Liberalism destroys everything it touches
Apostle Claver of RagingElephants.org is telling the truth about Liberalism—it destroys everything it touches. The philosophy of Liberalism is wrong for both individuals and families because Liberalism/ Leftists/Progressives/ Intellectuals value ideas over people. It values the concept of “openness” when history, and our own experience, has taught us that exposing our children to everything is not in their long term best interest. Liberalism says, “Yes!” when we know good parenting means telling our children, “No.” Liberalism says, “OK” to misspelling, incorrect grammar, or incorrect math problems because Liberals value “a good self image” over a correct answer. Liberalism has made it practically illegal to teach the values of good citizenship because the non existent Constitutional separation of church and state has made it impossible to teach our children there is: a value system, a concept of right and wrong, or a way that fosters self-respect through ability and achievement that is superior to self-esteem without merit—no matter how good one may feel about himself.
Schools show the decline
Look at our schools and see what Liberalism has done. When federal funding in our schools is focused around remedial classes, an honest and trustworthy teacher must contemplate that by improving her students attitude toward the joy and satisfaction of real learning, she actually risks working herself out of a job, or the district out of real financial support. The presence of large sums of money for remedial classes actually ensures remedial students. See what Liberalism has done to your children and families. Our schools are free to expose our children to everything perverse in the world, but try to teach honesty, integrity, and character and the threat of lawsuit makes the better teacher a target of derision and vitriol. Our local schools have become a den of thieves rather than a campus of honor and safety. Our children have to put on the tough facade of the smartaleck rather than the smile of happiness that accompanies successful learning because discipline is so haphazard.
School Board Elections
In May, we will be electing new members of our local school board. Think about what’s best for our children for the long-term and ponder within your heart if Liberalism could really be the source of our problems, not the solution. It takes just as long to teach a child correctly as it does to teach a child poorly, it’s just harder to demand the best from each student. Liberalism is easy because “everything” is acceptable. Conservatism takes effort just as parenting takes effort, but the end product is such a joy to us in our old age.
We must revive what we know to be the better choice for the long term benefit for individuals, families, and communities. Liberalism champions the idea over the individual, encouraging each of us to become slaves to our vices by paying us all the way to our own destruction. Liberals have literally bankrupted the entire nation by paying us all the way to our own destruction, the destruction of our families, and the destruction of our communities. We have no more money to pay. We can no longer say, “We’ll just kick the can down the road” and make future generations pay for our Liberal/ Progressive foolishness. We face a $14,000,000,000,000 national debt, as well as State debt, and local debt. Paying people as they self-destruct is a luxury we can no longer afford.
Listen to the words of Apostle Claver as he explains that we only must support what is good for the individual and the family in order to stop what is destroying us as individuals, families, and communities. We know what those things are: honesty, character, integrity because these are the basic requirements to live independent lives.
