The Constitution was written by the representatives of the people to create a government that would protect the God given rights of the people. The authors of the Constitution knew that the government would need to be restrained or it would eventually enslave the people that it was created to protect.
From the very beginning there were those in high places who sought to use power to gain unrighteous dominion over the masses. These same kind of conspiring men knew that they could persuade Congress to write laws that would benefit them at the expense of their constituents. They knew they could use the government to control the lives, liberty and property of the people.
The Founders also knew that if the masses were kept in the dark they would be much more obedient and easier to control. They also knew that they could control the people if they could control the media. By controlling what the people were thinking, hearing and seeing in the news, they could control the people's behavior. They also realized that if the government were able to control the curriculum in the schools they could brainwash the students in to believing propaganda instead of learning. Rather than teach our youth HOW to think, the government seeks to teach the students WHAT to think. Rather than teaching the students the skills necessary to be responsible and successful individuals, they have taught us to seek the security of a good job. The government schools teach that obedience to authority is a virtue and that it is a sin to question authority. In the government indoctrination centers, creativity is discouraged and conformity is promoted.
While our Founders acknowledged the importance of education they delegated that authority to the local communities and not to the Federal government. The control of education by the Federal government violates the Constitution and has led to a nation of uniformed and uneducated voters who elect a new dictator every four years. While tyrants rise to power in other nations by force, in America we elect those who use the color of law to enslave us.
Eating an elephant would be a nearly impossible task for a hungry lion, but an army of millions of ants could easily devour the elephant in a few minutes. Our country has been taken over by a host of criminals who take their marching orders from the financial elite. They in turn control politics. Changing our elected officials is an exercise in futility as long as Goldman Sachs and the international banking cronies are calling the shots.
