All this is true with one big BUT—we all have to live with the effects of the social indoctrination of schools from K-12. It does affect us, in terms of how they vote and how they view govt—mostly as an entity that handles all our ills and takes care of us.
I mean seriously, when a K'er comes home saying they don't like that "white guy" during a national election and their readers are full of global warming nonense—what would anyone expect of our youth later? ( A lot of this is coming from UN funds for Agenda 21 right into local schools. Also read the UN Charter of Human Rights which is half socialism.)This is even more true with two parents working, no one home and too tired to check things when they get home for work.
2. My wife is professor in a state university. If you are afraid of what they are teaching at the university level, take a look at ratemyprofessor.com, or one of those Rush/Beck groups on campus and they'll tell you which commie/pinko profs to avoid. I had 'em try to recruit me into theirt little cabal back in the 80's at WSU, I'm sure they're still on every other campus.
3. Guess what? People are free to make up their own minds. I used to think alot like some of the other guys on this board. Listened to Rush every ****ing day. Then I realized he was as full as a construction site shitter.
I am not as concerned about the university college level, although dominated by Marxists, because they are at least adults, young ones, but still not children.
However, I do think a variety of views serves them better so they have something to make their minds up about. However, a professor ranting about Rs in general as evil in a literature class, is beyond teaching the course.
The administration at my daughter's college, hates Rate My Professor, and claim it's not accurate. All the more reason to use it, imo. She's found it to be dead accurate and has allowed her to avoid courses with shitty profs but it's not based on political views.
