An example of how badly America needs an education?

Fewer than enough of us know what’s actually going on in the world or even in our own country. So you see, it is up to those of us who do know to get out there and talk to people. Even if you aren’t prepared to give the answers, at least present the questions. Just talk about it! Raise the interest. Whatever happens, don’t let ignorance prevail.

Politics bores people, but that’s the problem: too many of us aren’t educated. A big question I want to know is… why don’t we know? The Department of Education has failed! Or, has it succeeded? Does the Fed want us to be uneducated – in the history of our country, in the Rights that we were given?

No! Generally speaking, I’d bet more Americans are educated in the life of celebrities than on their civil liberties. Can you name all the Rights the Constitution gave to The People? Do you even know where the Bill of Rights is in the Constitution? Why didn’t they teach us?

How many people out there can recite their Rights? Well, I went to federal (public) schools for most of my life, and I was never taught a damn thing about the Constitution until I took an introductory class to politics in University.

So how many American’s didn’t take a politics class in university? How many were taught in high school? How many thought that school sucked, so didn’t pay attention in class anyways?

Despite how stupid these people might seem, all they really need is the motivation and a bit of understanding. Once people get a taste of the truth, they’ll be begging for more, and they will stand up for their freedoms.

As the joke goes, “Ron Paul doesn’t deliver babies with his hands, he reads them the Bill of Rights and they come crawling out for freedom.” If people just knew the truth, they would be begging to have their Rights back.

“Spread the word.” – Ron Paul
