Ron Paul on Homeschooling
The political involvement of homeschoolers at state and local levels is necessary to protect parental rights. Even at the national level, it is necessary for groups such as the Home School Legal Defense Association to keep members apprised of shenanigans perpetrated in the Imperial City.
Nevertheless, I've been disturbed by the mindless support offered up by homeschoolers to the GOP, particularly with regard to the war, where the homeschoolers I know are still largely enlisted in the imperial project in Mesopotamia.
I hadn't thought about Ron Paul's position on homeschooling. I simply assumed he was supportive of parents and families trying to free themselves in some limited way from the tentacles of the state and culture of mediocrity and atheism enshrined in public schools.
I wasn't disappointed. Here is a press release from the Paul campaign.
Will homeschoolers support Paul? The question is merely rhetorical. HSLDA has already endorsed Mike Huckabee. Yes, you read that correctly--Mike Huckabee.
Given Paul's support for homeschoolers over many years, why would the HSLDA endorse Huckabee? Because the HSLDA is joined at the hip with the GOP and any deviation from conservative dogmatics precipitates excommunication of the heretic.
Support for Bushian foreign policy now defines the GOP, and those who dissent in the political sphere face rhetorical and political assaults. Battered by amoral sexual degenerates and revolutionaries on the left and corporate shills and militarists on the right, I am a politically homeless pilgrim wandering aimlessly in search of a place to call home.
