Today, was the annual Town Hall Meeting. Husband asked me not to post this as to not to offend people. I obliged until after the meeting. During the meeting an audience member said that we should respect our neighbors. First, respect is earned not commanded. Second, As Thomas Jefferson said, "To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical." Having to support a system and a tax I think is sinful and tyrannical I will not take lightly, a minor majority is taking money against my will and from my children because they refuse to fund their own children's education. Third, I do respect my neighbors and the Ten Commandments. I will never support a tax increase because, "Thou shall not covet" and "Thou shall not steal" any good Christian would never vote to raise their neighbor's taxes. In my humble opinion, to do so makes said person a huge hypocrite. Fourth, our current public education as it is was designed by progressives to achieve their idea of utopia. The system as it is now as anyone who knows our Founding History would not be one of which our Founders would approve. If they had they would have not found the need to leave England. "Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal." Martin Luther King, Jr. Just because a person supports what is legal does make it moral. Slavery was legal, too. Lastly, character matters.

Sadly, schools tell children what to do and what to think, not how to think for themselves. Worse yet this carries over to adulthood.
