Attorney General Eric Holder has stated that Americans have no fundamental right to home educate their children. He also believes that he can circumvent equal protection by totally banning homeschooling because there can be no violation of a right which nobody has.
Just what are Fundamental Rights anyway and what is their source? Fundamental Rights are those rights that belong equally to every human being merely because he was conceived; the Source is God. They are the foundation upon which all else is built and sustained. Therefore, Fundamental Rights are immutable; they supersede and are above the laws made by man. Man can neither give nor take Fundamental Rights from any person. Fundamental Rights are unalienable rights such as those penned in the Declaration of Independence by Thomas Jefferson– Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. In other words, God has given to each living person the right to live, to be free, and to set his own goals and pursue the happiness and satisfaction he desires.
Certainly parents have the right to choose how to care for and educate their own children. Parents are essential to the very survival of their children because human beings are the most helpless of all young and for the longest duration. For example, baby calves, horses and other animals stand up and walk within minutes of birth, and many birds are fully mature within weeks of hatching. Turtles leave their eggs in the nest and never go back, leaving the baby hatchlings to make it on their own. But human babies are totally dependent at birth and greatly dependent for the first 20 years of their lives; they must be taught everything they know. One of the main purposes of parenthood is to teach our children to be independent, productive citizens, husbands, wives, and parents– in other words teaching them NOT to need us for their survival and success.
Liberals say that parents are inadequate and that we do not know how to rear and teach our children. In fact, they say that our children do not belong to us!
Yet notice that the Liberals are so quick to point and blame parents when children go astray (remember how quickly the blame was placed on Adam Lanza’s dead mother)– yet the same Liberals want to take our children from us and give them to the State to feed and “educate,” a/k/a indoctrinate (and alienate against the values and standards of the parents.) Well, the Liberals cannot have it both ways: either parents are important and influential or they are not.
Wake up, America; We the People must stand up and protect our families and preserve our rights. It is essential that We the People hold our legislators personally responsible for representing us correctly and for upholding and defending the Constitution of the United States as per their oath of office.
