Now, in my empty nest years, I’ve arrived at a time in my life where I know myself more and how to express my beliefs in a concise way.
I love to read and research and talk to people and have good conversations–about the things I believe and about thinks I am against.
I am finding, though, that many intelligent people are confused about many topics and especially about government.
Who’s to blame? Well I blame the education system which has been steadily deteriorating over the last 40 years!
And I can say that with confidence since I spent the last 16 years in the classroom, fighting the system and trying to teach my students the most I could.
So most people don’t understand how our government works, what the political parties are, stand for, or represent.
Regardless of your political leanings everyone should know why they stand for what they stand for and not be swayed by titles, lies and popular beliefs. Or heaven forbid by one news channel!
So I am going to attempt to educate a bit in my blog. My aim is to provide information and let you make the best decision you can make with the information.
We need to get back to our roots as a nation because while we have come a long way, we are on a path to destroying everything this nation promises.
The whole idea behind the American Revolution was we wanted to rule ourselves, by the people, without the tyranny of England. We wanted to run our own economic system without the mercantilist ideals of England…
The patriots pledged their lives and fortunes to the cause. And we won…and so a new way of life began. Let’s not destroy it!
In my next post I’ll talk about the Federalist and Anti-Federalists and their support of the U.S. Constitution.
