Want To Tell The State To Stick It? Homeschool Your Kids
The swelling legions of homeschoolers poke a subtle rebuke at America’s ever expanding nanny state. Under both parties, Washington has systematically invaded private spheres and co-opted public services historically performed by local bodies. But a spontaneous groundswell of freedom minded folks has continued America’s rich inheritance of rugged individualism.

The God-fearing, flag-waiving, gun-toting homeschool crowd embodies the American spirit of mutual self-reliance. You won’t encounter a more neighborly bunch. Their children thrive without government “help.” Their support networks blossom sans the state’s sanction. Meanwhile, taxpayers waste a fortune securing abysmal academic results. In 2012, SAT scores fell to their lowest level since tracking began. As spending soars, assessment scores plummet. ...

Here's an interesting bunch 'Brainy Bunch' family puts 7 kids in college — all by age 12. I would they would have made one book manditory (sp?) to read, the Bible and a book such as, Come, Let Us Reason.

Rufus, I don't remember anywhere I said that self-defense wasn't allowed, even with a gun. However toting them on the street is something else again. (Remember pepper spray?) We are suppose to getting away from the Wild West not going back to it, even Wyatt Earp banned guns in the law abiding parts of Dodge city. I suggest you look over the article, Five myths about gun control.

Yes, you're going to get more statism and if you get more of the Posse Comitatus (organization) types, we'd better have more state intervention! But remember Romanizing America Through Illegal Immigration among many other reasons, this country is going to be transformed anyway.

Nebraska has very little interference in home schooling, NET: Home School Nebraska. Many states allow the children to be as backward and ignorant as their parents, if that's what you want, no doubt there are states that will oblige your wish.

His "school at home" belief is still a Statist position because he believes the Almighty State should monitor and regulate how fathers are to train up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

[Quote=Jim Lincoln]Rufus, I was pointing what the article said,
"The God-fearing, flag-waiving, gun-toting homeschool crowd embodies the American spirit of mutual self-reliance...." I would point out perhaps the majority of people who home-school are pacifists, and wouldn't have allow a gun in their homes[/QUOTE]I suspect you are confusing terms or the definitions of terms for I am a pacifist as I am opposed to violence as a means of settling disputes. Yet if someone chooses to use violence against my family I would think it negligent/cowardly to not protect my family from physical harm and thus requiring that I posses the tools to contend against this violence.

“I have been repeating over and over again that he who cannot protect himself or his nearest and dearest or their honour by non-violently facing death may and ought to do so by violently dealing with the oppressor. He who can do neither of the two is a burden. He has no business to be the head of a family. He must either hide himself, or must rest content to live for ever in helplessness and be prepared to crawl like a worm at the bidding of a bully” - Gandhi

Rufus, I should point out that my father was really anti-union. I may not be as hostile as he was to them as he was, but I wouldn't want to join one. There is really nothing unbiblical about them--depending how they are run. I will point out union membership is the lowest in 73 years, what good have unions done. One thing they were instrumental in keeping wages up and supporting healthcare by their companies. Thanks to the greedy the government is the only way healthcare will be provided to citizens because for one reason or another, such as selfishness of management which sometimes was kept in check by unions we really do have to Give healthcare a chance to evolve.

Some things government can do better, some things government should do that it isn't, The Untouchables.

Not everything is about guns Jim but if I meant anything as you say, I would've meant like the two gun toting disciples that had a gun when the Saviour of the world told them to sell their garments and buy one.

I interpret what Jesus said in Matthew 26 as, I am going to let these satanic tyrants have their hour for the sake of the sinners I love but those tyrants that lead into captivity, I'm going to enslave and those that kill by the sword I'm going to kill. Keep in mind he's the king of kings and he will be bringing his kingdom in with violence.

Praise God you are favorable towards homeschooling. That is the only non-statist position I've witnessed you take.

Rufus, it's good to see you around. gun-totting, you mean like in Posse Comitatus (organization) or Muslims, or atheists or Doomsdayers?

Matthew 26
52 Then Jesus said^ to him, "Put your sword back into its place; for all those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword.---NASB

But anyway, I support home schooling, Encouraging and supporting Christian families who educate their children at home or a video, NET: Home School Nebraska. Also a very general site, Links To State Laws & Organizations For Homeschoolers.

Very good article.

I particularly liked the following:

"Moreover, Dr. Ray concludes adults taught at home retained their parent’s worldviews far more frequently than peers. Students learning at home absorb much less liberal cant."

This is something that bad guys recognize too and every Christian should hold the following quote (not found in the article) near to them:

"Education is thus a most powerful ally of humanism, and every American school is a school of humanism. What can a theistic Sunday school's meeting for an hour once a week and teaching only a fraction of the children do to stem the tide of the five-day program of humanistic teaching?" - Charles F. Potter "Humanism: A New Religion," 1930
