(“…an “A” in Shakespeare because that person is so removed from common American thought that he would never represent me—or the conservative, constitutional ideals I stand for….”)Jon Christian Ryter — Ivy Leaguers Make Bad Presidents, Part 1
…..So, to me a “D” in Shakespeare is a badge of honor. It means you survived Dread & Duress. I could never, in good conscious every vote for a political candidate who scored an “A” in Shakespeare because that person is so removed from common American thought that he would never represent me—or the conservative, constitutional ideals I stand for.
The fact that he, or she, would waste his or her education on such worthless liberal tomfoolery tells me that he or she believe they are, or wants to be, part of an elite group of the most refined Americans who have been bred to believe their destiny is to rule the rest of us.
But, let’s get back to Gov. Perry for a minute—and to what’s important to the average Jane Doe and Joe Doaks who pays the taxes and does all the backbreaking work, all the fighting and all the dying to keep this country strong. No one outside this country likes us.
But everyone wants to live here. They just want to change the greatest democracy in history into something else. They don’t seem to get it. Once you change who we are, we aren’t it anymore. We become what they are trying to escape.
Believe me when I say this: what’s important to America’s children is not learning about Shakespeare (although a lot of teachers and a whole big bunch of mothers might disagree with me). Me, I never earned a plugged penny in my life from quoting Shakespeare, but I have earned a good living through my knowledge of both American and world history and, even more, how the US government is mismanaged by thieves and opportunists. That’s why what our kids need to learn is everything they can about the history of this nation and its government.
How are they going to know that politicians are stealing the taxpayers blind if they don’t know what politician can and cannot do under the law? But, most important they need to understand their rights under the rule of law through the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
And they need to understand what makes the Bill of Rights different from the European Union Convention on Human Rights, or its UN clone, the UN Covenant on Human Rights.
Under the United States Bill of Rights, liberty is inherent. Under both the UN or EU Convention on Human Rights, freedom is a retractable right given, limited or withdrawn on the whims of politicians because “citizens” are not equals, they are human chattel.
