He means history is barely taught in our schools anymore. My child has learned so much more from his own reading and watching "educational" historical TV then he will ever learn in lower education. I say lower education because we have a higher education history teacher in the house so itleast real history is available there. I cannot tell you what percentage of students ever enter those classes as they would be considered electives unless you were in certain college majors.

So basically an American can go through there whole life without learning history or even "modern" history such as the conflict in your own countries recent history. Let alone what it was about. The only way to learn that is to do your own research here in America.

This was replaced with standarized testing that focuses only on basic school work. Reading, Arithmetic.

I had already gathered that from previous posts..  He mentioned a liberal agenda took over.. So I asked -> .When you say a liberal agenda, what do you mean?  Why did they stop teaching it in its proper sense?
I was looking to know what he meant, to see were he is coming from?

Yeah. I dont attribute that to any Liberal agenda myself. But an Agenda. yeah I go for that.

Its the dumbing of Americans. Intentionally. Especially those of lesser means.

I cant speak of where he was coming from but from past conversations I will assume it is close to near the same as what Im saying.

Sorry for butting in.

People need to seriously be proactive in this department if the government is unwilling to teach our children the importance of the constitution. It feels like the government is trying to make it out to be a unimportant document, a relic of the past, which it really isn't at all. It is just as valuable as it was the day they sign it.

I agree completely with your sentiment, but the facts are that constitutional governance is an illusion.  Consider the Unpatriot Act or NDAA amendments as but 2 examples out of many.  Through the actions of all 3 branches of government, the Constitution is under steady attack.  That so many citizens support the GWOT shows why.

the liberal agenda... I'm trying to come up with a simple answer. It's not easy. Best thing to do is hang around these forums, pay attention and gather it all in. So you got me searching for a well written simply put answer for ya and I came across this website. I guess it's a book promo with excerpts. I read one excerpt "the madness of the liberal agenda" and it was pretty concise and about as descriptive as one could ask for. In fact, the whole link is worthy of its own thread.
Here is the link. Aside from the excerpt I read I can't say ATM how the rest of it is but if you want to know all about modern liberalism and what many dislike about it this looks like a one stop link.

To sum up.. Liberalism  is to take away your rights and tell the nations to do what they are told...Control them like a parent would with a child, and doing this by using incentives ..Am I on the right track ?

Honestly, I get that the Sherriff was telling the truth and he is clearly more than a little frustrated at not having the resources he needs to keep his town safe - but it has to be said, it wasn't only the good guys who heard what he said about not being able to respond to crimes effectively, just putting that out there.

Yep. Now this is about modern liberalism, aka progressivism. Liberal used to mean something different but let's stay on track.

Sure but the criminals I assume you speak of also just heard the sheriff tell the whole town it's a good time to get a gun and learn how to use it. I'd say disadvantage: criminals, advantage: the citizens.

Small towns. Not sure of the population of this sherrifs county generally have less crime unless there drug infested. In which case the criminals are likely stealing from each other.

Lets hope you are right but I have a doubt about average Joe's real capacity to perform under that kind of pressure, the criminal has the element of surprise on their side me thinks.

I agree with that. But still I don't think criminals see much of an advantage when the whole county has been called to arms. Chances are crimes will continue as they were but if just a few more citizens are a little more prepared and a little more alert I think it can only be a good thing.

I have a feeling, that IF in my own country, we had the rights to bare arms..The no good terrorists that used to burst into random homes and shoot innocent people dead  for political and religious reasons. These low life gunmen may have thought twice before doing so  IF they knew that every citizen was packed to the hilt with their own guns and were allowed to shoot anyone who is attempting to kill them and their loved ones   I have heard so many say this over here for years,  I wish I had a gun to protect my own family.. That was when the killings were really bad.
