Who Did This To Us!!?

Who Did This To Us!!?

Do you know who did the following to us?

Think about it for a couple of minutes.

Can you identify the gross error is this panel of stunning American problems?

The answer is simple. It is the us! The poorly educated American electorate. Furthermore it was not just the Democrats, it was the Republicans too!

If a culture fails to teach its founding principles and values to its children, something like the above list (or worse) is the predictable result. The extended predictable result is the death of America.

The truth is that an increasingly ignorant “progressive” (I.e., radical-liberal) electorate has voted for increasingly ignorant, frequently sociopathic, power-hungry political operatives in both party’s.

True conservatism stands for America’s founding Principles: The Constitution, free speech, the unfettered practice of religious ideals (everywhere), the rule of law, limited government, states and local rights over federal dominance, capitalism with only essential regulation, locally determined educational curricula (honesty, but emphasizing the many positive aspects of American culture and history), regulating immigration primarily for America’s needs and benefit, teaching respect for laws and those in authority, supporting a strong military, respecting and supporting the roles of mothers and fathers (children and family’s), encouraging responsibility in all ways (including thrift, financial planning, personal industry and independence), and above all…protecting individual liberty from unessential governmental infringements or Unconstitutional restrictions.

I am certain that I must have missed something of importance in my long list of Conservative ideals. Perhaps you would be so kind as to identify anything that you think is missing and suggest it in my comments section.

I believe that the American Boy Scout’s Oath, Law, Motto, Slogan and Outdoor Code, most of which I was required to memorize and recite as a kid to become a Boy Scout, would flesh-out my preceding list. I was also a Cub Scout and an Explorer Scout, as were so many of my friends.  The ethics and Ideals in Scouting truly represented America’s conservatism during some of the best of this nation’s times.

I sense that a large proportion of American citizens do not support the various levels of “scouting” for boys and girls, as they once did.  Many will view what follows as “brain washing”, “propagandizing”, or the “regimenting” of children. Those are the pejorative terms that progressives will use. This is because citizens who adopt these ideals will generally not grow-up to vote for progressive politicians who in both parties who unerringly value those population bad behavioral outcomes that are first listed in this blog. These are the behavioral products of the maladaptive radical-liberal-progressive ideals that are now destroying America.

All of this remains our own damned fault. Wake-up America!

Please think about the wonderful beneficially-contagious (i.e., good behavioral contagion) American ideals listed below. I believe that that the majority of American parents would love to see many of these ideals taught in their school systems and I judge that this will be a a critical part of “Making America Great Again”!

Motto and Slogan

Outdoor Code

Boy Scout Oath or Promise

On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

Note that the Boy Scout Oath has traditionally been considered to have three promises. Those three promises are delineated by the semicolons in the Oath, which divide it into three clauses. The three promises of the Scout Oath are, therefore:

  • Duty to God and country,
  • Duty to other people, and
  • Duty to self

DUTY TO GOD AND COUNTRY: Your family and religious leaders teach you to know and serve God. By following these teachings, you do your duty to God.

Men and women of the past worked to make America great, and many gave their lives for their country. By being a good family member and a good citizen, by working for your country’s good and obeying its laws, you do your duty to your country. Obeying the Scout Law means living by its 12 points.

DUTY TO OTHER PEOPLE: Many people need help. A cheery smile and a helping hand make life easier for others. By doing a Good Turn daily and helping when you’re needed, you prove yourself a Scout and do your part to make this a better world.

DUTY TO SELF: Keeping yourself physically strong means taking care of your body. Eat the right foods and build your strength. Staying mentally awake means learn all you can, be curious, and ask questions. Being morally straight means to live your life with honesty, to be clean in your speech and actions, and to be a person of strong character.

Boy Scout Law
