This blog is about our schools and I will depart just a little today for a very special reason- but I won't depart much. This blog is written today in honor of the greatest document ever written- THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
Recently TIME MAGAZINE wrote an article claiming that times have changed and our CONSTITUTION is maybe not so relevant anymore. Some may think that America is in decline and our best years are behind us- but not so fast- I prefer to believe that America is in a period of renewal. Perhaps this is the time when we all must make the ultimate sacrifice- speak out even if it means your reputation .
Our CONSTITUTION has never been more relevant, and I for one will fight for it to my last dying breath.This is what Calvin Coolidge had to say-
It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776, that we have new
thoughts and new experiences which have given us a great advance over the people of that
day, and that we may therefore very well discard their conclusions for something more modern.
But that reasoning can not be applied to this great charter. If all men are created equal,that is final.
If they are endowed with inalienable rights that is final. If governments derive their just powers
from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond
these propositions. If anyone wishes to deny their truth or their soundness, the only direction
in which he can proceed historically is not forward, but backward toward the time when there
was no equality, no rights of the individual, no rule of the people. Those who wish to proceed
in that direction can not lay claim to progress. They are reactionary. Their ideas are not more
modern, but more ancient, than those of the Revolutionary fathers.
In our schools children are sent to visit one another within the school and without in various BUDDY
PROGRAMS. They are put in pods or at tables so that they never have a moment in independent space. All of these things are done to do away with that "old idea" of the rugged individual. That would be the individual who thought for himself, the individual with inalienable rights that come from God not the government.
Perhaps to some this seems an extreme view, but is undeniably true that "school reform" is about social change. This social change is collectivist, whatever name you want to put on that. OUR CONSTITUTION needs to be taught to every generation if we are to survive as FREE individuals who run the government not the other way around. Parents look around you and put yourself on the line to protect our freedoms from those who would do away with our CONSTITUTION and replace it with a collectivist state. Learn your history. Travel. I have seen collectivist states up close and personal. If we lose our freedom we may never be able to get it back.
