When I was in high school that bit about 'Children are the future.' was becoming popular with the liberals, although it had not yet evolved into a battle cry.

They had that part right. For my grandchildren to have any decent opportunity in life, not just economic, but to be free, they will need a superior education. Not what passes as education in many circles today, but a superior command of both the English Language and mathematics, exposure to classical thought as opposed to the pan drippings of fried liberal brains, and a solid moral base.

That will not come from any of the public schools around here, I am sad to say.

They will, as need be, figure out how to put a condom on a pickle without having had explicit instruction, will understand the difference between love and lust, and hopefully will avoid the pitfalls many of their peers will stumble blindly--or even be propelled into.

They will not be perfect--I do not expect them to be, despite keeping standards high. If they somehow fall short of those standards, they will still be loved.

I just realize that for them or their peers to have any chance to help straighten this country out, they will have to not only know how, but know what they are missing.

There will, within a decade or two be an increasing number of really pissed off young people who will realize (hopefully) how their entire generation has been duped by the liberals. People who can point out that the emperor's new clothes are nonexistent will be at a premium, either for that capability, or from the price on their heads.

It may be a blessing, it may be a curse, but I do for them what I think is best.
