The election on November 7 of this year left conservatives in the dark. There were very few success stories. Many blame the chairwoman of the Republican party, who is related to Mitt Romney. I am sure there is plenty of blame to spread around. But in some cases, it was difficult to work hard to win, and still lose. That was hard to take.
I believe the primary reason conservatives lost the last election had little to do with strategy. It had a lot more to do with the attitude of those who voted.
Many young people voted for the first time. Others voted who had been out of school for a few years. A very large percentage of these voters supported liberal candidates.
Children who attended K-12 school for 13 years naturally graduated with a Marxist, the-government-has-all-the-answers philosophy. Teachers who are part of the problem do not even recognize that their philosophy of teaching is mainly Marxist. Is it any wonder that our children grow up believing that government is the answer for every problem? As a result, they tend to vote for the candidate who will give them the larger, more intrusive government
Until we take control of our K-12 education this problem will only get worse. It is the Teacher colleges, the National Education Association, and the textbook publishers, along with the liberal teachers, who are indoctrinating our young people. It is past time for us to elect conservative, pro-America people to our school boards, and give those same boards power to fire teachers who do not reflect traditional American values.
Unless we take action, the problem will only get worse.
