Ron Paul home school curricula.

I'm always leery about anything being sold before it's written.

Here's the link to the curricula:

www.ronpaulcurriculum.com/

And here's a link to an article one of my favorite libertarians linked to for me--detailing why we should all be very VERY afraid of the dominionist dude who is ghostwriting this BS:

blog.skepticallibertarian.com/2013/04/08/gary-north-the-libertarian-taliban/

"... parents should be concerned about about Gary North, and what his agenda is in educating their children. North has been quite explicit about this in the past, and he laid out his ultimate goals in an article in Christianity and Civilization...

...Children should be killed? According to North, this isn’t just acceptable, it’s mandatory. In his book The Sinai Strategy, North writes:

When people curse their parents, it unquestionably is a capital crime (Ex. 21:17). The son or daughter is under the lawful jurisdiction of the family. The integrity of the family must be maintained by the threat of death.
...

...This is a man whose worldview is so violent, bigoted, intolerant, homophobic, sexist, dogmatic, and bloodthirsty that it makes the Ku Klux Klan look like the NAACP. I wouldn’t feel comfortable letting my children in the same room with him, much less pay him money to indoctrinate them with his views on government, Western civilization, and the Bible. A man with North’s history would be more appropriate as a guest lecturer at the Westboro Baptist Church than a representative of classical liberalism."

Sounds great. They're not "crawling on our bellies to the state begging for accreditation"- meaning they can't get accredited because their curriculum sucks so they're not even going to try. They have ONE way of solving mathematical problems "the right way!!11!!". After 5th grade there's no need for any further parental involvement! Yeah, 'cos if you're homeschooling the last thing you want is parental involvement.

EDIT: riffle

I find this particularly irritating - especially the "crawling on our bellies to the state" - coming from someone who ran for president. Someone who wanted to run the state should have a little more respect for it.

Ron Paul himself would probably not endorse the curricula-- not that I care for the man, but I know a lot of Ron Paul lovers. He needs to be more careful about what he lends his name to, because this kind of thing seems to happen a lot.

That, and Republicans/libertarians need to do a better job of calling each other on their bullshit, and not accepting everyone who makes the right noises. This guy would be right up the Tea Party's alley, but I personally don't know a moderate Republican or libertarian who likes or would like North. This trend toward theocracy wouldn't have happened if Republicans hadn't sat back and shrugged all the fundie bullshit off as "well, that's just their personal belief!" fucking really? Can anyone imagine Democrats shrugging off shit like "Men don't know what's best for them!" or "white people are nothing but thugs!" or "Christians aren't real Americans!" ? But it's perfectly okay for right-wing crazies to say that about women, people of color, and non-Christians. Even Paul seems to be falling into that trap.

I disagree. I don't think he is falling into that trap.

He is intentionally running into it headfirst. He is a user who has no qualms about doing whatever he thinks he needs to do to gain influence and votes. Too bad so many true libertarians are fooled.

All JMHO, of course.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Therapy Outside the Box

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW

      Happy Supper Bowel Sunday!!  No, wait. That isn't right...
      Anyway, enjoy the game (or the half time show, or the ads)!
      And a very happy Sunday to everyone who doesn't care about the NFL!

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!

      Had ankle surgery on the 22nd and am non-weight-bearing until the 7th, and it would great if I could REMEMBER that I'm not weight-bearing until I try to step on my splinted ankle.
