    I just think if we want a smaller government we are going to have to fight for it. Electing "different" people are not enough when the system has already been corrupted. We should respect our country and our government based on their actions, not because we have been taught at government schools to do so.

    Something like that. There has to be a better way to make these people act as they should.

    Something needs to be done. Why on earth does a person running for a senate seat in Iowa needs 2.5 million dollars to run? Now I am not trying to call her in particular out, this is about all of them. I just picked up on her because I was watching highlights of her debate this morning so she stuck out.

    Summary
    Cycle 2014
    Total Raised $2,531,364.00
    Total Spent $1,422,320.00
    Cash On Hand $1,109,044.00
    Debt $665,462.00

    Those people are not giving her(or any of them) tens of thousands of dollars to break the mold and 'do the right thing'.

    Give the authority for curriculum back to the local community, and get the Fed's out of education.

    It will require political force. We are dealing with corruption. Asking them to do the right thing obviously won't work.

    You got that right. If we could get voters to vote out incumbents that would do it but voters have never been willing to do that. They view all of congress as corrupt except their guy. I think the force of law is required.

    for some reason people see the words different then i do, i see it this way.

    citizenship = be knowledgeable on your government, vote and take part in the governmental process.

    patriotism = the love of ones country, to take pride in it and to protect it from harm.

    respect for authority = respect for the law.

    respect for individual rights = this is self explanatory

    encourage or condone civil disorder, social strike or disregard of the law = this is self explanatory

    I encourage you to stage a bloodless coup. I can't and won't.

    I would expect this out of a Texas school district, not a Colorado one.
