budget is no excuse for Congress to incur debt on which interest accumulates.  Members of Congress, including those who vote for deficit budgets, should consider it to be their duty to issue money to pay for all goods and services that Congress acquires instead of to incur federal debt on which interest is given away.

Do not re-elect members of Congress who do nothing to avoid and to eliminate federal debt on which interest is given away.

      Senators ranked by Debt Limit vote record.
      Representatives from Texas ranked by Debt Limit vote record.

States should pass a Constitutional amendment to prohibit Congress from incurring federal debt on which Congress gives away interest.  Such an amendment should be favored over a balanced budget amendment.  Deficit budgets, to acquire goods and services during emergencies and at low cost during economic downturns, may be necessary, can save money, and should not be prohibited.


Do not believe, and do not re-elect, any elected official who claims that a bailout by Congress is needed to fix your state government's money problems.  State government money problems are almost always due to lavish spending, poor planning, and mismanagement by state governments.  Congress should not reward lavish spending, poor planning, and mismanagement by state governments at the expense of all Americans.
