Make Real Civics Education a Priority Again – Week of October 26th

Keep an eye out every week for a new activity or book or lesson to bring real civics back to our children.

This week, we are asking that you talk to your kids or grandkids about voting. If you can, take them with you to vote, or show them your absentee ballot if you are voting that way.

Discuss with them the importance of voting and what it means to be able to vote. Talk to them about integrity and honesty, and why we need to protect the integrity of our elections. Discuss the fact that there are people who want to cheat in order to win and gain power, and so why we must guard against that.

Finally, use the election and voting as a jumping off point to again discuss the exceptionalism of the American experiment and the wisdom of our Founders. Specifically, teach them about the “tyranny of the majority,” and why our Founding Fathers deliberately tried to prevent this from happening in America. And, why we are a republic and not a democracy.

Because of the miseducation and indoctrination by progressives, too many Americans believe we are democracy, and during elections, this myth is pushed even harder. We must teach our children and grandchildren the truth, and this is the perfect time to do it.

Use this article/report from The Heritage Foundation, “Preventing ‘The Tyranny of the Majority’” to help you in your discussion with your kids and grandkids. Depend on their ages, you might need to read it and distill the ideas into something simpler, or if they’re older, you can both read it and then discuss.
