The self-professed genius, Sen. Hillary Clinton, often states, “It takes a village to raise a child.”

But, when the village is a pharmaceutical-pushing, sexualized cesspool of politically correct brainwashing, we must ask: Is this the kind of world (or village) in which we want to raise our children?

America’s youngest citizens today are forced to deal with too many adult issues which, inexcusably, are pushed into the earliest grades in public schools. It is not easy to be a parent these days, but when schools are essentially telling kids, “What your parents don’t know won’t hurt them,” this should demand a massive public outcry.

Each day, I ask my children what socialistic propaganda they were taught, so I can reprogram them to the values that our family holds dear. From manmade global warming to the push toward sexual experimentation, our little ones come home from school with the weight of the world on their shoulders.

Children need to be allowed to be happy, carefree kids. Parents need to be attentive, responsible parents. And schools need to return to the basics of reading and writing (in English), math, science and accurate history.

Portland’s decision on middle-school contraception is making homeschooling look pretty darn good. The people who voted “yes” to contraceptive availability for young children should be ashamed of themselves. They are initiating that first big push down the slippery slope that one self-professed genius wants to instill across all of America.
