Last July, Barack Obama told his favorite Hispanic group, the National Council of La Raza, that he knew “some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own.” He admitted that the idea was “very tempting.” Then he added, “But that’s not how — that’s not how our system works.”

But Obama apparently thinks the system works that way now. A few days ago, his administration issued  a new immigration policy similar to the DREAM that he could not get through Congress.

Since this is an election year, we can expect to hear a lot of words — and the meaning of those words is not always clear. So it may be helpful to have a glossary of political terms.

Such political terms include "fairness," "racism," "compassion," "mean-spirited," "greedy," and "the hungry." What do politicians means by these terms? Why are these terms so useful politically?

Outright lies and half-truths are the stock in trade of many politicians and political publications, and such deception is on display in the National Review's coverage of a Romney campaign appearance.

What is education all about? In my view, the purpose of education is to pass on to the next generation the knowledge, wisdom, and moral values of the present generation. Knowledge includes history, geography, science, economics, mathematics, etc. Wisdom entails reading the Bible, which is the Judeo-Christian source of what is wise and truthful. Moral values are based on belief in God and His Ten Commandments. Practically none of this is taught in the atheist public schools.

So it is left to Christian homeschoolers and private schools to carry forth our Judeo-Christian civilization.

Learning how to restore our constitutional Republic should be the central object of any homeschool curriculum.

 

 

Students should be taught to confront the main problems that plague the country in the 21st-century: historical ignorance, religious ignorance, and a lack of thinking skills.
