Ron Paul Podcast # 7- On Education
Topic: Stay Away From Our Children
I could spend the time in this podcast talking about the Ron Paul blimp, which will surely make news in the next few days or I could talk about the Boston Tea Party celebration where Paul supporters will raise over 5 million dollars on the 16th and 17th of December. Since Ron Paul has over 75,000 volunteers (more than any other presidential candidate) and since Paul supporters have more blogs and websites than any other candidate, I am sure they will cover these issues in due time.
What I prefer to do is to talk about what Ron Paul believes; because it is what he believes that most intelligent people care about. In these new few minutes I would like to discuss what Ron Paul believes about education.
There is no doubt that the educational system of this great Republic has ruined our children. Forced indoctrination, anti-American propaganda, and the systematic neglect of parental responsibility have led to unprecedented lows in Mathematics, Science, Geography, and furthermore, Christian children who attend public schools are less likely to ever develop a proper worldview
The relentless indoctrination of children in public schools leads to future adults who believe they are entitled to receive everything from the government from cradle to grave. Their work ethic is diminished because they have no sense of personal responsibility. After all, why work if mother government will provide all my needs?
…the federal government has so invaded our classrooms, that daily our children are constantly bombarded with the message that everything good flows from the federal government, and that no one but the federal government has the ability to put right problems in our culture and world. On any given day, the federal government has more influence on the education of the average child than that child’s parents.
Why have parents neglected their God-given responsibility to educate their children? Why have they turned over their precious little ones to the jurisdiction of a Federal Government that has no interest in sharing your religious views? In the end of the day, would a parent prefer to see his children reflect his values or the often socialistic and anti-Christian values of Government Education?
Our Constitution does not authorize our precious tax dollars to fund the education of others. Paul writes:
Even though many people across the nation are tired of what they see the federal government doing in education, there are too many entrenched congressmen, senators and federal employees who are unwilling to eliminate this unconstitutional waste of tax dollars.
This happens precisely because Washington has no interest in defending your cause; rather they are interested in seeing every child leave high school dependent on more government gifts, thus leading to greater national debt and higher taxation. Ron Paul, on the other hand, is the only candidate who defends the rights of homeschooling parents against the tyranny of the Federal Government; the only candidate who wants to abolish the unconstitutional Department of Education, the only candidate who offers solutions for families of low income to put their children in private schools, and the only candidate who believes that our future generation depends on how our children are educated today.
