There is not a reaping ceremony throughout every region of the United States, choosing one boy and one girl to be put into an arena with 11 other boys and 11 other girls to fight to the death, but there is a way to assure that the idea of rebellion is squashed. Common Core.
The claim of Common Core* is that it teaches “critical thinking” skills, but instead it is overburdening the children in early primary grades, and dumbing down the higher grades. The goal is to break them down, and then when that is accomplished and things are eased up, the children will become complacent. Complacent people do not rebel against tyrants.
Common Core has turned schools into arenas, where children must fight, not for their lives, but for their creativity, for their interests, for their strengths, for their individuality.
The problem is, Common Core was introduced a generation too late… This generation’s parents are waking up, and fighting back… And many are willing to volunteer to get into that arena and fight to the death for our children and their educational freedoms that the “Capitol” are trying like mad to steal.
Appointed Educational Czarships have been created in many states around this country, even in Wyoming, a state that should be one of the most freedom loving, small government states in the union. Position’s that were once held by elected officials are being reduced to nothing but a title, and Governors are replacing them with people they deem “worthy”…
[President Obama appointed] Secretary of the US Department of Education, Arne Duncan, is on damage control, and played the race and social status card claiming the Common Core war was being waged by “White Suburban Moms” who are “upset that Common Core shows their kids aren’t ‘brilliant’” If Common Core is truly state led as the officials keep spouting off, why would the US Department of Education need to intervene?
The Common Core war is far from being the only war being waged against the American people by our federal and state governments. The broken and flawed “Affordable” Care Act is still being shoved down our throats against our will, and will cost far more than anyone can actually afford. There are check points in many states across the country, where federal agents force people to stop and demand to search vehicles (a blatant violation of the 4th Amendment of the US Constitution), Gun control is getting out of hand in many states, the list goes on and on…
This isn’t The Hunger Games, this is a book taking plays out of other books fictional and historical, and it is being written as we speak… there is no need for a movie, because we are living it… Are you going to sit and watch with your drink and popcorn, or fight?
