The educaters of our nation are mostly liberal/progressive. And have no problem misleading our youth. Our children are learning garbage.

They have many Freepers believing that Anwar Al-Awlaki’s kids, born in Yemen to one citizen parent, are natural born citizens of the US eligible to be President.
Natural born citizens are naturally citizens because they have only one nationality.
People born with multiple nationalities are precisely who the founders were excluding.

There are many, many reasons that can be cited for this loss, however there have been certain events at the federal level that accelerated this process. I will cite, in my mind, The top influences
- The civil war. Which made it absolutely clear that individual nations may NOT sever their ties with the United States. It is a loss of the 10th amendment, and the destruction of state autonomy.
- 16th amendment taxation. Which also totally eliminated the 4th amendment protections. It put the control of the monetary supply into the hands of PRIVATE individuals who did NOT answer to the people. These individuals raped our economy and decimated the value of the dollar to today where one dollar is actually worth less than one cent. 1909.
- 17th amendment democratic election of Senators. Which fundamentally changed the nature of a Republic to more of a Democracy. Now the Senate behaves much differently than it was intended to, and its role is substantially different as well. 1912.
- 19th amendment provided women the right to vote. Which also then immediately changed the demographics of the electorate. Fundamentally, women uniformly look towards safety and security. While men prefer labor and justice. This change opened up and paved the way for the welfare state that exists today.
The problem is that, for a man, living in safety is not enough. We have to live a life of freedom. Its a manly thing that most women cannot understand. They want a safe, nurturing environment. They want to nest with nesting behaviors.

The atom bomb will be when we reassert the 10th Amendments power, eroded to large degree by Snarlin Arlen Specter. The 2nd atom bomb will be to officially change the born here as a citizen craziness.

(Americans are Dreamers too!!!)
Mass education was the ingenious machine constructed by industrialism to produce the kind of adults it needed. The problem was inordinately complex. How to pre-adapt children for a new world a world of repetitive indoor toil, smoke, noise, machines, crowded living conditions, collective discipline, a world in which time was to be regulated not by the cycle of sun and moon, but by the factory whistle and the clock.
The solution was an educational system that, in its very structure, simulated this new world. This system did not emerge instantly. Even today it retains throw-back elements from pre-industrial society. Yet the whole idea of assembling masses of students (raw material) to be processed by teachers (workers) in a centrally located school (factory) was a stroke of industrial genius. The whole administrative hierarchy of education, as it grew up, followed the model of industrial bureaucracy. The very organization of knowledge into permanent disciplines was grounded on industrial assumptions. Children marched from place to place and sat in assigned stations. Bells rang to announce changes of time.
The inner life of the school thus became an anticipatory mirror, a perfect introduction to industrial society. The most criticized features of education today the regimentation, lack of individualization, the rigid systems of seating, grouping, grading and marking, the authoritarian role of the teacher are precisely those that made mass public education so effective an instrument of adaptation for its place and time.

I see your point, but Wickard, a unanimous decision, gave exactly the sort of unlimited interpretation of Congress’ commerce power that you oppose. The decision held that a few acres of home-grown wheat, none of which left the farm on which it was grown, could be regulated by Congress under the commerce power.

Nope. The quote is from Justice Thomas’s dissent to Gonzales v Raisch, the case George Bush pushed through the USSC.
