Above the screams of all of the grassroots groups and teachers everywhere, the all-seeing, all-knowing rulers of our land have voted for the ESEA overwhelmingly for the lowly subjects of our land. Repaint the school busses. There is no such thing as a local school district unless this changes. The Federal Education Dept. should be completely abolished. Is there hope? Maybe, but it won’t be easy. The hunger for global control of our education/indoctrination system is voracious, and most Congressmen have become the Stepford wives of the educrats and power brokers. Here are the results:
We must consistently focus on electing state legislators and officials who understand that the States empower the Federal, and not the other way around. Our states should be telling the federal government, “No, thank you” or “Who asked you?” on a whole lot more than marijuana laws.
We the Working People can’t go to D.C. to fight the global corporations and lobbyists that have full access to our “law-makers” who are wined and dined into a stupor and given a false sense of importance from the moment they get there. We can possibly make a difference at a local level however. Get involved in your precinct and county, your cities and your school board. Beware of everything that comes from any national organization.
I know there are a lot of very nice people who go to D.C. with the best of intentions, but the moment they get the “you just don’t understand how this works” attitude toward the people whom they are supposed to represent, they are useless. They have become part of the problem. They won’t even make proposed laws available for people to look at before they pass it. They write reams of gobbledigook so that no sane person could make sense of it. They get offers from donors they don’t refuse, and come up with a lofty-sounding speech to pacify the masses, and then wave off the people whom it affects like we are a nuisance.
When they don’t even understand that their role is to protect the rights of We the People and that their power is extremely limited, they are working against us. They will continue the destruction of the Union of the States and the God-given rights they took an oath to protect. We are currently governed by an oligarchy trying to shove God and a spirit of individual freedom and personal responsibility out.
My goal for the next Resident is that he not be actively trying to kill us all, and with this week’s stupid comments from the Democrats regarding taking OUR guns because crazy/evil people are trying to kill innocent people that leaves them all out of the running. As far as the candidates with an R beside their names… well, I’ve been disappointed too many times to take much stock in them either, but at least it might take us a little longer to go over the cliff. Save your time and money and focus locally to elect state representatives who will fight for you.
Gretchen Logue wrote a wonderful column (read HERE) regarding the ESEA that was passed this week. She included the press release from OK Congressman Jim Bridenstine, who has fought with us here in OK against Common Core from the beginning. Gretchen is the founder of the Missouri Watchdog and has been fighting Common Core and other bad education policies in Missouri.
