Let’s make America great again

The media can't stop President Trump no matter how hard they try. So now Dr. Bandy Lee presumes to call him crazy. Who really is crazy?

Now that we have a President who is not intimidated by the Progressive Ruling Class, this is the time for the American People, regardless of party affiliation, to rise up and restore our government to what it was meant to be: “of the people, by the people, for the people.” This is how President Abraham Lincoln described our government in 1863, after many thousands of brave patriots had sacrificed life and limb for liberty and justice, both in the American Revolution and the American Civil War.

Why the silence?

Attacks on liberty in our schools - common Core and other global initiatives put a worm into this apple, producing students who do not think. Here's another worm: when teachers take a prey from among their own students. Not to mention a teacher who prostitutes herself to a corrupt seller of offices. Or an anti-bullying campaign that pulls a cruel humanitarian hoax by replacing one kind of bullying with another.

Silence can be deadly. When lives are threatened, and those in a position to help refuse to speak out, they become a link to the tragic outcome. How can one remain silent when lives are being destroyed? This moral question was dramatically asked by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of the world’s nations, when he remained silent for 25 seconds in the midst of an address to the United Nations.[i] Why the silence?!

Impossible: a self-fulfilling prophecy

The greatest barrier standing in the way of passage of universal school choice legislation, which is solidly based on the foundation of liberty and free enterprise, is the fact that universal school choice is “politically impossible.” Despite the fact that Milton Friedman’s plan, empowering parents to send their children to the school of their choice, is the only practical way to restore accountability to the system, it remains politically impossible to achieve in New Jersey.
