No, but most of my learning is from reading on my own, not merely from "government school", and a high school education, whether "government" or private is not much of anything anyway compared to advanced learners.Nope, and I'd venture that given how low the level of education is, that "school grads" who don't do any additional reading or learning on their own won't know much of anything one way or another.There isn't a such thing as "government school" - the Founders themselves came from "government" schools by that definition, given that they were originally British citizens under a monarchy, I believe their schools were funded by the "state", not entirely privately funded (which is a false dictomy anyway - since private schools are eligible to receive public funding, and vice versa with government schools).Sooo....you're a government school grad, huh?
Let's try again....
“Rather than the people being governed by elected representatives, the three branches, “Woodrow Wilson gave the administrative state its rationale: he held that government by nonpartisan, public-spirited, Ivy League–trained experts making rules in such agencies as the Federal Trade Commission or the Interstate Commerce Commission would be infinitely wiser, more efficient, and more responsive to changing conditions and the evolving spirit of the age than the Framers’ government of limited and separated powers, a clockwork relic in the electricity age.
….ever since the New Deal supersized Wilson’s system, administrative agencies have multiplied like the Sorcerer’s Apprentice’s brooms, so that federal regulations now spill out of 240 volumes—and not only overregulated businessmen, infrastructure planners, and a few law professors, but also Supreme Court justices, have begun to wonder by what legitimate authority unelected bureaucrats can make rules like a legislature, carry them out like an executive, and adjudicate and punish infractions of them like a judiciary, usurping powers that the Constitution places solely in the Congress, the president, and the courts, with no two powers concentrated in the same hands.” The Court Moves Right

2. Government school grads have been totally weaned away from the Founder’s view that free citizens elect….vote into office….those who rule them. Hence, the indoctrinated deny that they are the sheep being herded by unelected bureaucrats, diplomats, career government workers who are in charge….the Deep State.
And the Deep State….which clearly exists….is fighting to prove that the great unwashed must be chastised for electing a candidate not of their choosing…..giving us, first Russiagate, and now Ukrainegate.
Now...if you are serious about gaining the education that government school deprived you of....begin reading

The Birth of the Administrative State: Where It Came From and What It Means for Limited Government
America was intended to be "free" in terms of its enumerated rights, not an anarchy or "direct democracy", which seems to be what you're advocating; citizens are still subordinate to the Common Law or state law (which affects them in day to day life moreso than the federal government does anyway) - in an anarchy, there would be no "rights" anyway nor any means of enforcing them, at least none in practice, even if in theory. So yes, representatives were mean to have some margin of "power" over the average person, at least within the limits and constraints of the law and morality - people who are corrupt being in positions of power is as old as human nature - it doesn't not prove a "deep state" conspiracy, or anything that at odds with human nature, no.
So no, most of what you imagine your rights to be are fictional, or faith-based sentiments, not in the Constitution, nor the law, nor common sense - or how the law actually works in practice, as opposed to ignorant theory.
If you want "freedom" of that variety, you'll have to go take it by force, and best of luck to you on that. You probably don't even know your states' law, or the domain of power it has over you in day-to-day life, but merely take it for granted.
"There isn't a such thing as "government school"
And yet you just proved you are a victim thereof.
You'd like to compare educational resumes?
So you don't wish to see which of us has the greater depth of learning.
First wise thing you've said.
I once attempted to list all of the books I have read....studied....and the list become so long I gave it up.
At the most succinct, America was founded on capitalism and religion, and Jefferson, Madison and Adams.
Government school teaches a heritage of communism an atheism...based on Rousseau, Hegel and Marx.
You might begin learning from here.
