Has anyone noticed that during the recent campaigning whenever democrat candidates talked about their accomplishments, they always referred to the legislation they’ve passed by their high sounding but misleading names, i.e., the Inflation Reduction Act that doesn’t reduce inflation or the Infrastructure Bill where 93% of money went everywhere but towards infrastructure; or the amount of money they’ve spent as if that should be the appropriate metric; but they never seem to mention the magic word – results! Their campaigning brought to mind the words of Dan Ackroyd’s character, Dr. Raymond Stanz, in the movie Ghostbusters when he said to Dr. Peter Venkman, played by Bill Murray, “You’ve never been out of college! You don’t know what it’s like out there! I’ve WORKED in the private sector. They expect “results.”
And considering the results of one-party rule in Washington for the last 22 months it’s little wonder the democrats keep repeating the nonsensical statement that democracy is on the ballot – but who can blame them when they have no positive results to show for the last two years.
Meanwhile we’ve watched the clips of Obama, Biden, Hillary, and Abrams continually repeating that phrase, which I find interesting for several reasons. First, the very act of voting, is the essence of democracy, so we should all find it more than a bit insulting that if someone votes for a democrat, then democracy is safe, but if that same individual votes for a republican, then democracy is in peril. Perhaps there’s an alternate universe somewhere where that type of thinking is logical.
At the same time, democrats love to use the term election deniers, even though democrats have a long and storied history of not accepting election results including Stacy Abrams, Hillary Clinton & James Clyburn. Perhaps someone should ask how many democrats, beginning with the President of the United States are inflation, crime, and border security deniers.
I think we have a good idea of where this election is going but on a very personal basis there’s one area of concern that is not receiving the attention it deserves. In Troxel v. Granville, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment protects the fundamental right of parents to make decisions concerning the care, custody, and control of their children.
Yet today, our teachers’ unions continue to violate the most basic duty they owe to their students and their parents i.e., honoring parental rights over the education, care, custody, upbringing, and control of their children.
Teachers subscribing to woke ideology are sexualizing pre-K through 12 children and confusing them into believing their birth genders are changeable at will. These people have custody of our children six to eight hours a day and are morally and legally bound to uphold parents’ rights over children’s education, care, and upbringing. But many teachers flout this responsibility and instead are robbing children of their innocence by using pronouns that differ from a child’s birth gender that confuse young minds. Meanwhile the real horror occurs when “teachers” encourage these mis and ill-informed children to transition without parental consent despite the appalling and irreversible consequences.
The U.S. Supreme Court has held state action that interferes with parental rights to be presumptively unconstitutional. But other than taking this matter to court, where the process is, laborious, time-consuming and subjects both parent and child to unwanted attention and ridicule, there is little a parent can do to stop this ongoing travesty without meaningful legislation.
It’s believed here that our public school system will continue with its sexualization, and gender orientation instruction of innocent minds until they are forced to stop; so, it is my hope, if the Republicans win tomorrow, one of their first acts will be to adopt legislation that puts an end to the abuses and upholds parents’ rights. There are a million reasons to vote Republican tomorrow, this is just one of them.
