The Outrage of Injustice

The Obama administration, all the Democrats, and too many of the Republicans are salivating all over themselves trying to be the first "compassionate" party to provide widespread amnesty for all previous, current, and future illegals in America. 

In case you're so naive that it has to be spelled out for you: It's purely for political gain - to court that population and win their vote for life. 

And why not? That blueprint has worked exceedingly well for the Democrats for the past 50 years. 

[An aside: Here's a little bit of history, at no charge, that you won't hear in our Progressive Institutions of Indoctrination which we refer to as Public Schools - my 20 years there earned me the right to bestow that title.

Rewind back to the late 1950s - early 1960s. Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower twice proposed and signed civil rights acts into law, but not without much opposition from Congressional Democrats. And who even led a Senate filibuster opposing it?

Democrat Senate Majority Leader Lyndon Baines Johnson.

"But he's the president who signed the 1964 Civil Rights Act," you say.

First of all, there were several. That was the only one signed by a Democrat...and with a glaring admission:

"These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.” LBJ

As he outlined his massive government-dependence welfare scheme, he touted:

“I'll have those n*****s voting Democratic for the next 200 years." LBJ

Now, I ask you, does that sound like a man who has a love for his fellow man?

But it worked. And the Democrats have been known as the party for civil rights ever since.]

But, on this very day, as our politicians hammer out hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of legalese pages trying to prove their love and compassion for illegal immigrants, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) is going out of its way to give one lawful immigrant family the boot.

Is it because they came here legally? Is it because they don't have a need nor do they want our welfare handouts? Is it because they are Christians? Is it because they home educate? Is it because their vote isn't for sale? Or is it because this family's worldview clashes with that of the government's?

The Romeike family fled their homeland Germany because homeschooling is illegal there. That community is under much persecution in Germany, and too often, children have been removed from their families to be placed in foster homes and even mental institutions.

If the Romeikes return to Germany, they will be severely punished and have their children removed.

They came to the US legally (their first mistake?) seeking asylum. A judge granted it to them, and they were golden. 

Enter President Obama and minions. The DOJ actually intervened to appeal the judge's decision, arguing that parents have no inherent right to educate their children as they see fit.

US Attorney General, Eric Holder, the highest law enforcer in the land has expressed that banning home education would not violate any fundamental liberties.

Did you catch that, parents? if you think this is only about homeschooling, begin reading this article again and pause at the instructions for the naive.

Through it all, President Obama remains silent as to why he wants to deport this family.

Yes, I'm cynical and I'm angry - no, livid. And why aren't more of you??

The irony of it all is nauseating to me. I am exhausted by politicians claiming to care for "Little Guy" (and getting by with it with the 60-second news-bite, distracted public) while their actions demonstrate otherwise.

Why are governments insistent that they dictate a child's education? What happens when that dictate conflicts with the conscience of the parents? Whose children are they anyway? Who is the final arbitrator? In the end, is the government responsible for the child?

Through the decades, we Americans have ceded more and more God-given liberties to our government. Where we find ourselves now is the logical progression. Just where does it end?

We must ask the tough questions, especially in light of the DOJ's position on this case and the current Common Core battle over who controls education, the federal government and a couple private entities or parents and local schools.

Remember that inscription on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty?
"Give me your tired, your poor,your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
"Send these, the homeless, tempest-sty to me, I lift up my lamp beside the golden door!"
Once a symbol for welcoming the likes of the more.

Please share this article, tell others, sign the petition. Tell your congressmen to put aside their election concerns with amnesty and instead fight to keep the legal Romeike immigrants in America.

Let's see if they care enough for "Little Guy" when it's not about his vote.
