Every one of you has made some great points. You have to stick your neck out, if you canvas for voters in your own neighborhood. It sounds harmless until you realize that the lunatic fringe GOP are all gun nuts, and they have a gut wrenching desire to "hate" all liberals. NONE have been told that the Founding Fathers were all liberals. No telling what junk will be found now, in our kids Text Books, which will most likely be raising more devoted little Birchers & brain-washed little knee-jerk fascists, who learn NO science, and a perverted sense of History, and a skewed type of Reality. HOW DO YOU UN-DO THAT? It has actually been going on behind our backs for a whole Generation or two. Who really noticed how the News has been gradually perverted, (like Fox News) giving a totally false vision of the world and reality? The Net Result is that at least a generation of our kids are brain-washed little robots, who will echo pure nonsense, thinking it is so cute and so funny, and "popular." Who cares about being RIGHT, and knowing the TRUTH, when you can be a "Winner" and so Popular by acting like a total FOOL, and being Proud to be Stupid? Gee Whiz, Mommie, the most popular kids in the school can't spell, can't reason, can't think logically, & everybody in the class applauds them, & votes them in as class leader. (But if you are great in logic and debate, they jeer you & push you aside, like a rotten apple).
Sports trumps intellect, all of the time. The Teacher's internal "bias" is critical, to how the class is taught, - & many schools, even religious schools, are teaching what the Right Wing wants them to teach. After all, as Donald Trump says, he has Tons of Money, & can BUY the results he wants. Many of our school text books come from Dallas, where the right - wing Bias has been going on since the (1963) murder of JFK ---50 years ago. THEY HAD ALREADY brain-washed the school kids to think JFK was a Communist 50 yrs ago. (Read: Claire Conner's book -- "Wrapped in the Flag" (2013) Beacon Press). She was in college in Dallas & went to see the motorcade go by. Fifteen minutes later, JFK was dead. Her parents were leaders in the John Birch Society (JBS) & she knew how the right-wing hated JFK. Her father was on the JBS National Council, She herself suspected the JBS had killed JFK. Her father said to shut up & get a lawyer.
(Robt Welch, leader of the Birch Society, wrote into his 1958 BLUE BOOK (members manual) that "he believed JFK was a Communist" & s/b stopped). SO THE PROOF HAS BEEN THERE ALL THE TIME. (Birchers were a subversive organization, set up to destroy the legitimate US Govt, & install right wingers). And they did not intend to "wait" for yrs & yrs of legitimate elections, when they could arrange to takeover much faster, by murder). Birchers are Communists. And now, they are the modern day TEA PARTY. (Financed by the KOCH brothers, whose Father was trained in Soviet Russia, by "Communist" Dictator - Stalin).
The Republican Party = the John Birch Society = The TEA PARTY = ALL ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY --- financed by the communist KOCH BROTHERS.
And the common factor among ALL of them, is OIL // Bush & Cheney & all the OIL millionaires are involved in this international conspiracy, & they do NOT CARE how much the oil spills destroy our water supply, or ruin our country, or if their WARS bankrupt our country, because Communists do not care about America, they are much more devoted to Russia, & Communist countries. That is why they will ALWAYS insist we have Warfare in the Middle East, because that gives them easy access to ALL the OIL WELLS in those countries. That is the only thing important to Bush & Cheney & the KOCHS. /// Remember That. And never let them make you believe that JEB Bush is any different. (He can play the clown, & speak some Spanish, --- but he is just like the rest of them).
PROMETO LEALTAD A LA BANDERA, DE LOS ESTADOS UNIDAS DE AMERICA --- Y A LA REPUBLICA QUE ELLA REPRESENTA -- UN NACION CON DIOS --- QUE GARANTIZA LIBERTAD Y JUSTICIA PARA TODOS. (The Pledge of Allegiance to America) -- in Spanish. After 4 years of study, I also can speak a few phrases in Spanish --- but unless your heart is in it, -- they are just empty words. I TRULY MEAN IT. ---- but does millionaire oil man Bush?
