There are certain steps our “government” must make to destroy our over 200 year old Republic. The first step is to use the government to educate the masses with their own viewpoints, recipe which may be contrary to our own beliefs. The minds of our young are like sponges and without life’s experiences, esophagitis they will pretty much believe what they are told by their teachers. After 2 generations of being fed leftist propaganda, troche they are transformed into what educational institutions want them to be. Is there any doubt that the Socialists are running our schools and universities? So, the first step is complete!
The second step is to fill the media with leftist “journalists”. After all, they are the recipients of leftist education, are they not? That step is also complete!
The next is to fill the courts with leftists so whatever laws the government can not pass by the will of the people, they can get the courts to change. We are subject to laws that the lawmakers themselves don’t obey. Then they can control us by taxation by stealing our money by “legal” means. They are licensed thieves in a sense. They have all the power over us and we have little. That step is complete!
The next is to stifle unwanted speech, which is against the constitution. But what does the constitution mean when the people are not taught true, but revised history in our schools? We have many means to express ourselves and one of the most effective ways is talk radio and the Internet. Talk radio is a private enterprise and represents the attitudes of the majority of Americans simply because their success suggests that to be true. We all know that the leftist liberals on talk radio have failed and the conservative people on the right have grown to outnumber the left to a ratio of 20 to 1. So, what will the Socialists do next? They will use the FCC to control what is being said on the airways in the name of “fairness”! All honest people know this is a phony excuse to shut up conservative speech but you can bet the Socialists like the lying Nancy Pelosi and Frank Reid will not defend the first amendment. Who will challenge them? WE MUST! The constitution was written to limit the powers of government. This step is in the works!
Colin Powell recently made the comment that the people want more government to provide more services. There are, no doubt, those that do. Many of them are the “losers” and lazy amongst us. They would rather have the working class give them what they want by way of the government “spreading the wealth”, as Obama said to “Joe the plumber” during his campaign. How can this be good for us? It isn’t good for the poor as it will destroy incentive to better one’s self. We have absolute proof of this in every major city in the United States. They have been taught that they are “victims” of the “rich” by the leftists in government for the prime purpose of getting votes. The victim groups keep getting bigger and bigger, poorer and poorer and more full of hate for the “rich”! Conservatives and especially Christians are considered ignorant and superstitious. Next, we will be considered not to be human, just as the unborn are not worthy of being born. The Democrats are experts at using class warfare. It’s a Marxist tactic. Fascist Hitler did the same thing to the Jews.
All of us who love America and treasure the constitution, know we are in real trouble. We have relied on the conservative branch of government and they have tucked in their tails and ran. They are being told to move to the left, to agree with the left and to accept the “big tent” theory. Did the liberals ever tell the left to move to the right? Did they ever agree with the right on anything? Are the pro-life politicians allowed in the Democrat “big tent”! Only if they keep their mouths shut!
The left has everything going their way. Why is that? How did all this happen without many of us knowing about it. We need only to look at ourselves! We allowed it to happen! It comes down to the rule of law and where those laws came from. Every society has to have guidelines and standards to follow or they will fall into utter chaos. Our laws came from the religious beliefs of our founding fathers and are mainly based on the ten commandments. If they were not, where did our laws come from? Our forefathers just made them up as they went along to suit themselves, they say! That’s what they want us to believe so that they can change the laws at will and so they can pick and choose the laws for their own personal political power and gain. The politicians on the left and some on the right have abandoned their principles for political self preservation. Our founding fathers were wise men. They gave us the constitution and also amended it to control the power of government over the people. We have a representative Republic! This means power of the people over the government. They also said we will have this Republic as long as we can keep it. That is what we must do! The liberals, er…progressives, have put their faith in themselves and the democrats in government. We have been divided by the Democrat party to be jealous of one another and the hate keeps growing over time. The vitriol is seething out of the eyes of the left. We saw this with the treatment of Sarah Palin, Miss California and others by the mainstream media and the Hollywood left. This is where we are now!
There is hope! That hope is the American people and the constitution. We must reinforce the real intents and meaning of the constitution and stop allowing the leftists in government to make their own rules. We can not allow the left to take away our first amendment right of free speech. This is what the “tea parties are all about! The left already hates all of us and want to make us look like a bunch of “astro-turf”, anti-government terrorists, not a grass roots effort by all political groups. When the leftists protest and burn up buildings and cars, they are considered disenfranchised patriots practicing their constitutional rights of assembly and free speech!
There is one more important amendment. That of course is the second amendment. This may be the only thing standing between us and the hateful Socialists that make up the Democrat party under the likes of Pelosi, Harry Reid and of course Obama. We must speak up! The tea parties must get bigger. What else do we have left? Our government is against almost half of it’s own citizens. Time is running out! See article on what may happen if we don’t wake up soon!
I believe this situation to be true of most school districts in the Lehigh Valley Pa. and possibly across the country. It certainly is a budget/dollar and cents problem but I believe more so it to be a problem of distorted truths, resuscitation
along with attitude and political correctness of thought, store thereby making real life decisions almost an impossibility for some people to make.
We have serious problems in our school district and these types of letters to our local School Board and the School Administration should be sent. Any one who wishes to copy this letter and send it to their school administration/ school board is welcome to do just that, page
with only one stipulation, you must believe these things true, I do and therefore I wrote them.
Dear Dr. Lewis and School Board Members
Bethlehem Area School District (BASD)
Let me state with a certainty that I believe there will be a melt down of the economic and social fabric within the United States. The analysis of the current BASD budget problems cannot be evaluated by simply looking at what the numbers represent for the problem goes much deeper.
Even with the conventional wisdom of prioritizing of needs, attempting to live within the means of the district’s revenues and revaluating the management system thereby developing saving through cost cutting; yet even if these commonsense thoughts were to be introduced, it would still not address the main problems within the system.
The main problem of the District and the Board is one of attitude and suppositional beliefs. We have a School District and Board that is driven by emotionalism supported by an attitude of tax and spend along with a void in discernment of whom the people of both the administration and the board are responsible too.
Let me attempt to explain my words of “discernment of” and “responsibility to”. We have here in the USA a Republic that is established through laws formulated in Western Civilization over centuries. It was common knowledge and completely accepted that our rights where given to us by God and the Constitution represented the law of the land. The Constitution was the guarantor, not the grantor, of our liberties. So neither the School District nor the government gives us nothing, the “discernment of” that concept is lost and/or gone from the board and school administration. The “responsibility too” God, taxpayer, (family) student and finally themselves is gone and has become greed, power and control.
We cannot see how anything that has been conveyed in the newspaper over the last years shows us any order of responsibility and/or discernment of the basic problems within the administration and board. Emotionalism and political correctness rules rather than law and order, upholding standards and principles are not there and academic standards have fallen to depths not seen before. Recklessness of spending rather than prudent concern of debt and future generations are completely abandon.
The budget process is made a mockery, while the taxpayers watch in disbelief. The debt is arguably well past the point were the citizen can support it. If it was not for the bail-out funny money which I have no doubt will dry up in the coming year there would not be a balanced budget. Along with the refinancing of the Bonds, which places the people deeper in debt, we begin to see a bleak financial picture for the citizens of Bethlehem. And after reviewing the situation we find a dismal circumstance facing us, and it is no wonder we have the superintendent deciding to abandon the ship, along with a school board that refuses to face reality.
If the school board cannot and/or will not get hold of the truth of the problems we face, the citizens of Bethlehem will face serious ramifications, as these problems get progressively worse. I would urge you to consider these words carefully.
Sincerely a citizen of Bethlehem, Pa.
