    Only a brainwashed authoritarian would be opposed to learning an alternative POV.

    I'm with the students on this one. Complete bs on the part of that school board. No curriculum should be biased or censored, just straight facts.

    I had the fortune of studying in both Canada and the US.

    In one I learned that no one won the war of 1812, that the major battle, New Orleans was fought after the peace treaty was signed.

    In the other, I learned that John Paul Jones was the greatest naval commander in the world, that the English were still as evil as they were in 1776 and that America won.


    I'm with the students too.

    The best misconception is that the revolutionaries were outnumbered by the British when in reality the revolutionaries outnumbered the British...

    I have a **** ton of historical "misconceptions."

    Ideas should never be protested, unless they're taught as fact.

    Don't EVER stop reading anything.

    Ideas cannot be suppressed....ideas are what America is born from, Canada, the US and Mexico all share the same beginning with that idea that men should live free.

    No good idea can be suppressed as thinking is the ultimate form of freedom; there are those who will always try to control HOW people think, and this is just another example of that.

    When I was in Jr High, they gave us an assignment to write an essay on "Better dead than Red." Me and another kid went the other way, citing Ghandi in his case..he was smarter than me.

    We both got "E's".

    You know, they think they won, but that idea, that thinking, that philosophy became hardened, perhaps because of that police state attitude. I believe that, and what I saw on the campuses a few years later that led me into journalism, where you cannot be silenced.

    Education should be about new ideas and a place to express them, not sausage factories turning out zombie-like morons who question nothing.

    I now follow the words of the world's most famous carpenter, "test everything, you will have many false prophets among you" a favorite of Gahndi. Evil triumphs whenever it can hide.

    Absolutely true. If your Nation does good things, it will have the patriotic support of its' citizens. Propaganda and enforced patriotism were the foundation of the old USSR and now the attitude is rampant throughout the US gov't. We've got to find some good guys.

    Why are conservatives trying to teach respect of authority and patriotism when they are anti government?

    I have noticed that they obey and follow authority and government leadership when it's conservative. For example, I remember Fox News screaming at Bush Admin protestors as being "unAmerican." But if you're antigovernment or small government, shouldn't you be critical of all forms of government? It doesn't make sense to me.

    I suspect the patriotism crap they hope to teach is anti-immigrant or "real America" indoctrination too. BS.
