    ...where is this chant heard?
    here?
       HERE???
    As the Constitution is being ignored...
    As the people give their power to the federal government
    And give up their power at the local level...
    And accept despotism by way of…
    As crony capitalism remains unchecked…
    As unwise voting continues…
    As….

      What is unwise voting to you, Kathryn?

        Voting for career politicians…not voting for new blood unconnected to the shoestrings that the career politicians become connected to…

        The system was designed for those who would go to Washington and then back to their own work.  We should not have Senators in office for fifty years. Due to human nature, when they stay in so long, they become corrupted.

        For instance, how did Harry Reid, (in office since 1987) acquire more than $15 million?

        Unwise voting is not voting for those who will work for the people instead of against the people.

          I agree.

            ...maybe getting rid of the Department of Education would reduce the amount of idiots.  LOL!
            Also:
            * allow vouchers to allow fee choice for public schools.
            * incentives for home school.

              Conservatives always seem to have a problem with the idea of 'education' of the masses in principle, surely you are not allied with them?

                I believe in the power of citizens to educate themselves and choose on a local level the best education they can find.

                    I am on the side of LIFE for America.
                    I also think Marco Rubio as President could resuscitate the country.

                  On the local level the best is often not very good.

                    At the state level they sure know what is best for you don't they.  Take "Common Core" for example…
                    This govt. mandated program is replacing the volition of teachers and obliterating the art of teaching from the teaching profession.
                    Now everyone is bored… the children AND the teachers.
                    ...good work putting the nation to sleep.

    I don't we can change the fact that idiots vote for idiots.

    But we certainly could work to change how long they remain in office.

        If the Federalist Papers are not introduced at any educational level, how are the people supposed to comprehend how our government should work?

        If students are not exposed to classic philosophers / enlightened thinkers such as Plato, Hume, Locke, Montesquieu et all how are they supposed to understand human nature and how govt. and human nature must jive?

        You think Govt. inspired "Common Core" will see to it? Why would they?
        The enlightened thinkers reveal the power of the individual and the necessity of liberty for all.
        ...and how to recognize tyranny when it rises its ugly head.

          The education system absolutely sucks. I agree with that completely.
