3USA and care nothing for our children's up-ward mobility or America itself.) Educationmust be returned to the local level, bypass-ing even state education agencies that taketheir orders from and receive between 60 and80% of their operational budgets from the federal government.Education must be restored to its state ofexcellence prior to 1960 —the best educa-tion system in the world. This can be done,and must be done, if our children are goingto have upward mobility and if America isgoing to survive as a free country.

2. Semantic Deception
This is the use of familiar, nice soundingterms, which have one meaning to goodAmericans and entirely different meaning to"
: Basic skills used to mean 3R's; now itmeans believing in tolerance of all behavior; theneed to move to an international system; the need for a new Constitution; the need for a new eco-nomic system.
3. Hegalian Dialectic
Create a problem; people scream; impose so-lution; people embrace "it"—not realizingthey have been taken to the cleaners throughthe deliberate creation of a problem.
: Create high school budgets that createhigh property taxes which causes people to haveto sell their houses and move. Then propose a so-lution to move funding of education from localto state level; the people embrace the idea sinceit lowers their property tax.
However, locals have just lost all their controlof schools to state, federal, and the interna-tional level. Also, dialectic includes moving fromsound morals and values to
through constant discussion using groupprocess. Pit "It's wrong to lie" against "It's OKto lie" and nearly all agree that lying is wrong.But through discussion and presentation ofsituations calling for compromise, one arrivesat "Sometimes it's OK to lie." Then eventually,one comes to the realization it is OK to lie, orkill, or steal, or do anything else that makesone feel good anytime one feels like it.

The litmustest for candidates running for Congressshould be "will they work to abolish the U.S.Dept. of Education and break up that cozy,in-the-same-bed, relationship it shares withthe Department of Labor and the UN?"Choice proposals are traps supported by mul-tinational corporations (David Rockefeller,etc., and by top education union officials—not teachers—who have no allegiance to the
of the American Educational Research Associa-tion. It discusses conning inner city parents intobelieving their children are doing well by using"
