“I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure.”

A father was shocked to find a note in his 4th grader son’s bag that indicated his teachers had instructed children at the school to accept that they should be willing to give up some Constitutional rights in order to be more safe.

Aaron Harvey from Florida found a note scrawled in Crayon in his son’s back pack that read “I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure.”

I don't understand how this has a place in public education? A teacher actually sat down and had students write “I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure.”? Where does this stop? And why do we as Americans allow it?

This "teacher" should be fired immediately. You're there to educate students, not push your screwed up liberal agenda.


It is precisely because of incidents like this that more and more parents are turning to home schooling. Indeed, constitutional expert and former Congressman Ron Paul recently announced the launch of his own home schooling program that promises to center heavily around The Constitution and how it “has been hijacked.”

I think Ron Paul has a great idea and home schooling really needs to become more mainstream. And to be honest, with the internet so readily available, there's absolutely no reason why education shouldn't start moving in that direction.

If I found that in my kids backpacks I would be at that school demanding to know why my child was told to write something like that and demanding for that teacher to be fired as well as getting a complete curriculum for what is taught in class. That is unbelievable.

“They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

Ben Franklin

What our forefathers thought

They should make the teacher write this on the chalkboard a million times or until his fingers bleed, whichever comes last.

It does not matter if he gets fired, he/she is an agent. Meant to go spread propaganda in the public school system, he will be fired or move on to another school with a perfect resume or completely new one, and he/she will continue spreading this message. The question is how many of these "teachers" do you think there are?

Keep letting the government raise your kids. This is what you get.

It doesn't make sense to give up your rights to be more safe. Why do people want to give up our laws that give us the right to life and liberty? Life will throw a left hook from time to time. However, as humans with so much power this is what give us the right to take care of ourselves and others.

I am not willing anyone who thinks that is fine with government being the master, and not the servant of the people.

I would take my child out of that school and get them a real education.

Not shocking…just very sad!

I’ll have to seriously consider eating Top Ramen and PB&J for the next decade so I can put my kids in private school. It’s sad that public education is failing us so badly. Fortunately for me, here in Texas it’s not that bad yet.

Nice find! S&F!

You know this was the type of crap people where affraid of when the Government instituted compulsory public education, back than people didn't want the government forcing its view on their children.

Sounds like its time to rethink public education hell from the test scores coming out of public schools maybe we should just call it public indoctrination, as education is about the last thing going on there.

But that's the big Kafkaesque joke of it all, isnt it?

Everyday globally low test scores, blatant indoctrination, scheming unions, zero-tolerance insanity and even child abuse by teachers and administrators makes headlines and the cry from the masses is that we need more government involvement, more taxes to fund it, less private and homeschooling.

It's all some nauseating joke letting the morons run everything. Since it will never end consider it a running gag.

I wish we could bring Thomas Jefferson back just for a single day to see what he thinks about modern America. I don't even think he'd make it the full day without having a heart attack.

What is that teacher thinking.

More appropriate would be "If I willingly give up some of my constitutional rights I will be less safe and secure."

Even though no crime was committed, perhaps we should send this "educator" to solitary confinement in prison for a week.... so she can give up some of her rights and be "safe" and "secure." That might drive the point home.

I think Jefferson would become the next spree killer, but on Capital Hill ..and it wouldn't even take the old man a full day to snap. Just my thinking on how the Founding Fathers would deal with today's reality.

I think they would be pissed at us for not grabbing our muskets and dealing with this crap.

You are most likely correct. Especially since George Washington was a general. He wouldn't put up with this B.S.

First, grow up, it's not a "Liberal agenda", if that were the case how do you explain a REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT rolling out the Patriot Act?!

I'm sick of this maniacal partisan rubbish! Both parties are bad in different ways, but so many completely ignore the same acts by their own party politicians when it suits them, throwing around words like "communist" and "socialist" when their own conservative leaders have done things that would be considered that!

Tell me, what is so conservative about a Republican president bailing out bankers and corporations? That right there is SOCIALISM.

Now that is out of the way, I agree that there is no place in education for this kind of nonsense. There is enough indoctrination from both sides in America as it is! Why can't people just let their kids be kids instead of using them for political point scoring?

You can accept the morality of people wishing to end gun crime and symphathize but to not see the
importance of the Constitution , especially a teacher is boggling to say the least.
One can conclude that certain people are uninformed and jump on any media
driven band wagon then acting righteously when in reality they are stupid tyrant enablers
needing a history lesson.

I agree, Republicans did much of the same while in office... and it looks like they haven't learned much as they consider Jebb Bush as their next presidential candidate. It just seems like a lot more is being done now with a stronger following. 95% of black Americans vote Obama... I wonder why? Do you know how many times I've been called racist for simply not agreeing with everything the Messiah does or says?

So is it a liberal issue... right now, yes. When Bush was in office? Not so much. I understand the 2 party system is nothing more than 2 heads of the same dragon. But Democrats have fallen hook, line and sinker for everything they spoke out against during Bush... if not more.
