I'm writing this as the nation votes for the next President of the United States. We've seen the young people following this Pied Piper all over this Nation. There are reports of friends telling friends to ignore their brain and vote their emotion.. Reports are coming in of kids voting for Obama in their schools after reading particular articles given to them by their teachers. How could a Pied Piper come in with hypnotic words lead a whole generation toward a Marxist vision for this Country?
It starts every day when the children of America are sent to Marxist schools. Who do you think composed those 3,200 signatures on the petition defending Bill Ayers? They were teachers, and teachers of teachers known as professors. Their vision of America taught in the public schools (although they long ago stopped being what the public wanted for their children) is a Marists world.
Long ago many schools began pooling the supplies of elementary schools, so that everyone gave into the common supplies for each class. Then when your child needs a Kleenex or a crayon or a pencil, they had to ask the teacher and receive one from the common supplies. We recognize this as teaching socialism; teachers believe it helps self esteem so no one has better supplies than the other.
In the last 20 years, ministries that teach World View to adults and teens in churches had sprung up all over the country. Why? Because the Christian History of this Nation was not being taught in the public schools. The Capitalistic History has not been taught in the public schools. If you ever visit your child's school and sit in on a class (if they still permit this) you will be shocked at what is being taught, what stories are emphasized, and what stories are never mentioned. The teachers have final say in what is actually taught in their classrooms. It's their world view that is spread to all of your children for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week 180 days a year. Do you spend anywhere near that much time with your children teaching them about your world view, your belief system, your view of life?
The wonderful thing about homeschooling is time with your children. You pick the history books your child reads. You can decide if they read a text book that mentions the Constitution or if they actually read the Constitution. You decide if they read about the Gettysburg address, or if they actually read the Gettysburg address. You can decide to take your children to those historic places where many re-enactors make the history of this country come alive and becomes a part of your child's life experience. Your children can be taught the real history of our country.
And we know that an informed public will not follow a Pied Piper.
Teachers know this also, hence the dumbing down of our education for the last 35 years.
