Carol, I have spoken to parent groups on numerous occasions, from Massachusetts to California, and from Florida to Texas, about our dismal education system. They all sit and nod their heads, as if they know exactly what I am talking about … but not one of these groups ever decided to take the initiative to wrestle local school boards/districts back from the communists who now run them. Not one. I understand the reasons for this: it is because they too were educated in the same system. It is because taking back education will be a tough fight … and no one has the time for a tough fight any more. Oh sure, they have time to complain … but that is as far as it goes.I agree with you that education is a serious problem, but it is not our number one problem. What is? Our number one problem in America is that we are a nation without virtue. There is only one direction for a nation without virtue … and you can see that place as well as I.
M- indeed our Biblical roots have been abdicated-and without them - all other ideals fail--The original reason why I chose to Homeschool-was - that I knew the basics were no longer being taught--when I found out about the true HIStory of this Republic..I did an 'about face' on my own semi liberalism (I was taught in the system ) and have never turned back--My son was accepted to West Point and the AFA-Do you still speak nationally?--and do you ever come to CA--Z has my e-mail -
I don't blame the republicans for this, you can't win when the public isn't interested in what you're selling. There has been a fundamental shift in the American mindset.Now that I think about it, it have shifted long ago and we're just seeing it played out in earnest now.More people are taking than making and they now control the levers, they won't give it back, no nation at this stage has ever done this.Only way I see is for some of the red states to leave the union, cut the parasites off. Don't even know if it's possible or if there is any appetite for it.Only other alternative is the hope that a greek-style economic collapse and years of grinding poverty will burn people to their senses and they turn back.Mind you i 'hope' they come to their senses, it's a slim hope on that front as well.
I agree with Mustang, about virtue and morality being flushed down the commode.Our country needs a total overhaul and with the current administration that's not going to happen it's only going to get worse.The GOP may have the house, but they lack the courage to stand up to the Dems, they aren't innocent either.
I'd say there is no difference between the dems and repubs other than how they present themselves.They're both evil.
