It can be pretty depressing to witness more and more Americans protesting in favor of oppression and against liberty. Yes indeed, increasing numbers of sovereign citizens want the government’s boot-heel on their necks or lash on their backsides. A primary root of this trend can be traced directly to the mega, one-size-fits-all, government school system. For over fifty years, government school educators have been used to fundamentally change America. This has been accomplished by systematically lowering some standards and eliminating others altogether.
American history courses have been degenerated to nothing more than anti-United States of America propaganda dogma. The Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and Federalist Papers are mere mentions without credible or in-depth study. The education system or, more appropriately, the dens of indoctrination are wasting an average of $15 thousand dollars per student in cities like Detroit, where at least a forty percent literacy rate is not uncommon at many schools.
So now, America is lumbering along with at least two generations of students who believe that the communist inspired concept of the common good trumping individual rights or rational self-interest is the way to go. That is why bigoted progressive political Marxists like Hillary Clinton openly state that:
they’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.
Another indication of Americans preferring in this case indirect oppression over liberty, whether self-induced or directly from the government, was a recent episode of Late Night hosted by progressive host Stephen Colbert. His guest that particular Friday night was Ohio governor John Kasich. He is a moderately conservative Republican who has overseen the Buckeye State’s successful economic recovery. He also eliminated the Ohio budgetary deficit and increased economic activity that has fostered a two or three billion dollar surplus.
But the major focus of Colbert’s interest was presenting nagging questions about the voters of Ohio choosing not to approve the legalization of marijuana for medicinal or recreational use. That is indicative of what progressive elitist Democrats and some RINO Republicans want Americans to have. In other words, they would prefer that we light up and not focus on concrete issues like illegal immigration, or higher gasoline taxes coming in 2017 for Michigan residents. The progressives don’t want us to remember that President Obama has not made one concrete decision that would benefit America economically, morally, militarily, constitutionally, environmentally, or educationally.
When one reads the numerous quotes of the Founding Fathers, it is quite apparent that they were concerned about the possibility of the United States evolving from the land of the free and home of the brave into the land of the dominated and home of the cowardly. Neither you nor I can accurately tell how many times we have heard that, according to certain pols, Americans support gun control and gender neutral bathrooms for example. Many other such wedge issues on the progressive agenda are promoting illegal immigration, false allegations of racism, and supposedly hating the poor.
Those wedge issues have a certain prominence because people have been dumbed down to a lower level of thinking politically, morally, and economically. If Americans were properly schooled on the benefits of our Constitution and economics, along with virtue, I seriously doubt that the federal government would be so bloated and working to implode our nation on behalf of the United Nations and Muslims.
Properly informed or schooled Americans would not entertain the foolhardy concept that one is xenophobic because they simply want people to obey our laws and immigrate into the United States legally. Also, perhaps American voters would not have twice elected an individual who literally wants to bring tens of thousands of American hating Muslims into our country to try and change our American culture into a bastion of rights-inhibiting sharia law.
In order to rescue the United States from utter ruin, we must make genuine efforts to teach Christian virtues, real United States history, critical thinking, real math, etc., to the up and coming generations. If not, our beloved republic will simply end up slip, slipping away. Despite the current troubles and travails throughout the land, I am still optimistic that America the beautiful will be truly great again. Our cities will once again be undimmed by human tears. She will, of course, soon reestablish a closer walk with the one who shed His grace upon her and benefit from His Providential guidance.
