I missed two. I did however have civics minded teachers when I was in school. They were great. Much of my patriotic views are attributed to my parents, and many of the teachers I was fortunate enough to have had.

 Hey Sarge,we did better than the "college educators".   But then again maybe that ain't saying much.

Probably better than most Democratic voters, and most politicians as well. So that's something to hang your hats on guys. I am proud of you.

Here's a good question.... How many actually know what civics means? How many of the young people will say a Honda car model?
 
Another good one.... How many actually give a damn?

Just go ask a high school student. My granddaughter and I had this conversation a few weeks ago. I asked if she learned anything in Civics class. Answer Whats that, We didn't have that class. I asked what about history? answer Who wants to know about all those old people. They aren't around anymore. What they did does not apply to todays world.
 The thing is she is an A student. Graduated high School with a 4. GPA. The schools today are lacking a lot. Granted she can program the time on my old VCR.

Probably taught that the Constitution is a living document too. Shame, damned shame. It is no wonder that the country is going to Hell in a hand basket.

Oh my.... A Presidential candidate running on common sense?
Things like no more piggy backing Bills with special incentives.
No more entitlement programs at the Federal level.
No more punishment and reward on corporate structures.
No more progressive taxation.
No more income taxes at a Federal level.
No more congress voting for their pay raises.
No more lifetime severance for representatives that are voted out of office.
Government employees will make no more than their civilian counterparts.
And several more policies that need addressing.
You think I'd get even a single vote?

Thanks for that... The problem is funding. The policies that I would run on would make me a serious target for those that want omnipotent power.

Just my simple view that there is no right wing in this country. You are either right Constutionally or you are wrong. Progressives, and Liberals (socialists) are nothing more than degrees of communistic thought, and policies. They have made mainstream thought to be that Moderates are in the middle and the constitutionally correct are right wing radical.
