As I watch parent after parent step up and oppose the radically racist and immoral propaganda that passes as an education in Loudoun County, I am reminded of the tyranny of the communist China.
Where your money is legally stolen and then used in government schools to indoctrinate children against their parents.
And it is not a matter of who sits on the school board that determines what your tax money funds, but rather the problem is that power exists.
Which is why we will work endlessly to pass School Choice and destroy the very power the Loudoun County School Board wields.
Government has no money; it only has that which they have taken by threat of force from the citizens.
Thomas Jefferson, our 3rd President, Governor of Virginia, and Author of the Declaration of Independence said this-
“To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”
Week after week, we have had parents and taxpayers come forth and demand that you stop indoctrinating our children. All of which is being done by taking their tax dollars.
This is the exact tyranny Jefferson wrote about and must stop. Liberty is always the answer. The liberty to choose what school your child attends and what school your money funds.
Stealing money from the pockets of every taxpayer in Loudoun County and then using that money for forced indoctrination of their children is theft and tyrannical immorality.
Critical Race Theory is only the latest fad to indoctrinate our youth. It is truly racist, as it is the worst form of collectivism to group people together by physical characteristics one cannot control, rather than, as Dr. King said, to judge people by the content of their character. You have to remember Common Core, Race to the Top, No Child left Untouched, I mean Behind, and a host of big government programs fostered by both Republicans and Democrats.
Theft of tax dollars, corruption, radicalization, immorality, and tyranny in our schools is simply because liberty has been shackled and government has replaced it. Government is the natural enemy of freedom and promotes mediocracy and degeneracy. Which is why the only answer is liberty and School Choice.
Politicians, the talking heads and the media will all focus on the fight over the power, all to gain votes and viewership. But this is actually detrimental to our schools, our children and our liberty.
It morally should be the stance of any Republican Candidate in 2021, for to argue otherwise is just to confirm they want to continue to use the government school system, for it is certainly not a public one, to indoctrinate children with their ideas.
It is really this simple- it is your children, it is your money and thus it can only morally be your choice.
The Virginia Constitutional Conservatives have teamed with the Virginia for Educational Freedom PAC to champion School Choice, and I invite you to join us at www.educationalfreedom.org
“Give me just one generation of youth, and I’ll transform the whole world.”
America’s Marxists, including those on the Loudoun County School Board, are apparently learning from the master.
June 30 (Reuters) – A Virginia man awaiting trial on criminal charges stemming from the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol recently procured a pipe bomb and other weapons, a violation of his parole, federal prosecutors said on Wednesday.
U.S. Justice Department lawyers said in a court filing that they discovered a “loaded M4 rifle” and a “partially assembled pipe bomb,” among other weapons, during a search of Thomas Robertson’s home in Ferrum, Virginia.
A judge released Robertson from jail while he awaits trial, prohibiting him from possessing firearms.
Prosecutors said in Wednesday’s court filing that the release order should be revoked immediately because Robertson violated the judge’s orders and “presents a danger to the community that no release conditions will adequately mitigate.”
LOCK HIM UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, how does the government know what he bought?
I’d like to comment on the comments about Mr. Anders. I don’t know him and I’ve never met him. I see his posts and have read his emails. His type of advocacy is very much needed. The Republican Party is our best hope, but it has drifted far to the Left. While it is still true on paper, the elected Rs are weak in practice. We need to constantly remind them how far from Republican principles their votes are. The local units need censure local Republicans that don’t vote according to Republican principles. Mr. Anders is to be commended for being voted out of his unit for being the thorn in weak Republicans’ sides. Yes, send your money to candidates because they are the immediate bulwark against socialism. In addition, we need to support advocates like Mr. Anders who will keep jabbing Republicans for being week and, over the long term, push them to the Right. Nothing was more demoralizing to the Republican grassroots than to have had a straight Republican state government under Bob McDonnell and see nothing get done (other than the largest tax hike in VA history). Contrast that to what the Democrats are doing with power right now. Similarly, Trump had a straight Republican federal government, and nothing happened for two years. Biden has power and is using it. We need to keep beating the hell out of Republicans and keep them in line.

Your push to fund religious schools with tax payer dollars is EXACTLY what TJ was warning against in this quote – not taxpayer funding of secular public schools, btw.
