The Government Wants Your Kids

You might—or might not—have noticed that part of the entire health care debate is centered around children, and the health care they receive. For it is on our children that the main burdens of the new debt we are taking on to pay for health care will fall, and it is they who will wind up with their entire lives electronically recorded by a government run health care system. Of course, I’ve discussed the government’s desire for our children in terms of school many times on this blog, and I believe there is a concerted effort to “take over” the entire home schooling movement, as well, in the wings. And we all know the government would like nothing better than to have every child come out of their education with a hankering to join a union of some sort, and relying on the “mainstream media” for all their information.

The next step in this parade is to reduce the dependence of young adults on their families and private organizations, transferring that dependence to the government, as well. That’s the upshot of a recent move in Congress to change the law so all student college loans must go through the Government; that no private lenders will be able to make student loans any longer (via RedState).

While we are all focusing on H.R. 3200, the House Democrats’ health care plan, we should at least glance at H.R. 3221, the House Democrats’ plan to kill off higher education access. (PDF)

The legislation is opposed by many major universities including Notre Dame, among others. Basically, the bill would shut down all private providers of student loans, drive up costs for universities, and become a bureaucratic nightmare for institutions of higher learning. The professors may be leftists, but the administrators have to pay attention to the bottom line.

Get that? The Democrats want an “all-government run program” to provide people access to money to pay for college. And if they do that, then they can force universities to comply with lots of new rules or deny students the right to use federal student loans to go to particular colleges.

The bottom line idea seems to be to make certain every college student comes out of college owing the Government money, and, at the same time, gaining firmer control over what colleges teach. A nice two-fer. The House has just passed this bill, by the way.

And if you don’t think this is all about worldview, and making certain the government controls the worldview of our kids, consider this: Some 29 states now provide psychiatric counseling to preschool students. The reasoning is that if we can catch aggresive students at an ever younger age, we can counsel them out of their problems. I’m certain they also make certain these kids don’t hold to any sort of fundamentalist beliefs along the way, like believing in absolute truth.

  • Great website. I wish had more like this in Sweden…

  • This is a great step toward involuntary service without actually saying it’s required. Technically speaking, government service would be optional. However, commit a few years of your life to your Government and they will pay off your loan. It will become economically unfeasible for our children to not take them up on their offer.

    Remember, the Government will not take everything away in one giant step. That would cause too much of an uproar. But, if they do it little by little, the masses won’t even notice.

    Join the effort of voting out all members of congress to send a message that the people are still in charge. http://www.1andDone.org

  • Consider this:

    The Outline of the Plan http://www.eagleforum.org/educate/2009/sept09/college.html on our dime, with our tax dollars, under hr 1388 give act (his civilian military act that passed this spring) that states the following when kiddies get government tax dollars to go to school:

    The Give Act requires anyone receiving school loans, among others to serve at least three months as part of the brigade (depending on level of aid).

    • HR 1388 touts aims to “leverage investments to increase State, local, business and philanthropic resources to address national and local challenges” (in other words to train for service through non-profits and government – can you say serfdom?), but is downright specific in what its members can and cannot do.
    o Forbids any student in the brigade to participate in “engaging in religious instruction or worship, constructing or operating facilities devoted to religious instruction or worship, maintaining facilities primarily or inherently devoted to religious instruction or worship, or engaging in any form of religious proselytizing. (You aren’t allowed to talk about or participate in your faith!)
    o Amendment 49 of this bill PROHIBITS organizations from attempting to influence legislation, organize or engage in protests, petitions, boycotts, or strikes and assist, promote or deter union organizing.
    Section 120 of the Bill describes in the “Youth Engagement Zone Program” how “service learning” will be “a mandatory part of the curriculum in all of the secondary schools served by the local educational agency.”

    Then there is this article STIMULUS REQUIRES CENTRALIZED DATABASE OF ALL STUDENTS…. http://www.eagleforum.org/educate/2009/sept09/student-database.html Why? We see it happening. Right before our eyes. We see it happening. It is HR 3221.

  • BTW, meant to say what a great blog you have here! Hit enter to say that and badabing, it submitted!
