While there is no denying that liberalism has created a mountain of very significant problems for the United States, the radicalization of that ideology (culminating with the election of a devout marxist by their party) has resulted in some very positive trends in America. First, we saw the rise of the Tea Party in response to the extremism of the Obama Administration. This movement to return to constitutional government, true conservative principles, and rid the GOP of liberals has had a profound positive effect on America. Both the House and the Senate were turned over to conservatives during the Obama Administration. A RINO Speaker of the House (John Boehner) was run off and replaced with an actual conservative. Very liberal states like Wisconsin and Michigan were turned over to conservatives. We have seen a drastic reduction in Planned Parenthood facilities throughout the U.S. We have seen an increase in "Right to Work" laws. The American people unilaterally rejected the insanity of Target's absurdity and is now boycotting them. North Carolina restored sanity to America and lead the way for other states to follow with HB2.

But perhaps there is no better metric for positive trends in Americs than the ever increasing movement towards home schooling. Not only does it result in an exponentially better educated generation of students, but it also eliminates the indoctrination efforts by the left and it is an indication that the American people recognize the inability of government to effectively handle even simple tasks when they step outside of their Constitutional responsibilities. When liberal Hollywood is not only homeschooling their own children, but also writing books about it and doing speaking engagements, it's a sure sign that homeschooling is becoming more prevalent through out the country. Few things are better for America than this particular growing trend. Let's hope it continues.

I agree for once. There is a promising trend...
We will have either Hillary Rodham Clinton or one of her chief campaign contributors as President in November.


It looks like the GOP is finally ready to accept reality and prohibit those on the no-fly list from buying as many guns as their ISIS sponsors can afford

It looks like the attempts to defund Obamacare are no longer in fashion; they haven't done that in months.

It appears that the GOP isn't going to try to shut down the government again until HRC takes over.

She looks primed to appoint 4-5 justices to the Supreme Court thanks to GOP stalling on Obama's nomination

The Democrats are going to take back the Senate and restore some sanity.

EPA regulations will be strengthened

Business regs will be strengthened

Happy days are here again!!!

America is still full of potential. I'm afraid that's about as optimistic as I can be.

Sure. Home schooling is great. There is no reason for a 7 year old girl to know how to recognize all the letters of the alphabet or to count change. After all, she is just going to become a mother at 13, and she will be too busy raising kids and doing laundry to worry about needing any education. Teaching her misunderstood Bible verses and to hate libruls is enough.

Vintage Bulldog ignorance. Just out of curiosity - do you ever know about a subject before commenting on it?

Bwahahaha! We're supposed to believe that your excited about Donald Trump being president? You've have had melt down after melt down about him in other threads. What is with your disingenuous claims and false bravado? Just attempting to be a troll? Desperate for my attention again? :eusa_doh:

By the way - Trump is adamant that the biggest failed legislation in U.S. history - Obamacare - will be repealed once he is in office. So you just contradicted your own positions (as usual) :lol:

Well...I think it's important to teach children to hate ignorance, racism, socialism, failure, and violence. The core values of the liberal ideology.

I don't think she can pronounce or acknowledge "TRUMP 2016". Common feature among the liberals:


The EPA and business regulations will be decreased to sensible (and smart) levels, and prosperity returned to America. Regressive liberal's worst fear is to see prosperous America.

Just what we need. A bunch of home schooled freaks that are socially clueless .
Once again the uninformed libtards display their extraordinary ignorance. Why do you people speak like experts on topics you literally know nothing about. Here are the facts you ignorant libtard (and I have citations to back it up).

“The old wives’ tale spread by the teachers’ unions (who are afraid of competition) is that homeschoolers are not “socialized.” Well, the facts are in. Homeschoolers are almost twice as involved in their local community or church as public school students, and almost three times as involved in politics.”

How about next time you just keep your mouth shut when you don't know what you're talking about? That's what normal, rational people do anyway.

Sums up your values pretty nicely.

OMG...I can't thank you enough for posting that. It's perfectly summarizes that fragile psyche of the ignorant liberal. Cornhole is definitely a "safe space" libtard... :lol:

Yes...teach my children to hate liberals and their core values (ignorance, racism, socialism, failure, and violence) absolutely sums up my values.

I have personal knowledge on this subject. Home schooling would be fine if there was a requirement for the children to actually be taught some of what they need to know to be functioning adults, but there is not. Often home school parents are just too lazy to get their kids off to school and are only marginally literate themselves. The children are doomed to a wasted life because of lack of education.

You think it's more important for children to be anti-liberal than it is for them to have an education required to survive and prosper in today's world?

OMG....your ignorance is not only astounding....but it knows no bounds. For starters - who gets to decide for society what a child (and I quote) "actually needs to be taught to know how to be functioning adults"? You - the undisputed king of ignorance? You don't need to decide for anyone else's children what they do or do not need to know. You can't even function on a message board without embarrassing yourself.

Second, the state requirements for homeschooling are exactly the same as they are for public schooling. Same materials. Same standardized testing. Same requirements. The fact that you don't even know that much shows that you have no business even commenting on this topic.

Third and finally - here are the facts that really shows how much you don't know:

A recent study shows that homeschooled kids score almost twice as high on exams as public school students. Other studies show that homeschooled kids score 72 points higher than the national average on SAT exams. Homeschoolers are more likely to attend college, are more likely to graduate, and have higher college GPAs (Grade Point Averages) than other students

Gee bulldog....higher GPA's? 72 points higher on SAT exams? Sounds to me like they are learning everything they need and then some. Also sounds to me like you don't have a clue what you are talking about. But...that is typical for you. Incidentally, Wayne Allyn Root's daughter Dakota turned down Yale to attend Harvard. Yeah - just one of many homeschooled students who reject offers from Ivy League schools because they are so well educated. Oops.... Just a word of advice - you might want to quit now on this issue. I can go all day with volumes and volumes of data. All of it points to exponentially better results. Higher test scores. Higher GPA's. More involved in their communities. You'll just look like a bigger fool the more you try to go with your false narrative.

If they are anti-liberal....they will survive and prosper in the world. Liberalism is the creed of failure. If you reject failure and it's core values (racism, socialism, sloth, selfishness, greed, etc) you'll do very well in life.

There are only three requirements to homeschool in Texas:
  • The instruction must be bona fide (i.e., not a sham).
  • The curriculum must be in visual form (e.g., books, workbooks, video monitor).
  • The curriculum must include the five basic subjects of reading, spelling, grammar, mathematics, and good citizenship.
Texas Homeschool Laws » Texas Unschoolers
www.texasunschoolers.com/resources/texas-homeschool-laws

There are no required inspections of the curriculum. The parent's are responsible for determining if the few requirements listed are met. There is no agency assigned that task. There are no required tests to determine the level or even the existence of any education. The test scores you reference only represent the very few who actually take college entrance exams. The vast majority never intend to attend college, and are not subject to those tests.
