Taking it Back

Living where I live is an interesting experience. What is most interesting is the number of people who are beginning to take their town back.

For decades, the community I live in has had it's bureaucracy grow. Unions have taken over and increased school budgets, forced closings and consolidations.

The other day, a gentleman came into my office and started talking about all the things he is doing to take back his life. He is no longer allowing the local, regional, state or federal bureaucrats a say in what he teaches his children.

He is founding a private school that teaches children the basics and returns them to an era when they felt free to question the status quo. This gentleman isn't happy with his current status quo. Listening to others in our small community, tells me he is not alone.
