Political Opinions Banned in Classroom?

Political Opinions Banned in Classroom?

by Michael Hall

One state is in the process of moving one step closer to that Orwellian Society that we all fear, but we know will eventually come to fruition.

Lawmakers in Arizona are proposing legislation that would prohibit “any instructor in a public school or college from advocating or opposing a political candidate or one side of a social, political, or cultural issue that is part of a partisan debate.”

While supporters feel the law will help students in disagreements with their instructors, opponents say that the bill will “discourage instructors from leading discussions and debates on controversial issues.”

Senate Majority Leader Thayer Verschoor, the politician who wrote the bill, is quoted in the Associated Press as saying: “In any class, any issue could be discussed as long as the instructor is neutral on the issue and not telling you what your conclusion should be.”

While the senator’s statement seems reassuring, it is possible that this legislation, if passed, could highly restrict any flow of political opinions in our nation’s schools.

A Study in North American Union

The NAU first began gaining the attention of average American citizens in 2005, with the signing of the treacherous Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) and the release of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) report Building a North American Community (BNAC). The recentness of these eye-opening actions led many to believe that the NAU would be a long time in coming, but information continues to surface regarding the plethora of clever devices employed to sell the NAU to Americans and speed its arrival.

For those of you who are unaware, the sovereignty of the United States is at risk.  Yes, that’s right.  Lawmakers in Congress are pushing for the Security and Prosperity Partnership Act (SPP) that would essentially create a union between the United States, Canada, and Mexico.  This is a reality and it is happening right now.  Lou Dobbs, for one, has spoken extensively about this covert congressional measure that would end America as we know it.  Such an act will create a superstate, such as the European Union, and is a necessary stepping stone for the New World Order. 

While there seems to be plenty of proponents for the North American Union in Washingtion and in the corporate sector, state legislatures are still fighting for our constitutionally-protected right as a sovereign nation.  Lawmakers in Oregon are introducing legislation that will urge the United States Congress to withdraw from any further agreements with the SPP.  An excerpt of the resolution reads:

Be It Resolved by the Legislative Assembly of the State of Oregon:
That we, the members of the Seventy-fourth Legislative Assembly, respectfully request that the Congress of the United States withdraw the United States from further participation in the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America and other activities that advance, authorize, fund or promote the creation of a North American Union.

According to the John Birch Society, the following is “a summary of anti-NAU legislation that has been introduced in either the U.S. Congress, or in state legislatures”:
