While it’s easy as a Freedom Loving American to point at the socio-fascism of the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) as the primary cause of our ever-accelerating descent toward becoming a post-Constitutional America, it’s been the failure of the Republican Establishment to stand in the gap on behalf of the American people and the Constitution that is sealing our fate.
I have written about how the education of our children has been hijacked by the Marxist movement and our public schools are now indoctrination centers. Children—from preschool and kindergarten all the way through college—are being indoctrinated to surrender their Constitutional rights for the betterment of the collective.
In another example of the Republican establishments betrayal, Paul Ryan has hooked up with Patty Murray —they’ve worked together before—to create one of three bills designed to take eliminate more of the Constitutional rights of students and, for good measure, parents as well.
The Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act (FEPA) (H.R. 4174), which would create a “unified evidence-building plan” for the entire federal government – in essence, a national database containing data from every federal agency on every citizen; and
The College Transparency Act (CTA) (H.R. 2434), which would overturn the Higher Education Act’s ban on a federal student unit-record system and establish a system of lifelong tracking of individuals by the federal government; and
The Student Privacy Protection Act (H.R. 3157), which would amend the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), 20 USC § 1232g, without restoring the FERPA privacy protections that were gutted by regulatory fiat in 2012.
We are told the objective of the Ryan/Murray bill (HR4174) is allegedly to gauge the effectiveness of federal agencies—talk about a contradiction of terms. When added to the other two bills, this package of Constitution-killing measures will supposedly help students make decisions regarding higher education.
In fact, this tragic legislation clearly lays the groundwork for the creation of 1984-styled Big Brother government using “a national database containing data from every federal agency on every citizen” and the establishment of “a system of lifelong tracking of individuals by the federal government.” Not only does this infringe on our rights of privacy, but history shows how this data will be used to take away even more individual rights and bring about even greater conformity to a collectivist agenda.