Eric, in your land of liberal delusion, you can’t see that forcing people to pay for your satanic public schools is wrong. If the government is going to force taxation (and, the power to tax is fundamentally the real problem) for education, then the money should be allocated EQUITABLY, which means that every child should be allotted the same amount of public money regardless of where they choose to be educated. As I read the Supreme Court tea leaves, we are headed in that direction. It will just take some time. In the meanwhile, I am forced to pay for your kids’ education because you aren’t man enough to pay for it yourself.
“. . . satanic schools . . . “?????????
You are one strange dude.
Secularism is a euphemism for satanism.
“Secularism is a euphemism for satanism.”
Christianity is a euphemism for theocracy.
“…and, the power to tax is fundamentally the real problem…”
Why do you hate the Constitution so, David…??
“As I read the Supreme Court tea leaves, we are headed in that direction.”
Can’t wait for my military voucher.
The outcry over diverting tax dollars to the school a parent chooses will be “But that will destroy public education” – free education that is NOT free. It is not free in the fiscal sense nor is it free of consequence. The argument will be put forth that government funded education is necessary, for several reasons.
The public benefits from a well-educated populace, which is true. The question not considered in that statement is: how well young people are educated in government funded institutions. Some do well, but there should be NO caveat to doing well. The “we need more money…we can’t attract good teachers” excuse is wearing thin. If parents of school aged children were allowed to collectively pool the tax dollars allocated by the state to teach their children, those parents could afford to hire a well-qualified person to teach their children. Taking the average cost of education per pupil statewide, each student could take with them over $12,000 dollars to be used to pay for a private educator. Just five students pooling that resource would be enough to pay a private educator more than the state average salary for teachers.
But where would enough teachers be found? That will not be a problem. How many would happily leave their position with the state to earn as much as a private tutor for as few as five children? How many would happily leave their state position if they could double their salary for teaching 10 children? Are they competent teachers? There should be no issue as to the competence of those choosing to leave a state position. But if this happens, what of those left in the public schools? The counties and state will have to figure out a way to lower costs.
The numbers outlined above prove that the costs of education are significantly inflated due to administrative and infrastructure costs. There are over 1.2 million students in Virginia schools. If the parents of every student where to collectively coop with four other parents to hire one qualified teacher, 1.2 million students would require 240,000 teachers. If each teacher worked two coop groups, there would need to be 120,000 teachers – a net gain in jobs for teachers. And those teachers would be earning twice the state average. Bottom line, finding teachers will not be a problem. Continuing with the Virginia Department of Education as it currently exists….that would be a problem. But if the way the VaDoE and city and county school districts currently operate IS the problem then aren’t we solving two problems with one solution? This is something the administrators of the VaDoE and city and county school districts will NEVER acknowledge.
What of the system of extracurricular activities we associate with our public schools? They don’t have to go away. The parents of students could, for a portion of their student’s credit, opt into state sponsored extracurricular activities. Currently, most of such activities are at least partially funded with donation/fund raiser dollars – independent of school budgets.
Probably the most used argument for funding public education is the idea that education is made better when everyone contributes to a single provider so that provider can offer the best options for student learning. Even if the public source argument is true, the question still persists of how well young people are educated via the public source. Within the public sphere, education should be politics neutral. If students know the political ideology of their teachers, then education is likely drifting towards indoctrination. Too many public-school teachers today feel they are in an autonomous “do not question me” position of authority because the administration of their school districts support the teaching of ideology. At least when the parents of five students are in charge of hiring the private instructor for their coop, they will be more invested in knowing what ideologies are being taught to their children. The instructor is accountable to those parents directly.
I have a number of retired friends who have tremendous technical backgrounds and have actually taught in private and university settings. Unfortunately, because of the requirements in the public schools for certifications, these individuals can’t teach in the public schools without additional courses which require time and money. If parents really wanted some great teachers, reach into the massive pool of well educated retirees.
It depends on the state. In California, there was a Troops to Teachers program but California has relatively low requirements for teaching in public schools. Most state require a useless teaching certification to keep qualified people out of their protected labor pool. One more instance of how unions are a detriment to society.
Next maybe there is more to do in politics besides electing the next Republican that will sell you out.
S. Chris Anders removed from the Jefferson County Republican Executive Committee because he committed “libelous and deceitful” actions against the party.
Bless your heart
It was unanimous.
Lots of pretty words the only thing forgotten was the non stop begging for money for him to waste. Donate funds directly to candidates why use a middleman? Ever think he has a path forward, nope me neither.
