"You’ll take my guns when you pry them from my cold dead fingers!" shouts a man in the back row, and soon the crowd is on its feet – echoing his
statement and booing the politicians.
Whew! It’s clear we won’t see this sort of thing in my community any time soon.
As I nod in agreement with the crowd, I notice an image out of the corner of my eye – a bright yellow school bus is passing by the window.
And suddenly I realize that just about everyone in the room allows government workers to come every day and take away something – something far more
precious than any piece of metal.
That big yellow school bus takes our children to huge government buildings where most of their waking hours are spent. Where each day begins with an
invocation of loyalty to the state. Where their most treasured spiritual values and symbols are banished. Where peer pressure replaces family values.
Where the truly important questions of life can’t be asked, much less answered. Where pop culture surpasses the classics. Where socialism is taught –
both in theory and by example. Where conformity and indoctrination are far more important than thinking or reading…
Libertarians and most conservatives boldly and nobly take a stand for our right to keep and bear arms. Not so we can go duck hunting, but so we can
defend ourselves and our families from invasion. And so we can, if necessary, defend our liberty from the possibility of a tyrannical state.
------So many great things to read, sorry if i'm posting too much I just really want to share these great things with you all... I never thought
about this the way she wrote about it, and it's true when she talks about having indoctrination and conformity being far more important in school
then reading and thinking.
