The world has changed, families are smaller, many have only one child. Our economy is the highest or one of the highest in the world according to the variables used to determine it. Even families on the bottom of the socio economic ladder are recipients of significant government assistance that allows them a lifestyle, which is the envy of the developing nations. Our nation is living above its means and eventually will have an economic correction.
In our current culture we must tolerate any obnoxious actions from PC ordained minority groups. These groups are identified by the progressive elites in the media through government legislation on all levels and local selective enforcement of our laws. Members of these groups should be allowed to do whatever they want without consequences because they are assigned special status for supposed past discrimination against them.
The only way to eliminate government’s heel on the neck of citizens is to cut away the rotten waste in all the many bureaucracies. This pruning back of the ever- overgrowing length of all the tentacles reaching out to choke us into submission has to be regularly done. As soon as a task is done, the process has to begin again or it will become too overwhelming to get these territorial kingdoms dismantled without drastic action, such as a revolution. Thomas Jefferson suggested these shake-ups should occur at twenty-year intervals.
The childhood epidemic of Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is misleading. Children with this diagnosis can focus very well on things that interest them. The real issue is they have an unwillingness to concentrate on things they are told to do where they have little interest when they want they can pay attention.
Most modern parents have been indoctrinated with the notion that if you are your child’s BFF (Best Friend forever) they would have a blissful, intimate relationship with each other forever. The child and the parent’s friendly relationship is supposed to keep all communication between them honest and open throughout their years together. The parent will be told everything going on in the child’s life. There will be no surprises since the child will seek out the parent’s advice before making any decisions.
France became the 52nd nation to end any and all forms of corporal punishment of children. This movement has become a well-financed global progressive initiative. Sixty-two percent of French citizens polled reported spanking their children. This is a deflated figure due to political correctness, with 82% of the respondents clearly voicing opposition to the ban, which passed. Statist governments are dictating to parents in 52 nations of the world that spanking for any reason or in any limited form will no longer be allowed by the parent or guardian.
The USA is a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy. The founders of our nation definitely understood that past democracies, dating back to The Golden Age of Greece, were unstable and prone to radical changes in the direction of the nation. It is for this and other practical reasons they chose a representative, federalist form of governance. Our founders were intellectual, rational people who studied the history of civilization learning that a representative republic was the most efficient form of government.
