In response to a post this morning:
|Why is it that most people don’t understand basic civics? They think the majority should always win. That’s not what our Founding Fathers envisioned when they created our great society. If the majority always won, we wouldn’t need the Supreme Court, the rights of the minority would never be protected, Civil Rights legislation would never have passed, we would still have Jim Crow laws, and most likely we would be in a state of turmoil much like what is happening in Egypt and other countries in the world.Our country is not about 51%,
On this 4th of July it is appropriate to quote our Declaration of Independence ,
“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes;”
If Former State Senator Gloria Romero of California wants credit for this un-American legislation, fine I can live with that.
To paraphrase from the Declaration,
On this Independence Day it’s time to declare that our public education system will no longer be subjected to a long train of abuses and usurpations, under a design to reduce it under absolute Despotism, it is our right, it is our duty, to throw off such forces, and to provide new Guards for future security of our schools!
