Freedom of Choice

FREEDOM OF CHOICE IS NOT THE AMERICAN WAY ACCORDING TO AMERICAN LIBERALISM.  IN MY LAST YEAR AS A TEACHER MY SCHOOL DISTRICT WAS OPERATING UNDER "FREEDOM OF CHOICE" A SYSTEM THAT ALLOWED THE PARENT OF ANY STUDENT IN THE COUNTY TO SEND THEIR CHILDREN TO THE SCHOOL OF THEIR CHOICE.  THAT WOULD SEEM TO BE THE AMERICAN WAY, BUT LIBERAL PROGRESSIVES IN WASHINGTON DECIDED THAT THE SYSTEM WAS NOT PROVIDING THE DESIRED RESULTS AND A LAWSUIT PUT THAT SYSTEM INTO THE FEDERAL COURTS.  AND AS YOU MIGHT GUESS THE FEDERAL COURTS CONCLUDED THAT "FREEDOM OF CHOICE" WAS UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND UN AMERICAN.  MY OLD HIGH SCHOOL WAS TOLD TO ABANDON THAT AND FORCE MY STUDENTS TO GO TO A SCHOOL NOT OF THEIR CHOICE, AND DESPITE MY CONTRACT I WAS REASSIGNED TO ANOTHER SCHOOL.  I RESIGNED AND NEVER TAUGHT AGAIN.  THAT WAS MANY YEARS AGO, BUT I'M STILL MAD AS HELL AND WILL NEVER FORGET THE ARROGANCE OF  THE ALL-POWERFUL FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ATTEMPTS TO CONTROL MY LIFE.  GOVERNMENT IS NOT THE SOLUTION BUT THE PROBLEM!!!!

And for those who clicked on the "freedom of choice" link thinking it was a pro-abortion post and supported the murder of the unborn I really feel sorry for your  twisted logic---"freedom of choice" is not freedom to take a life!!!

FREEDOM OF CHOICE IS THE AMERICAN WAY!!!

I can so relate. There is freedom of anything until the liberals say it isn't so and that's usually who's doing the complaining. I'm so sorry this happened to you. I understand why you are still angry.

You are right on the money when you say that the government is the problem. They keep it that way for their power. We have way too much government in our lives. Way too much. They could also fix all that's wrong too, but they won't. It wouldn't suit their purpose.

Have a terrific day and weekend.. :)

The problem in Britain Ron is based upon class but not in the way you might imagine.
90% of pupils go to state schools which are mostly rubbish compared to the expensive private sector.

Now and again, despite being under local authority control, a school Headmaster and his/her staff make a difference and a particular school becomes a beacon of excellence. Over time aspirational parents sell their homes and relocate to that schools catchment area making a significant impact on local house prices. This reinforces the excellence of those particular schools because of the ethos of those parents and their support of it via the PTA &etc.


The lefty-liberals call these people "pushy parents". Rather than trying to improve the sink schools attended by pupils whose parents don't care they try every way they can to bring down the better schools because they show up and embarrass the usual ones.

Even the socialist Blair recognised this as a problem and now succesfull state schools are allowed to opt out of local authority control and become independent Acadamies, running their own budgets and deciding entry requirements.

Freedom of choice depends on who's choosing according to the libs. We Libs have choice and the rest of you live with what we choose for you.

Freedom is a fluid concept to the leftists. If it suits their needs to advance their agenda then freedom is good. If it does not, well then it's unconstitutional. They use it as it fits their needs.

It's no longer an option, we can no longer put up with our "FREEDOM" being destroyed in the name of "Free Dumb"... We will never be "FREE" until these "DUMB" perverts with their polital correctness and social justice are removed from power...

I just heard Chris Wallce say that Herman Cain doesn't have the name recognition as some of the others...

HERMAN CAIN, know it, recognize it, he's going to be your next president...

DICTATING terms of specifically how you live your life, where you sleep, how you sleep, what you eat, what you do with your free time, how you're monitored, how you're micromanaged, what to say, what you CAN'T say, what you shouldn't think, what you can't write. . .

THAT is the way of the Leftists!

Ron, I grow so tired of people not being allowed to live their lives as they please. Simple things that people have been doing for thousands a years with no problem, now require permits.
