We have a country taught by government employees to obey government from a young age. Government education is the #1 mistake America made.

You reflect a sad truth. Our corrupted government for a corrupted people is one of force and not one of persuasion as envisioned by the Framing generation.

A government based on the will of the people, limited by a Bill of Rights and of enumerated powers could be nothing but a mild and guiding hand hardly known or felt by the vast majority. Generations of our students were taught the Bill of Rights in school, and the innate goodness of republican government.

My gosh, what happened? How did a largely virtuous people turn on themselves?
