I agree. I preach it all the time to libs in the office and my family. But I'm so skeptical of human nature that I'm not getting my hopes up. Obama just spent over 5 trillion and libs still worship him like he is JC #2.

I do not disagree.

It is my belief the biggest change that could be made with the biggest immediate impact would be making eduction voucher driven.

I think controlling the education system is such a big boon to liberalism.

Not merely that they are indoctrinating the next generation, but it puts folks in a subordinate position to an entire system that is run by uberlibs.

Were the ability to choose schools there, I think a great many would find more conservative outlets for their children's educations. That would lead them to many meetings that would no longer skew liberal -- that would lead them to children that would no longer expect parents to largely support teachers that are teaching a liberal curriculum and parents often subjugating their own beliefs because their children doing well is more important to them than some petty indoctrination.

The acceptance of this indoctrination leads them to accept a lot in other venues they would find objectionable. Because immersion is an effective technique to making you accept the unacceptable.

There is a reason there is a large home school movement, and a lot of parents paying twice for education, once through taxes and a second time because they have to refuse the education that they paid for and buy one they find acceptable(I know I did that)

I think education reform could be a huge game changer. Making a far bigger change on societal level than the mere obvious of actual educating children.
