Here’s a thought: President Donald Trump getting elected is a VERY temporary slow down of the insanity in our country.

The problem is the lack of historical education, logical thinking, and true study of our nation’s history and our impact on the rest of the world. If we don’t change what is taught in our public schools and universities, and the way they get funded, and who gets hired to teach (mostly liberals with radical views), then we will be outnumbered. Conservatives, patriotic Americans, have not had a long term view and that is why our nation has suffered. We always think one battle, one election at a time; whereas, the left thinks about long term change towards their ideology.

IF, and that is a big IF, President Donald Trump and Congress make a significant change as listed above, then the Conservative movement will have to wait a minimum of 8 years before kids start graduating from High School and College with the mindset that THEY are responsible for their future, that THEY must work for and earn things and not take them from others (via taxes and redistribution of wealth), that THEY are responsible for their actions, and that THEY and EVERYONE else must follow the laws equally, and that Capitalism NOT Socialism is what made America great, and on and on and on. Remember, that in the intervening years, colleges will still be churning out the sheeple of the past generation and our movement will be getting smaller by percentage compared to the far left progressive agenda. After that 8 years, we MIGHT be able to come back if we can keep schools ACTUALLY EDUCATING OUR CHILDREN.

IF WE DON’T MAKE THIS REQUIRED CHANGE, after four years of President Trump, our society will by and large choose another Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, and America will be permanently lost to the socialism/ Marxism/ communism that we had to fight against these last 8 years and at this last election. There will be no coming back from the millions of new illegal aliens, open borders, and new liberal voters being churned out by these so called “colleges” in our country today. It will be similar to the Braveheart movie concept of jus primae noctis “If we can’t drive them out, we will breed them out”. In effect, we will be allowing our country to “breed” generations of non-thinking, feelings oriented, progressive, liberal, sheep that just follow the orders they are given by their beloved government. Make no mistake America, this change must take place. It will be hard, but if we do not persevere for the next 12 years and beyond, this slight 4 year setback for the Democrat party, of President Trump, will be just that; “a minor setback” in the annuls of America’s progressive history.

Here is something John Adams said almost 200 years ago and it describes to a T what is happening in our country today:

“Suppose a nation, rich and poor, high and low, ten millions in number, all assembled together; not more than one or two millions will have lands, houses, or any personal property; if we take into the account the women and children, or even if we leave them out of the question, a great majority of every nation is wholly destitute of property, except a small quantity of clothes, and a few trifles of other movables. Would Mr. Nedham be responsible that, if all were to be decided by a vote of the majority, the eight or nine millions who have no property, would not think of usurping over the rights of the one or two millions who have? Property is surely a right of mankind as really as liberty. Perhaps, at first, prejudice, habit, shame or fear, principle or religion, would restrain the poor from attacking the rich, and the idle from usurping on the industrious; but the time would not be long before courage and enterprise would come, and pretexts be invented by degrees, to countenance the majority in dividing all the property among them, or at least, in sharing it equally with its present possessors. Debts would be abolished first; taxes laid heavy on the rich, and not at all on the others; and at last a downright equal division of every thing be demanded, and voted. What would be the consequence of this? The idle, the vicious, the intemperate, would rush into the utmost extravagance of debauchery, sell and spend all their share, and then demand a new division of those who purchased from them. The moment the idea is admitted into society, that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. If “Thou shalt not covet,” and “Thou shalt not steal,” were not commandments of Heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society, before it can be civilized or made free.”

America has already reached this point.  The rallying cry of the Democrats is essentially, “The rich aren’t paying their fair share, give their money to us/the poor”.  The ONLY way to fix our country, is to fix our education system.
