Did You Vote for a Despot?
In Part I, we discussed how we, the voters, are to blame for the mess of our government. This has been building for about 100 years, but we are now reaching the true danger zone of rapidly collapsing into tyranny.
When Benjamin Franklin left the Constitutional Convention a woman asked him what kind of government the people would have and he replied, “A republic, if you can keep it.” Our Founding Fathers knew full well there would be those who would try to return to a tyrannical government.
Many of our founding Fathers also warned of the need for quality education for all and the teaching of the Bible, for the loss of these would result in ignorant and immoral people acting and voting on selfish motives alone, egged on by great promises of egotistical politicians.
That is exactly what is happening today. Belief in a higher power has been taken out of the schools and the battle has escalated to remove it from the public view. The Ten Commandments have been removed from courthouses around the country. Protests have led to the removal of the nativity scene in public areas, people saying “Happy Holiday” instead of “Merry Christmas” so they don’t offend a few, and kids now sing “Silent Night, Holy Night” at school events without mentioning Jesus.
Preachers are terrified of offending their congregations and so refuse to speak out against the growing immorality of our society, further increasing depraved behavior. Just look at Miley Cyrus’ recent performances with her disgusting gyrations and sexual overtones.
Today’s preachers need to have the backbone like the preachers of the mid-1700s. They were called the Black Robed Regiment by the British and they are actually credited for America’s independence from Britain. For 20 years leading up to the American Revolution, their sermons taught and reminded the people their rights come from God, not some politician or the government. According to John Adams (2nd American President) credited the Black Robed Regiment with the “awakening and a revival of American principles and feelings”, which ultimately led to America’s independence.
As people are intimidated into concealing their religious beliefs, it becomes easier for the despots to intimidate them in other ways, such as speaking out about the appalling standards the U.S. has achieved educationally. American kids are no longer #1 in the world. American students now rank at #36 in math, #28 in science and #24 in reading. Our kids have been so cheated by government and union controlled education system, they are now behind kids in China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Poland, Finland, Holland, Canada and Australia, just to name a few.
If this were not bad enough, the teaching of American and World history, as well as civics, has declined across the nation. Since today’s 20, 30 and 40 year olds do not know the Constitution or Bill of Rights, they are not aware when politicians steal their rights. Lack of education has led to poor voter knowledge and the inability to make intelligent decision in the voting booth.
I don’t know why every single parent in the U.S. is not pulling their children out of the public schools. I spent 20 long years fighting for my children’s education. When they were in public schools, I supplemented what they learned at school with home activities. Whenever I could afford it, they went to private schools, and I still watched everything they were being taught.
I also worked in the public schools for several years and I watched as administrators instructed staff NOT to tell parents what was going on in the school. These same administrators would stand in front of parents at gatherings, kindly inviting them to participate in their children’s education, but the moment there were no parents around, they would complain about parents that tried to be involved and would go to great lengths to discourage parental involvement. It made me sick.
I was honest with parents, much to the school system’s anger. Needless to say, I don’t work there anymore. However, I would rather betray the school system and union than betray a single child.
Schools are no longer for educating our children. Our children are merely a tool to raise taxes and more money for unions and administrators. Every year, politicians promise better education to get your vote and to get union dollars to pay for their elections. Teachers and staff are so intimidated by the unions and administration, most will not speak out. Your child suffers and becomes an ignorant member of society to be controlled for the government good.
So, we have lost our religious morality. We have lost our educational superiority. We are becoming ignorant sheep whose only purpose is to enrich and empower the government. They no longer work for you. YOU WORK FOR THEM.
In Part III, we will discuss examples of political despotism and how you can take control of your life and fight for your children’s futures.
