Teeing it up: A Round at the LINKs (History Edition)

Well it’s now three weeks our from what I believe is the most important election in America’s history.  I decided a few months ago to pursue my Masters Degree in American history because I believe it will be one of the key ingredients in the recipe for getting our country back on track.  I was listening to the Glenn Beck radio show on Friday and they were playing a mock game where they asked people four basic questions about America and the election.  Their responses were sad and was the fodder that Beck and his crew used as comic relief for their show.  Everyone had a great time making fun of how ignorant these people were but as I listened I couldn’t help but feel very sorry for them. We have a problem in America with people not knowing our history and it runs deeper than by simply saying our public educational system has failed us.  It’s much more complex than a lack of parent involvement in reviewing what kind of history is being taught to our children.  If you don’t know your nation’s rich history how can you identify and correct the problem when the teachings stray off coarse.  How can you recognize when someone has revised the history in your child’s book.  The answer is you cannot.  And this is my greatest concern.

Our children are not being exposed to the philosophies of John Locke or Montesquieu; philosophies that greatly influenced our founding fathers.  They’re not being introduced to the writings of Thomas Paine or Thomas Jefferson and allowed to critically think about liberty and the role of government.  By the time they finish high school in terms of American History or American Government they don’t have a solid foundation.  They have a better grasp on European History than our own.  When they get to college they are globs of clay in the historical and ideological sense ready to be molded by some pro-Marxist professor who demonizes liberty and promotes tyranny.  And because parents are just as clueless about our history they cannot recognize that their children are being deprived of a great story about America.  Take a few minutes to check out the below video.

This is how it has been playing out for the 50 years and over time it has gotten worse,  If you don’t believe me just look at your child’s social studies book.  Take the time to review what they’re being taught and then do your own homework to see if there is something missing something or if they’re being taught a revised version of our history.  You just might surprised at what you find.  Most of what I’ve learned about American History wasn’t taught to me in school.  Most of what I learned was through my own efforts.  So don’t tell me it can’t be done.   I made the time in my busy schedule to learn about America because I wanted to improve my understanding of it.  What I discovered is that our children are being deprived of a great American story and unless we change this, colleges will continue to churn out little Marxists.  Only when our children are armed with knowledge of our history and have a solid understanding of liberty will they be able to challenge the teachings of college professors promoting Marxism.  I want to be part of the solution to this problem so this is why I have decide to forgo my MBA and go after a Masters in American History.  Yes I could make more money with an MBA.  Yes I would be more promotable with an MBA.  Sometimes though its not about money, it’s about being part of the solution and I choose to be part of the solution.  Now on to the LINKs.

Below are links to outstanding conservative/libertarian articles.  Please take a few moments out of your day to check them out.  When you stop by, hit their tip jars if they have them because these good folks work hard every day to cut through the liberal spin and bring you the truth. So tee it up and enjoy another SENTRY JOURNAL round at the LINKs.

    Excellent points. Schools aren’t teaching history (and certainly not the classics) they are teaching a mishmash called Social Studies.

    Thanks for the link John. They want us to forget our history so we will not oppose their goals, which are at odds with the founding, and it is up to each and every one of us to learn about the past so that we can continue to keep America free. Once the past is forgotten the future can be written on a clean slate.

      That’s exactly right Steve. When people don’t know their own history they forget where they came from and what they were. When that happens it’s easier for a government or groups to rewrite their own version of history. This is how we end up with a majority of people thinking the constitution is a living breathing document. You’re very welcome for the link my friend. Keep up the great work.

    Thanks again for the link. I heard as well Glenn Beck on Friday. I had mixed feelings as well. While disturbing, there is a way to present deficiencies that really are a statement against our educational system. I turned it off as it went over the top as far as I was concerned.

    “Give me Liberty, or Give me Death!” – Patrick Henry

    What a brilliant ruling by the United States Supreme Court on the affordable health care act (Obamacare). Stunningly brilliant in my humble opinion. I could not have ask for a better ruling on a potentially catastrophic healthcare act than We The People Of The United States received from our Supreme Court.

    If the court had upheld the constitutionality of the individual mandate under the commerce clause it would have meant the catastrophic loss of the most precious thing we own. Our individual liberty. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Supreme Court.

    There is no mandate to buy private for-profit health insurance. There is only a nominal tax on income eligible individuals who don’t have health insurance. This is a HUGE! difference. And I suspect that tax may be subject to constitutional challenge as it ripens.

    This is a critically important distinction. Because under the commerce clause individuals would have been compelled to support the most costly, dangerous, unethical, morally repugnant, and defective type of health insurance you can have. For-profit health insurance, and the for-profit proxies called private non-profits and co-ops.

    Equally impressive in the courts ruling was the majorities willingness to throw out the whole law if the court could not find a way to sever the individual mandate under the commerce clause from the rest of the act. Bravo! Supreme Court.

    Thanks to the Supreme Court we now have an opportunity to fix our healthcare crisis the right way. Without the obscene delusion that Washington can get away with forcing Americans to buy a costly, dangerous and highly defective private product (for-profit health insurance).

    During the passage of ACA/Obamacare some politicians said that the ACA was better than nothing. But the truth was that until the Supreme Court fixed it the ACA/Obamacare was worse than nothing at all. It would have meant the catastrophic loss of your precious liberty for the false promise and illusion of healthcare security under the deadly and costly for-profit healthcare system that dominates American healthcare.

    As everyone knows now. The fix for our healthcare crisis is a single payer system (Medicare for all) like the rest of the developed world has. Or a robust Public Option choice available to everyone on day one that can quickly lead to a single payer system.

    Talk of privatizing/profiteering from Medicare or social security is highly corrupt and Crazy! talk. And you should cut the political throats of any politicians giving lip service to such an asinine idea. Medicare should be expanded, not privatized or eliminated.

    We still have a healthcare crisis in America. With hundreds of thousands dieing needlessly every year in America. And a for-profit medical industrial complex that threatens the security and health of the entire world. The ACA/Obamacare will not fix that.

    The for-profit medical industrial complex has already attacked the world with H1N1 killing thousands, and injuring millions. And more attacks are planned for profit, and to feed their greed.

    To all of you who have fought so hard to do the kind and right thing for your fellow human beings at a time of our greatest needs I applaud you. Be proud of your-self.

    God Bless You my fellow human beings. I’m proud to be one of you. You did good.

    See you on the battle field.
