This is an open letter to the parents of K-12 children in Beaufort County.
Like it or not, believe it or not, the children of America are being brainwashed by our government-controlled public education system to believe that your children's collective goals are more important than their individual achievements. They are no longer being taught that American exceptionalism is the norm. Also, they are not being taught how our Founding Fathers created the most successful type of government in the history of the world.
Last year, when U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson offered to supply copies of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution to the schoolchildren of Beaufort County, the school district refused because they considered it a political gesture. Pardon me, but how can a rational person consider it other than what was intended: To teach your children the basis of how our country was founded.
All across America, the public education establishment is attempting to teach your children that America should endorse a "world Order" that should replace our Constitution.
The people of America can solve our many problems, especially in education. But certainly not so long as government is in control.
As Ronald Reagan once said, "Government is not the solution to our problems. Government is the problem."
Please parents, insist that your children's teachers and the textbooks they use teach them the truth of American history and not the falsehoods of why America is simply one of many.
