To Save America, We Must Abolish the United States




The Christmas Conspiracy!
Federal Issues

The 108th Congress should

  • identify and list all federal education programs;
  • abolish all programs and agencies (including the Department of Education) not provided for by the Constitution; and
  • return education to the state, local, and family level.

The most important thing any candidate can say about education is to come out strongly in defense of the separation of school and state. Bureaucrats do not educate children as well as parents. Schools do better the more they resemble a family and the less they resemble a government institution.

America's Organic Law on Public Schools

If most politicians ignore the irreplaceable role played by families in education, they seem hell-bent on ignoring the most fundamental purpose of schools: to teach religion and morality.

Politicians take an oath which the U.S. Supreme Court has said indicates an affirmation of America's "organic law." One part of America's Organic Law makes a stunning declaration about the purpose of education. In his concurring opinion in Engel v. Vitale, 370 US 421 at 443, the case which removed prayer from public schools, Justice Douglas admitted:

Religion was once deemed to be a function of the public school system. The Northwest Ordinance, which antedated the First Amendment, provided in Article III that 
Religion, morality, and knowledge 
being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, 
and the means of education shall forever be encouraged

Those who try to keep religion and morality separated from education violate their oath of office. Not a single person who signed the Constitution believed that education could or should be "secular" and that public schools should not teach "religion, morality and knowledge." Nor should we.

Because education is intensely personal and inescapably value-laden, government coercion is inappropriate. Atheists should not be taxed to provide Christian education, and Christians should not be taxed to provide secular education.

After federal intervention in education is eliminated, we should work for the complete abolition of government interference in education at state and local levels. Members of The Christmas Conspiracy support the separation of school and state.
