    During the first part of his farewell speech to Congress, Rep. Ron Paul suggested that the homeschooling movement would play a "revolutionary" role in restoring limited government.

    "Expect the rapidly expanding homeschool movement to play a significant role in the revolutionary forms needed to rebuild a free society with constitutional protections," he said. "We cannot expect a federal government controlled school system to provide the intellectual ammunition to combat the dangerous growth of government that threatens our liberties."

    There is no doubt that when it came to Constitutional government, energy, education, etc. - Ron Paul was a freaking genius. It's too bad he was a complete and total quack on foreign policy and defense, because he would have made one hell of a president on those other items.

    Hooray for a generation of insecure, peer-pressure-driven sheep who are destroying society.

    Hooray for substituting education for indoctrination and the death of critical thinking. Oh, and in turn, a free society.

    Wait a minute. Aren't most of those parents homeschooling their kids graduates of the same public school system y'all say is failing its students?

    If the school system failed them, how on earth are they to teach their kids?

    Or...if they're qualified to teach their kids at home, doesn't that mean the public schools were successful?

    I know this is going to stun liberals, but....... DID YOU KNOW YOU CAN ACTUALLY LEARN WITHOUT AND/OR AFTER PUBLIC SCHOOL?!?! Really! It can be done! It has been done!

    That's the thing with dumbocrats - if the book didn't tell them something, they have no idea what to do.

    You don't say? Well....I never!

    Are you convinced that EVERY parent who wants to homeschool is capable? Why?

    I'm not, I've watched intelligent middle school kids school teachers on a DAILY basis...
