    Post "I'm willing to give up some of my Constitutional Rights to be 'safer'."

    A Florida father says he was shocked to find a note in his fourth-grade son's backpack suggesting that his teacher instructed students to write letters on their willingness to give up their constitutional rights.

    Aaron Harvey told WOKV.com that his 10-year-old son was told to write a note reading, "I am willing to give up some of my constitutional rights in order to be safer or more secure," after a civics lesson at the end of last year.

    Harvey said he found the note earlier this month and obtained the curriculum guide for the lesson, which he said was geared toward helping students "determine their opinions on which rights they value most and least," the report states.

    He told the station that his son's teacher instructed several students in the class to write the statement and sign it. He said the story was corroborated by other parents with children in the class.

    Harvey, a military veteran, told FirstCoastNews.com he thinks the statement reflects the teacher's personal opinion.

    "I don't believe that any American or American child should be asked to write this," he said.

    Duval County Public Schools issued a statement Friday to FirstCoastNews.com in which they said the lesson was consistent with the district's "efforts to broaden civics-based education and develop critical thinking skills among our students."

    "The lesson builds awareness of First Amendment rights through a partnership with an association of local attorneys. Our possible concern rests with a follow-up activity that may have been conducted after the lesson," the statement read.

    Yeah, and I'm willing to give up some of my bullets to be *freer*. Remember that when you come for my rights.

    The NEA and here in Pa the PSEA are about the most left wing organizations there are and stronger then any union in the US. Somehow school administrators don't get that giving up rights that our forefathers fought and died for is like spitting on their graves.

    Those kids need to be taught that giving up any rights will not make you safer, only less safe.

    Freedom and Liberty require vigilance and hard work... that's too much for most people in today's AmeriKa. I have the bad feeling that we'll continue to see the downward trending of Liberty with the corresponding upward trend into tyranny until we reach critical mass. How many people do you know that wouldn't believe that they were being enslaved until the chains of servitude were lying upon their shoulders? I bet more than than you can count on your fingers and toes, that goes for each one of us... they have friends too, friends just like them. Scary stuff, right? It should be... we're all being sold into slavery under the guise of safety, bought and paid for with entitlement and entertainment.

    That is as honest a statement as you will ever find.

    And we are seeing the disasterous end product of "liberal" education systems at work.
