The Revolution We Need

revolutionWe need a revolution if we are to survive as a people and as a nation.  While the changes in federal policy needed to undo the damage of leftism are high-profile presidential election issues, the real revolution needs to come at a different level of government and with a different purpose. 

What we are fighting, really, is fifty years of leftist indoctrination from education, information, and entertainment.  Until we fight back and win the battles at this level, we will continue with the drearily familiar mind control of the left over our lives.

We can win that battle, and we can begin the fight today – right now, if we want – through state governments.  Republican muscle in state governments is overwhelming.  Only eight states have Democrats controlling state government completely, while Republicans control a whopping twenty-three with 47% of the American population.  These governments control education, run  public television and radio, and fund research projects through university systems.

What conservative politicians – or any politicians who wishes voters to think he is conservative – ought to do right now is begin to fight at the state government level against the control by the left of public schools, colleges, and television, as well as state-sponsored research. 

Here is one example.  Oklahoma is a very conservative state, completely controlled by Republicans.  The energy industry faces dramatic economic losses because of the acceptance as “settled science” of the left’s global warming theory.  The Oklahoma School of Meteorology is the largest and best meteorology school in America and part of state government.  What if the Oklahoma Legislature appropriated $50 million to that school to research flaws in the theory of man-made global warming? 

The research topic relates to vital economic and governmental issues, and it is part of science to challenge orthodoxy and critique methods and data.  It is hard to imagine any intellectually serious objection to a critical examination of prevailing scientific orthodoxies.  (Indeed, if no serious criticism is allowed, then why are taxpayers funding research in this area?)

There are other conservative states like Idaho, Louisiana, Montana, and Mississippi located in vital glacial areas or on lowland gulf regions.  Their universities could conduct their own research projects to critically examine all aspects of the theory and advocacy of man-made global warming.

What if research studies from several respected colleges (or research centers created by states to study global warming) determined that man-made global warming is not “settled science,” that there is a pernicious groupthink in academia about global warming, that data has been altered, and that there may be global cooling or global warming uncaused by man?  The impact would be felt around the world.

    It’s more than 50 years of leftist destruction. Try more than 100 years.

    The beginning of the USA downfall started in 1913 with Woodrow Wilson ( whom we can thank Teddy Roosevelt for ).

    1913 saw the creation of the absolutely unconstitutional Federal Reserve and the absolutely unconstitutional Income Tax.

    More aggravatingly, slick Woody took the USA in 1917 To World War One for no other reason than to save the Morgan Bank in New York City.

    This article touches on what is actually a huge problem – the leftist indoctrination at universities. My daughter and my cousin both attended two different universities in the past few years. As part of their studies they were required to take one course in political science. Both of them are indoctrinated past the point of being brainwashed. They are 101% convinced that left of center government is perfect in every way, and right of center government is thoroughly despicable in every possible way. They are so closed minded that any reasonable discussion is not even possible. Anything that I say is simple-minded stupidity and what they say is educated fact.

    I’m not a fan of Donald trump [b]whatsoever[/b] but he has aptly demonstrated a leadership quality that the majority of Americans desperately want. He is not afraid to tell the conjoined forces of the mainstream [b]media[/b], Hollywood [b]popular culture[/b], and leftist [b]academia[/b] to just shove it.

    For years, conservatives and even moderates have assumed that they must build their arguments [u]within the prescribed constraints[/u] of the leftist triad of media, pop-culture and academia. The left has thus set the rules of discussion [u]and[/u] the language that may be used. The next successful leader of the [b]center-conservative majority[/b] must overtly refuse to accept the premises set by the left and then have the toughness and temperament to stand behind that language. Americans [u]will[/u] reward this kind of intellectual honesty and bravery.

    Unfortunately, I believe Trump and Obama have something in common. Both are (or were) blank slates upon which too many American people project their most noble aspirations, only to later be deceived and disappointed. America has before it the opportunity to finally replace the Socialist-in-Chief with a true conservative and a majority Congress. I sure hope we don’t get fooled again…

    GR82DRV, I couldn’t agree more . If the country goes left again they deserve what they just got . Good luck .
    Donald Trump and Ted Cruz may be a little to honest and direct for the PC liberals and Donald will no doubt pay a reverse discrimination price .
    Half the citizens probably prefer to be lied to again so the Democrats could run a Chimp and do OK .

    It no longer matters if it’s “settled science ” or not, the funding horse is out of the barn . The science isn’t settled it’s now irrelevant .
