Ron Paul on MSNBC: Homeschooling is a better alternative

This week alone, Glenn has shared two disturbing cases of the Bill of Rights literally being re-written in our children’s textbooks. An AP U.S. history textbook used in Denton, Texas defined the Second Amendment as “The people have the right to keep and bear arms in a state militia.” Meanwhile, students in Simpsonville, South Carolina were using a textbook that combined the Second and Third Amendments into one singular sentence: “The Second and Third Amendments — grant citizens the right to bear arms as members of a militia of citizen-soldiers and prevent the government from housing troops in private homes in peacetime.”

Cases like those, combined with ongoing concerns about the new Common Core standards, have lead many to question the state of education in America. Glenn has been vocal about his support and experience with homeschooling, and now former Senator Ron Paul has been speaking out about the benefits of homeschool.

“Ron Paul has a new mission in life. And amen, amen, amen,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “It is to get 20 or 25 percent of the population to be homeschooled. And you would not believe the response of the people on MSNBC in this interview. Listen to this interview with Ron Paul.”

RON PAUL: I want people to be able to home school their children. Not everybody is, this is designed to pick out the leaders who want to, and maybe 20 percent might be interested in doing this. But they would at least see, these would be leaders who then would be talking about running for Congress and understand why the Federal Reserve is a problem today. We have been conditioned, in all our schools, that it's good to have a very, very robust foreign policy, to be involved in all these countries, we've been taught the Federal Reserve is sacred except for the last few years people are questioning the Federal Reserve. We've been taught deficits are good. Everyone has been taught one of our greatest presidents was Woodrow Wilson, but if you're liberal or conservative, if you look at Woodrow Wilson, he was, he violently abused our civil liberties. He was the one that told us we had to march around the world. He was the one that changed our foreign policy. And I'd like to show that some of our presidents, the only great president have been warmongers and maybe people who argued for negotiations might be a better president. So it will be a different approach. But it will be up front. It will be the freedom philosophy. It will be based on individual freedom and not a collectivist approach.

“Can you imagine the perplexing expressions on the faces of the people at MSMBC right now,” Pat asked.

There are definitely some issues with Paul’s reasoning when it comes to the curriculum he proposes, but Glenn sees an even greater problem.

“It's not a chance this is going to happen. Only because once this kind of thinking starts to take real root, and it already is, the federal government has got to shut homeschoolers down,” Glenn explained. “They have to because you will have too many free thinkers out there.”

“Yeah, there's other problems with this though, too, Glenn,” Pat said. “Obviously. You're ignoring them.”

“I know,” Glenn said. “MSNBC is about to get to them. Thank goodness they're there.

COMMENTATOR: 20 percent of children being homeschooled that's going to mean a vast drop in the number of women in the work force because it's largely women who are doing the homeschooling. A lot of women can't afford to give up their jobs. A lot of families can't afford that and do we actually wants to be encouraging women not to take part of the work force because we know how valuable that diversity is. I'm just, I'm concerned about advocating homeschooling on this level when women are having such a hard time already, staying in the work force.

RON PAUL: Of course those are the problems created by what I'm trying to correct because they have to be in the work force and they have to work and not take care of kids because of the system that we have, because it's survival for them. So you are, you're absolutely right, there isn't a choice.

“Stop for a second,” Glenn said. “Only MSNBC could come up with something this insane. So excuse me. We would be hurting women because we would be encouraging them to stay home with their kids? Because of the diversity in the work place, that's more important than having mom at home, teaching her own children.?

“Oh, diversity in the workplace is way more important than that,” Pat quipped. “Ron's wrong about that – they're not absolutely right. Like Stu said, there's many women already – more than 20 percent already at home and could do this. Do they want to? I don't know. I don't know. That's up to them.

“You have to want to do it,” Glenn reiterated.

“You really do. Not everybody is equipped to do that and I get that fully,” Pat concluded. “But it would be a good thing for your kids and for America. I mean, whether it's the man or the woman, one parent in the home, bringing up the kids, would be a good thing. Hey, I don't know how we've lost sight of that.”

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

Do YOU think institutions should bring back COVID-era mandates if cases increase? Let us know your thoughts HERE.

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752

3. Nebraska

Population: 1,972,292

4. West Virginia

Population: 1,764,786

5. Hawaii

Population: 1,433,238

6. New Hampshire

Population: 1,402,957

7. Maine

Population: 1,393,442

8. Montana

Population: 1,139,507

9. Rhode Island

POLL: Should the Government control the future of AI?

Earlier this week, tech titans, lawmakers, and union leaders met on Capitol Hill to discuss the future of AI regulation. The three-hour meeting boasted an impressive roster of tech leaders including, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, and others, along with more than 60 US Senators.

The meeting was closed to the public, so what was exactly discussed is unknown. However, what we do know is that a majority of the CEOs support AI regulation, the most vocal of which is Elon Musk. During the meeting, Musk called AI "a double-edged sword" and strongly pushed for regulation in the interest of public safety.

A majority of the CEOs support AI regulation.

Many other related issues were discussed, including the disruption AI has caused to the job market. As Glenn has discussed on his program, the potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real, and many have already felt the effects. From taxi drivers to Hollywood actors and writers, AI's presence can be felt everywhere and lawmakers are unsure how to respond.

The potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real.

Ultimately, the meeting's conclusion was less than decisive, with several Senators making comments to the tune of "we need more time before we act." The White House is expected to release an executive order regarding AI regulation by the end of the year. But now it's YOUR turn to tell us what YOU think needs to be done!

Should A.I. be regulated?

Can the government be trusted with the power to regulate A.I.? 

Can Silicon Valley be trusted to regulate AI? 

Should AI development be slowed for safety, despite its potential advantages?

If a job can be done cheaper and better by AI, should it be taken away from a human?

Do you feel that your job is threatened by AI?
