Educational Liberty: The Rebellion Against Educational Tyranny
Our education system has become oppressive, shoving Critical Race Theory and the LGBTQ+ agenda down students’ throats and sexualizing our kids.
The Department of Education is trying to inflict a mandate on parents that college debt is their child’s only path forward – but it doesn’t have to be this way!
If we fight for educational liberty, traditional values can still stand firm.
Parents won’t be treated like puppets on strings with no choice in what kind of future they want for their children. It’s time we rebel against tyranny and reclaim our freedom by restoring educational liberty!
Educational Liberty Defined
Let’s take a moment to break down the walls of traditional thinking and explore religious freedom to unlock an enlightened view of educational freedom.
The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution plainly states:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The part you’ll want to bring your attention to is, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
This means that religion may be a cornerstone of many societies, but religious liberty challenges that notion by asserting everyone’s right to practice – or not practice – their faith without government intervention. It celebrates our freedom and fights for separation from the establishment!
Let’s take this further and look at what many call the separation of church and state.
Contrary to popular belief, this phrase cannot be found in the U.S. Constitution.
So where, then, does this phrase come from?
In an iconic letter to the Danbury Baptists penned by Thomas Jefferson, this Founding Father boldly declared that religious expression must remain inviolate to federal authorities, a revolutionary reminder for future generations of the importance of protecting our right to practice faith freely.
He boldly stood up for them in Connecticut, fearlessly reaffirming their right to express themselves freely and independently of government control.
Jefferson’s response, which included “separation of church and state,” was written to reassure them that the First Amendment was in place to prevent the government from infringing on their religious liberty.
Likewise, education should not be a one-size-fits-all system dictated by the government – true liberty means allowing parents to choose their child’s education and preventing compulsory attendance or taxation.
Or, as Jefferson would put it if he were alive today, “the separation of school and state.”
Restoring Educational Liberty
Exercising its grip on power, the federal government continues to meddle with American education – brazenly writing standards and controlling our kids’ curriculums without Constitutional authority.
Dr. Benjamin Rush, one of the most prominent Founding Fathers, is the father of public education under the Constitution.
But when public education was initially introduced, the three primary purposes of public schools were to teach the next generation to:
1. Love and serve God
2. Love and serve their country
3. Love and serve their family
In that order:
God first… country second… and the family third.
Dr. Rush said the reason country comes before the family is that if we ever lose control of our country, it will become the great enemy of our family.
From the beginning of our nation until the 1960s, students were taught these foundational principles that shaped their beliefs. However, an activist Supreme Court declared these values obsolete and, in 1979, instigated a new era by establishing the Department of Education.
Government destroys everything it touches, so is it any wonder why our education system is broken?
Suppose we have any hope of restoring educational liberty. In that case, we must fire the federal government and defund the Department of Education.
Authoritarian governments understand that universal education leads to indoctrination, and the bigger government gets, the more control they have.
Lastly, if you still need to get involved in your local school board, it is recommended that you do it immediately and ensure your voice is heard.
Jameson will fight like hell to limit the government… but it does no good if there’s a complacent electorate.
Stand With Jameson
We won't bend the knee and accept corrupt leadership - it's time for
Texans to stand up and revolt against the Establishment.
Our voices will be heard!
