"...But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security..."

Mop Incident Teaches Value of History

After pealing the plastic off the brand new mop my wife just bought, I used it on the kitchen floor. Afterward, I leaned it outside, against the wall by the door. I didn’t realize it was going to storm that night, and the mop fell over landing in the mud.

To make a short story shorter, the mop ended up head down in the sink with my angry wife rinsing out the mud.

“Don’t you remember the last time this happened?” She asked.
I didn’t, and I told her so. She said, “Maybe I should write you a letter so you’ll remember and not repeat this again.

You see, this little incident illustrates, in simple terms, how history is bound to repeat if it is forgotten.

Not learning or remembering history will allow us to be led right back to where we, as a nation, ran from; or worse.

There are many American’s now who think Socialism and Communism is something good. Those are the people who either have not learned history, or they know history and intend to lead us there in spite of it.

I have posted parts of a Glenn Beck special here that I encourage you to watch. That said, let your kids watch it. We MUST NOT allow our nation to fall into the socialist trap.

People are easily led along into bondage, that’s what the Tower of Babylon was all about. I learned that this week by watching Glenn Beck.

In our case, we are being led into bondage and our chains that doom (and now hold together) our republic, just might be materialism.

Think about the importance of history, and teach ACTUAL HISTORY to your kids. Don’t leave this job solely up to schools… I implore you.

Your kids will listen to you.

Here's part 3 of 5 speaking about Socialism, marxism and communism.
