Youth being led astray

The Spokesman-Review

Those who love this country are very concerned about the direction we are headed. Our young people, who have little understanding of the principles upon which this great country was founded, elected President Obama, and they are supporting the socialist programs he is initiating.

Our country obviously needs help on the national level, but we will never get it by fighting the battle on that front alone. We are losing the battle at the local level, in our schools, for it is in our schools that our young people are being taught that the principles of our founding are no longer of any consequence.

As was noted recently, it is very difficult to make changes on the local level. Those in office will fight to stay there, but if we are going to return our country to the principles that have made it the greatest nation in history, those changes will have to be made. Starting with teacher’s colleges, textbook publishers and school boards, down to the classroom level, we must turn this great ship around. Only you can do it.
