The School Revolution: A New Answer for Our Broken Education System

The School Revolution: A New Answer for Our Broken Education System

September 17th, 2013, Constitution Day, and coincidentally the official release date of former Congressman Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul’s new book, The School Revolution: A New Answer for Our Broken Education System. The good doctor’s book release is another great accomplishment in his distinguished career. And it could quite possibly be a milestone that marks the coming change, the revolution, as it were, to education in America. It comes on the heels of the launching of his website www.RonPaulCurriculum.com which is an online resource of curriculum for home-schoolers with students in grades K-12.  Together, the new book and the home school curriculum will revolutionize the way many parents view and approach the education of their children.

Although, I have yet to read the book, we have pre-ordered 20 copies to share. Our goal is to use Dr.Paul’s book to open minds, spark discussions, and help other parents free their children from the slavery of compulsory, government education. Dr. Thomas E. Woods who has worked closely with Dr. Paul developing the home school curriculum recently shared his thoughts on Dr. Paul’s latest release in his article titled, “The Central Ingredient in the Ron Paul Revolution”

Dr. Paul has long contended that education has always been more important to him than politics. He has stressed for years that the most important thing that we can do is educate ourselves, our family, our friends, and neighbors. Studying the theories of Austrian Economics, seeking the truth when studying history, and understanding and being able to articulate the political philosophy of libertarianism, are worthy pursuits in the quest for knowledge.  Sharing the ideals of liberty and guiding others to explore the benefits of voluntarism, as we work towards a free and truly voluntary society, may be the most important individual contribution we all can make.  I encourage all readers of this article and lovers of liberty to follow Dr. Paul’s sound advice, read his new book, and consider homeschooling your children and grandchildren in an effort to lead us to a freer society.

Opting out is nice, but not rEVOLutionary…It’s time to up the ante

In News Stories, Political Activism on November 15, 2010 at 2:10 am

Opting out as an individual is an excellent way to take a stand against the inhumane, unconstitutional policies of the Transportation Security Administration. It serves a distinct purpose in drawing attention to the issue of the invasive and abusive actions and policies of  the TSA.

Public knowledge of the issue and grassroots support is growing at an alarming rate, and November 24th, national “Opt out day” is right around the corner. The grassroots efforts put forth on the 24th will certainly make for some interesting news and put the pressure on the powers that be. I hope the impact is enough to return sound, humane security measures to the daily operation of our airports, but I doubt it.

Personally, I believe it is time to up the ante. Nothing less than a full scale peaceful rEVOLution that includes a simultaneous nationwide boycott by customers, and a strike by pilots and flight attendants, is the only answer to the problem facing Americans who wish to travel freely and unencumbered by abusive, inhumane, Gestapo-esque TSA.  It goes like this:

Day 1 ~ Conduct a nationwide strike/boycott, demand the airlines stop using the Advanced Imaging Technology, aka AIT or porno-scanners, and demand a cease and desist on the enhanced pat down procedures, aka groin and breast massages, immediately.

Day 2 ~ If they have not capitulated, continue the nationwide strike/boycott.

Day 3 ~ If they still have not capitulated, continue the nationwide strike/boycott. Rinse and repeat until they cooperate.

Day ? ~ After the cease and desist is accomplished, demand removal of AIT from airport premises within 10 business days. If they fail to cooperate and provide time-line for removal, start nationwide strike/boycott again.

Day whatever ~ Demand a return to airport run, private security and removal of TSA from airport premises. repeat strike/boycott until desired ends are achieved.

Repeat process relative to every other known federal incursion into the lives, property, and business of private individuals. In the interim drive, take a bus or a train, if you must fly, look into private charters from smaller municipal airports, Rinse, repeat, rest.

UPDATE: Since I originally posted this opinion I stumbled upon this article on FORBES calling for the abolition of the TSA. Bring it on I say!

Swine Flu? Mandatory Vaccinations? Big Hoax and Big Win for Big Pharma.

In News Stories on July 17, 2009 at 12:14 pm

There has been a lot of chatter for months now about the swine flu. Epidemic, pandemic, whatever you want to call it. Researches have shown this to be a man-made virus, with many of the same characteristics of the engineered virus deployed during WWI. As the pandemic spreads, so does the pandemonium, fueled by the evil WHO, the corrupt CFR owned U.S. government and the CFR owned mainstream media. Believe it, or not, whether actual (as in engineered and real), or  hoax (as in a lie, “here take this shot in the arm”) it is coming our way.

One of the most prolific generators of truthful and alternative viewpoint news reports is Russia Today. While I am sure that RT has its own agenda, more often than not, they provide  the other side of the story, much needed and much appreciated. Here is their latest piece on the swine flu and the prospect of compulsory or forced vaccinations in the U.S.

