Over 50 years ago the communist party claimed they would never take over America by force but through our education system and we would fall from within. I may hurt some feelings here but I believe for the most part the government education system is the major cause of most of our problems. If young people were taught to work hard for their success and not rely on government or community to prop them up we would be better off. I know some people have little or no option except public school but in my ever so humble opinion if you do have kids or grand kids in these schools you had better work overtime to debrief them on a regular basis if you don't want little liberals in your hands.....just saying.
It used to be rugged individuals were looked up to by almost everyone especially our education system, in school we would learn about real heroes, explorers, generals, soldiers, tough men and women who made a difference, kids would play cops and robbers, or practice exploring on weekends on the edge of town, or play fireman or war games. Today this is not tolerated, instead if you can find a plastic gun it is painted orange or lime green, if a kid even draws a picture of a gun in school they can be expelled. They are taught to hold hands around a tree they planted to save the environment and
All this is not new, we have been creating this mess for a long time. This kind of mentality started back in the 60's with the "peace and love" generation, the baby boomers, it spawned the Vietnam protests and environmental activism etc. back then it was a few wackos but now it is mainstream with over 50% having some of these tendency's. This is why I am so opposed to the idea to re-elect Obama so he can drive us off the cliff ( because it's inevitable anyway) and the right wing won't get the blame and we can re-build, fact is there are enough cool-aide drinkers to ensure if this happens that we will become a full blown socialist country and stay that way forever.
No, we need to take a stand here and now and start to turn this ship around or be prepared to man the lifeboats and live on a deserted island for the rest of our lives.......literally
