When one nation takes over another, that second nation is considered "occupied." That's currently the situation of We the People. We are occupied by the Government of America. An efficient parasite weakens and sucks blood from its host, but doesn't quite kill it. The Government of America has become a parasite on the body of the People of America.
And so this is why a thoughtful study of our founding documents is actively discouraged in government schools. Studying these documents puts students in opposition with the occupying force. The Declaration is considered inflammatory because students might recognize that the whole purpose of it was to put limitations on the Government, not to feed the beast.
Yet gullible parents continue to send their children into the lair of the beast. After all, "all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed."
As we enjoy barbecues and fireworks on this Independence Day, let us ask ourselves whether we remain worthy of the gift of freedom our founders gave us. We will never regain our once-great status as a nation until Occupied America is freed. To that end we must pledge "our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor."
Hi, it's just me, John Kubicek, otherwise known as johnny2k. There are a few things that we need to discuss regarding this outstanding article by Patrice Lewis.
Who could argue with what Patrice writes in this commentary? As one reader, Deb Ross Mueller, says in her comment (the first one written for this column), "There's really nothing to say. Patrice is absolutely, completely, totally right. Only an ignoramus, a fool or a liar would disagree with her." I have to say that I must agree with Deb, being that in the last 24 hours, it has been difficult to find a way to expound on this outstanding column.
Patrice hit it on the nose by telling us how the schools weren't teaching the kids about our Declaration of Independence, and why they aren't. As I was saying, I found it difficult to find something to expound on with this column. While taking some more time to mull it over, I decided to watch the rest of Glenn Beck's last Fox News broadcast that I had recorded. That is when it hit me. There is actually something else that is important to consider!
When you read this column by Patrice, you will find some compelling elements that will illustrate the government's diabolical plan to dumb down the people's knowledge of America's founding documents, and it has been succeeding. There is definitely evidence that supports the argument that the government has a motive. If We the People don't know about the principles that this country was founded on, we would be apathetic about the gradual decay of our freedom. I think Obama called it "transformation."
What Glenn Beck's closing statements on June 30, 2011 reminded me of is that solving the problem is going to have to be up to us, We the People. We are pretty much stuck with a public indoctrination - sorry, I mean school - system, for now. Not every one can homeschool or send their kids to private schools. It seems that it is going to be up to us to educate ourselves, our children, and each other, at least for now. So, I guess that will have to mean making some sacrifices, to take time past the work and school day to teach your children what you believe that they need to know. It is truly a burden that we must be willing to bare in order to keep our freedom. We must rely on ourselves and each other in order to make this happen.
And in the mean time, there was a Harvard study that says that parades and fireworks for the Independence Day celebrations is just a bunch of Republican propaganda! I can not make that up, folks! I could prove it with video evidence, but I have something even better to show you for now. This is just part of what we are doing, and the social networks like Facebook are great tools to share INFORMATION.
Really, we can have a good laugh about the Harvard scholars that feel our celebration of freedom is just another right-wing mind-control plot... So, here's some great right-wing propaganda for you! Please enjoy the following video, and know that I am appealing to your emotions, as in the Patriotic Spirit, and why we love our freedom. I'm just sayin'...

I have a confession to make. Until I was an adult – as in, until a few years ago – I never completely read the Declaration of Independence.
Oh sure, I was familiar with the basics. I knew what it said … sort of. But somehow I just never got around to reading it.
This isn't surprising. I am, after all, a public skool gradjuate. And public schools, as everyone knows, hardly go around emphasizing such things.
But now that I'm a homeschooling mom, I was darned if my kids were going to be as ignorant as I was. Our children have grown up knowing America is unique due to its God-given freedoms. But now that our girls are teens, it was time to launch them into a serious study of the founding documents so they can understand just what those documents mean – and what they cost.
About this time a gentleman named Bruce Gordon approached me about advertising his self-published book on my blog. We told him we would have to review it first. When the book arrived, I was astounded at its clear and thorough coverage of the roots of our country's foundation, as well as its excellent study aids. It was the civics guide I was looking for.
So our girls have embarked on a comprehensive study, starting with the Declaration of Independence. They are memorizing key portions so that they always have the wording at their fingertips. Unlike me, I don't want them growing up ignorant about the importance of this document.
And the words therein are almost as beautiful and magnificent as the words in the Bible.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. …
Doesn't this just send chills down your spine?
Over the past two months, we have analyzed the Declaration line by line, word by word. The power and majesty of its language ring as clear and strong today as it did 235 years ago.

And because of this – that the Declaration is still applicable today – it is held in contempt and roundly despised by those in power, because our government officials know damned good and well they have equaled or even exceeded the atrocities of George III.
This explains, of course, why I was never taught the founding documents as a student. Public schools are agents of the United States government. And that government is no longer recognizable as the limited entity it was meant to be.
