The Religion of the Liberal Left

Rick's Commentary--

The the past several weeks, while relaxing from our move from Kansas to Oklahoma, I've been participating in several on-line forums, and reading blogs and the comments made to them. I've come to some very disturbing conclusions. Those on the left are totally blinded to the truth of what is happening to our beloved country. They spue hateful comments, while accusing conservatives of being racist and full of hate. And why is this? They have been brainwashed by our educational system.

Education used to be primarily a State and local responsibility in the United States. I remember as a child, our parents attending a local PTA, and a local Board of Education, not unified district meetings. In 1980, Congress established the Department of Education as a Cabinet level agency. The agency incorporated much of the educational components of the 1960s and 1970s, along with more and more control of the states' educations. Today, virtually all aspects of educating our youth are managed by the Department of Education.

I learned from students of our current educational system what they are learning. Some schools--not all, are telling the students that Capitalism is the source of most of our economic problems. One person told me that their teachers told them not to listen to their parents or grandparents, as they are probably conservative, and not a reliable source of information.

What began in the ivy league colleges in the East in the 1600 and 1700s, e.g., liberals infiltration of schools designed to train pastors, has spread to other colleges, to high schools, and now to elementary schools. Our young people are being programmed for a socialist society.

Journalists, social workers, government workers, elected representatives, even some pastors, union leaders, and others in society, were brainwashed by these same professors and teachers into hating our way of life in the United States, to the point of wanting to change to another system. The suggested system is a form of Marxism, i.e., socialism or communism, i.e., take from those that have and distribute it to those that do not have as much.

In conclusion, we have a society, in which citizens in all walks of life believe that all are entitled the same as the rich. It is a belief that is so rooted in the believers that it has become a 'religion,' as deeply founded as any legitimate religion anywhere. That is why they teach the flawed 'separation of church and state,' as they want no competition, especially competition that teaches truth. The left is not open-minded. The left has become vicious in condemning those with whom they do not agree. Without substance, they employ 'ad hominem' tactics against conservatives, Christians, the Tea Party, and others with whom they disagree. Their liberal or progressive beliefs are so strong, they believe those who do not agree as being 'wrong.'

And arguing, discussing issues with them, and trying to arrange a meeting of minds with them, is useless and a waste of time.

We must not only win in November, but afterward, we must do away with the Department of Education, and return the control of our schools locally. If we do not do that, what we gain in November will only last a short while, before it gets out of control again. We must then be pro-active in teaching again the aims of our forefathers, the U.S. Constitution, and the rule-of-law it preserves.
