THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
This will come as no surprise to anyone, but liberals (a/k/a Democrats) use the public schools and colleges and universities to grind their ideological axes into the “heads full of mush” that are in their classrooms, who are there, presumably, to get an education. Nobody should say that the aforementioned schools don't teach values - it's just that the values they teach are a disdain for America, a dislike for free enterprise capitalism, and an embrace of the Hollywood approach to morality. In other words, they are indoctrinating the students they teach with a liberal left-wing philosophy.
If you watch the news (with the exception of CNN and MSNBC, which is “fake news”) you can probably deduce that our young people (a/k/a Millennial's) voted in large numbers for Democrat candidates this past election cycle. What was the magnet that the Democrats used to get these young people to vote for Democrat candidates that, in any cases, espoused socialist ideas? Some have pointed out that the Democrat “free stuff” politicians appealed to the financially over burdened students by promising that they would forgive their student loans and to institute free college tuition. These young people fell for this propaganda “hook, line, and sinker”, and voted accordingly. Besides, most of the colleges had voter registration tables set up on campuses across the nation, which were stacked with mostly Democrat student volunteers, who reminded students that it was their obligation and duty to vote for the liberal candidates who were offering the “free stuff” that these students wanted financial relief from.
We all know, or should know that 90% of most faculties are staffed by liberals, many of whom dislike or despise our way of life and our capitalist economic system. Ask any student, who exhibits common sense, and he or she will back up that statistic. It's funny that these same liberal faculties champion diversity of ethnic, gender, and sexual orientation, but when it comes to diversity of thought they are eerily silent.
Sir Winston Churchill summed up this thinking when he wrote the following: “If you're not a liberal by the age of 20, you have no heart, but if you're not a conservative by the age of 40, you have no brain”. Very prescient words by Sir Winston, don't you think?.
Looking for “something for nothing” is a very strong emotional appeal to the average naive citizen, especially to those who have a minimal amount of basic economic understanding and knowledge. You can thank our woefully under performing schools and universities who have not explained our free enterprise capitalist system to their students. A system that was handed down to us by our Founding Fathers over 230 years ago. Our forefathers, also in their great wisdom, offered us the pursuit of happiness not the guarantee of happiness as some of our Democrat Socialists seem to want to promise us.
Once our students realize that we don't want to become anther Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, and most African countries who espouse socialism, we hope that they will come to the realization that the United States is “that shining city on the hill” that offers a better life to everyone who wants to take advantage of our capitalist system which has made us the preeminent country in the world, both economically and militarily, and with an extra dose of compassion.
