Political Activism

Here is a quote about political activism I received. I think this should encourage us all to become involved this election!

"It seems to me that there is less of an all out assault on home
schooling,but rather a gradual erosion of parental rights with things like
mandatory early childhood education, etc.

The absolute best way to ensure that the right to parental freedom of
educational choice continues to the next generation is to make sure that
homeschoolers today are volunteering on campaigns and building those
relationships that will make a difference when legislation comes up.The
precursory "I'm a constituent, please don't vote for this bill" letter barely
matters when the Representative is getting all sorts of pressure from
educational organizations, PTA's, and school boards who most likely gave small
dollar amounts and passed out flyer's at a meeting for the candidate.

Honestly, freedom is a privilege and that comes with great
responsibility.What better way to teach your children about the privilege of
freedom,than to have them sweat a little to protect it?
"

POLITICAL ACTIVISM?! But according to Mr. Phillips, you must vote, but vote in this election and you are a fool. So... vote for who? *Snicker snicker*

I'm going to take a wild guess and say that politcal stuff will be one of the main things you post about ! ;)

I would agree with you 100%, Sarah. To wait until November 4th to see that your only option is the lesser of two evils is foolishness. If you want change you will need to actively fight for it, it's not going to happen on it's own.
