Of course he is giving it away free. In order to indoctrinate people's kids into his political ideology, at the earliest possible age. The same way religious groups stand outside public schools and give away bibles free.

If it was done with his own funds, after he is out of the Whitehouse, there would be nothing to scream bloody murder about. It would not invlove me.

Now, while in office, and using tax dollars to do it... Yes there would be howling.


Tell me you don't see the difference?

It would be one thing if it was forced. Being voluntary, there is no indoctrinating.

Or a free pizza night

Apparently, RP's curriculum is going to be bible based. I heard him speak when he
was running for Pres at a Thanksgiving Religious Round Table w/ other Republicans.
As an atheist, I was impressed that he seemed to be the only one on the panel that had
a true grasp of the teachings of the Prince of Peace.

If goodwill, and just war principles are the message he wants to "indoctrinate" kids with,
let them indoctrinate away Half kidding there.

RP has been an information, newsletter subscription guy his whole life.
With all the grand kids he has, he's probably simply passing on the knowledge
and info he told/tells his grand kids about all the time.

And let it be said, any Libertarian minded, as in Libertarian Party person, is going to
cringe at the recollection of American History, the way it is retold in the public schools.
This is just another avenue for a parent to help the child understand, set the
record straight.

As other posters have said, no one is forcing a parent to buy/ask for it.
RP will be charging for the primary grades 6-12.

If I still had kids in school I'd be one of the first to do this; parents have a fantastic alternative now with this Ron Paul curriculum......

Ron Paul:

“A common feature of authoritarian regimes is the criminalization of alternatives to government-controlled education.”

“Dictators recognize the danger that free thought poses to their rule, and few things promote the thinking of “unapproved” thoughts like an education controlled by parents instead of the state. ” the former Congressman added, noting that “…Children do better when their education is controlled by those who know their unique needs best, rather than by a federal bureaucrat.”

The man is simply awesome

When you sit the indoctrinated in the seat of reason, they tend to squirm.

Six year olds don't voluntarily agree to be educated in Ron Paul's political ideology. That just doesn't happen. Even if if they did agree to it, they would have no idea what they are agreeing to at that age.

It's just him. He's a wanabe dictator. There is something seriously messed up about a man who creates a home-school curriculum, designed to brainwash little children into believing in his political ideology. That gives him all the markings of a cult leader. I think this guy has potential to be the most dangerous American who has ever lived.

I'd feel the same way if he was a left-wing liberal Democrat, doing what he is doing.

You need to open your eyes. The Liberals have been brainwashing our children for years. And we have become a country of idiots.

I agree the Right Wing nut jobs have screwed up this country. Problem is there has been no difference between The Right and The Left for 30 years. That is why we are in the mess we are in today.

Ron Paul supporters realize this. They are not sheep, they question everything they hear from our government.

But I do believe it is too late to turn this ship around. The population has been successfully brainwashed.
