Saving America, Step 1: Stop Re-writing History

Today, Americans have to fight daily to defend their freedoms and Constitutional rights from an overreaching government. People are fighting fiscal insanity in DC with huge annual deficits; a national debt that has now eclipsed $17,200,000,000,000; the NSA monitoring your calls, texts, and emails; the IRS’ targeting of the Tea Party; and last but no means least – Obamacare.

Do they know the history of your founding, and what led to the revolution, and how men like Thomas Jefferson and John Adams risked their lives just by signing the Declaration of Independence? Are they told about the people who fought in the revolution and the conditions they had to overcome? (Many regularly went barefoot and shirtless, and many survived without blankets.) Are they told about great heroes like George Washington (who was not only a great general but a humble gentleman)? Or were the Founders just a bunch of men who had false wooden teeth, owned slaves, and are irrelevant in today’s world? Is your Constitution, and how it is a document that affects everyone, being taught in school? Are your kids being taught about being an individual or part of the collective? Are they being told government is the solution, or government is the problem? Are they being taught about World History and the role America plays? We all have a duty to ensure the next generation is not only being taught the history of America, but that they are being taught the TRUTH!