Dr. Ron Paul on The Gaza-Israel Conflict

In News Stories on January 5, 2009 at 1:45 pm

The following video was given to us by our friends at the Campaign for Liberty, C4L for short. (Which you should join IMMEDIATELY if you care at all about the principles on which this great nation was founded!) It is Dr. Ron Paul’s candid analysis of the Palestine /Israeli conflict taking place right now in Gaza. Before you watch this video, consider a few things. First, if you are on this blog than you are probably of the belief that the U.S. news media is not a credible source of information. Second, you have had enough of the lies from our government. The media is, and has been for decades, a propaganda tool of the corporate and financial elite. And yes, even your beloved Fox News. Where you can hear morning news anchor Steve Doucy say “I’m pro” in relation to New World Order. Many patriotic minded Americans have wrapped themselves around a cause, or causes and made that their primary focus. Their issue is at the forefront when they are on their soapbox privately and, or, publicly. They take it into the voting booth with them. They shout it from the bumper sticker or ribbon magnet on their car. They seek justice, for the troops, the environment, the unborn. I too have a cause, or issue. I am a single issue voter. I admit it. My issue is Liberty. I believe it is the very message that Dr. Ron Paul has been sharing for 30 years. Quite simply, if you look at the facts, it covers all of the other issues in one fell swoop. Those of us that have made liberty our cause have your back.

I have an opinion on Palestine and Israel. You see, I have been dong my own independent research on the creation of the state of Israel. I suggest you do the same, not buying the MSM propaganda or listening to the federal government. A great place to begin the journey is to google: “Arthur James Balfour” and “Balfour Declaration of 1917”. Also, know that Israel came into existence through British doctrine, fulfilling an “obligation” to Rothschild, and ultimately U.N. intervention. Wherever there was/is British foreign policy and U.N. intervention, there is evil. You MUST read The Fearful Master, by G. Edward Griffin to fully understand the history and purpose of the U.N….Here’s Ronny!

Where Are the news Stories About Iceland and Greece?!

In News Stories on December 31, 2008 at 4:44 pm

I consider myself to be an information junkie, a consummate seeker of truth, always searching. In my quest for knowledge this morning, I set out to get some updates on the “situation” in Iceland. I went to the normal sources google search, yahoo, dogpile, The Drudge Report, youtube, etc…To my dismay I found nothing current or at all relevant to the financial collapse. Not wanting my conspiracy theory filled imagination to run away, I enlisted the help of my wife to assist with the search. We utilized a variety of keywords, and keyword combinations, such as: Iceland, Iceland Financial, Iceland crisis, Iceland unrest, Iceland riot…With the wheels spinning, we did the same for Greece, wondering what kind of updates that we would find regarding their civil upheaval. We searched and searched for something substantive, but alas, to no avail. We could not find any reports, stories or videos newer than the 2 weeks old…Interesting coincidence?! Peculiar?! I thought so. But, I do not like to jump to conclusions. I encourage our fellow patriots to do some digging and share your thoughts what you find.

The most interesting and scary piece of “journalism” I could locate was the following article from the Brussels Journal. Thoughts?

Will Iceland Join The EU in 2009?

European Commissioner for Enlargement Olli Rehn said earlier this month during a videoconference with Reykjavik from Oslo that the European Commission is already mentally preparing for a membership application from Iceland, and that a rapid treatment of the application could not be excluded. He mentioned specifically that the island could become a member of the European Union already before the end of 2009, even before Croatia.

Iceland came in serious financial difficulties this year as a result of the global banking crisis, which made the banking sector on the island collapse completely. One of the side effects of that collapse has been that the Icelandic crown’s value has fallen like a brick, hitting a large part of the population, even those who didn’t actively participate in the island’s banking adventure. It’s not uncommon on the island to have the loan for the house or the car in foreign currency, primarily the euro, and some islanders found themselves these last months paying more on interests on their loans than they earn in a month’s time. Even those who didn’t take loans in foreign currencies were hit by the crisis, because local interest rates went completely through the roof, and fixed interest rates on loans are virtually an unknown concept in the country. As a consequence, several demonstrations took place in the local capital Reykjavik in November and December, some of them even ending in riots, a rarity on the island, even though we’re still far away from Greek-anarchic style “demonstrations”. It is worth noting though that some of the demonstrations mobilized as many as several thousands of protesters, a significant number considering there live only 300,000 people on Iceland.

The island is a member of NAtO, EftA, EEA and the Schengen Area, but has so far kept itself outside the European Union. Opinion polls have always shown a large opposition against EU membership, and therefore Iceland is the only Nordic country that hasn’t even organized a referendum on EU membership. One of the reasons why Iceland never has wanted to join the EU are the rich fishing grounds around the island, but recently the strong and very expansive banking sector became an argument too. Now that the latter has collapsed completely, the argument has disappeared too, and the EU wind on the island has shifted direction radically. According to the latest opinion polls, there would now be a large majority favoring accession to the EU.
