If our children are being taught that America embodies no worthwhile principles to defend, no values to cherish, no traditions to preserve, then our republic is truly in jeopardy.

Academia, the education establishment and most educators do not believe America’s values and principles are exceptional. Curriculum guides and textbooks characterize America as a country that is destroying the planet, oppresses the poor and whose culture is no better than any other and is need of remediation.

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer in 2003 stated the challenge for Americans is to understand “how our Constitution fits into the governing documents of other nations.” In the name of “globalism” are we supposed to “fit in” with countries that permit the mutilation of genitals of women, wholesale slaughter of dissidents and ethnic cleansing?

It is time to recall, reexamine, and reaffirm who we are and what it is we have others wish to take from us.
