It could never happen in the United States of America!

When I was a child, my parents told me about parents in the Soviet Union who had to re-teach their children when they returned each day from government indoctrination at school. As an adult I have studied this in greater detail and learned that, not only were the schools indoctrinating the children, but they were also demanding that the children inform the authorities if their parents taught them differently at home. Some children did this, thinking they were serving the greater good, causing their own parents to be hauled away and tortured. Many times they didn’t return.

Could this happen in the United States of America?

  1. I must say that for years, no decades, I really avoided politics. It’s just not inherently interesting to me. I wanted to research candidates, vote wisely, and have those other people take care of things.

    Big mistake. As you point out, our liberties are at risk and we all really need to wake up and take action.

    It’s the sad truth, Alison. I would much rather put my head in a good book or go on a picnic than spend my Saturday at a Central Committee meeting. But whether I take an interest in politics or not, it is going to take an interest in me.
