"We've got to teach history based not on what's in fashion but what's important. If we forget what we did, we won't know who we are. I'm warning of an eradication of the American memory that could result, ultimately, in an erosion of the American spirit."
by:
Ronald Reagan
(1911-2004) 40th US President

Reader comments about this quote:
History has to be taught on "what's important"  WHAT? ? ? What's important to the protection and advancement of individual sovereignty, inalienable right, liberty, and the laws of nature and of nature's God varies greatly from the importance laid upon history from the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land. In an intended erosion of law, liberty and rights, Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin often spoke of the ultimate "American spirit" of history eradicating American memory from many. Concerning individual sovereignty, inalienable rights, liberty and the laws of nature and of nature's God, truth is to be taught as the standard with an history of events that relate thereto.

    In school, history class was taught as 'Social Studies'  why the change in terminology?  American History is no longer a required subject in High School, nor do colleges seem to care.  Americans are taught that the USA is a democracy  it is not, never was.  As a result, the government has been able to usurp the sovereign powers of the People.  Declaring states of emergency indefinitely in order to enforce unlawful dictates has become a racket  everybody wants in on the act.  Chicken Little and Henny Penny are running for president, and apparently won.  Is there nothing Americans won't fall for any more?
