The below listed article was written by one of the members of the Board of Directors of the Combat Veterans For Congress PAC, Capt R. Buddy Welborn, USNA Class of 1959, USN (Ret), PhD, who is a Trustee of the US Naval Academy Foundation. The article should be read by every American before they vote, in the up and coming national election. Capt Welborn was motivated to write the article after reading Eric Bolling’s bestselling book, “Wake Up America!”, it supports “The Free Enterprise System” that created the most effective economic engine in the history of mankind, and encourages instilling the “Pride in America” in our nation’s youth.
Over the past 8 years, Common Core has force fed its corrupted version of US History in grammar, Junior high, and high schools. The teaching of Patriotic Pride, that once was uniform, has been downgraded and in some cases eliminated. Some teachers have actually raised the Mexican flag over their schools, and in some schools the “Pledge Allegiance” to the flag has also been eliminated. The “Pride In America” once instilled in all grammar, junior high, & high schools has been downgraded by the Common Core Curriculum being taught using US History books with a corrupted version of US History.
The religious values upon which the Republic was founded are no longer taught to students. That is partially responsible for the acceptance of Socialism by young students, who have not been taught the strengths of the Republican form of government, in comparison with the flawed Socialist form of government being subtly promoted by the Common Core curriculum. The students are not taught that Socialism has never worked in any country where it has ever been tried over the last 100+ years.
The Department of Human Resources is requiring State School Boards to purchase US History books, with a corrupted version of US History, that are required by the Common Core curriculum. The revised US History books, along with the Common Core curriculum, have eliminated many of the early Patriots, find fault with many of the Founding Fathers, no longer instills “Patriotic Pride”, inserts new individuals to make the history politically correct, and criticizes the motives of the nation throughout history. Many teachers who do not have “Pride in America”, teach the Common Core curriculum, and use US History books with corrupted versions of US History, have created a generation of students who no longer have “Pride in America.”
America witnessed the lack of “Pride in America” by young professional football players refusing to stand when the National Anthem is played prior to the commencement of the game—the disrespect for the National Anthem is being copied at some high school football games by some high school football players copying the professional football players. Many of the weak kneed owners of Professional Football Teams, and the Executives of the National Football league (NFL) and the American Football League (AFL) are allowing the National Anthem and the American Flag to be dishonored at professional football games.
Young football players who refuse to stand when the National Anthem is played, continue their disrespect because the owners lack the backbone to put an end to it. The American fans are making the NFL and the AFL lose at the box office, by substantially reducing their attendance. There is an obvious difference of how the National Anthem and the American Flag are honored during professional baseball games, and how the National Anthem and the American Flag are treated at professional football games.
The Combat Veterans For Congress subscribe to Capt Welborn’s philosophy “What We Leave Behind---Matters”. The above listed Mission Statement for the Combat Veterans For Congress PAC supports the Republican form of government that the Founding Fathers created for Americans. Obama and Hillary are disciples of Alinsky, and we do not endorse their plans to change the Republic to an intrusive and oppressive big central form of government, a Socialist form of government.
In 1787 during the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, Benjamin Franklin was asked, “What have we got?”, he said, “A Republic, if you can keep it.” By reading our Mission Statement you will understand that we endeavor to support and “leave behind” the Free Enterprise System for the Republic, Freedom of Religion guaranteed to all Americans by the US Constitution, an educational system that teaches students to have “Pride in America,” and a strong US military that will guarantee “Peace Thru Strength.” Donald Trump Supports our Mission Statement.
