Democracy as intended: American communities reject state and federal woke education

Published in Blog on January 06, 2023 by Chad Law

As Congress continues to distribute trillions of dollars to Marxist organizations, finding positivity in politics in 2023 is nothing short of impossible. However, national politics is only a fraction of America's whole political picture.

Often overlooked by the mainstream media, local elections can offer critical insights into what matters to Americans. Based on the election results of school boards across the country, education is the top priority for the American family. 

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, parents were forced to homeschool their children during the long-term shutdowns. This homeschooling allowed parents to take a deeper look into the curriculum taught to their children, and for most, it came as a huge shock. Quickly parents all over the country realized they had been much too trusting of their local education systems. It became clear that all sorts of ideological nonsense is taught in schools unbeknownst to parents.

Curriculum that prioritized sexual orientation and gender discussions in first and second-grade classrooms came before reading and math. Exercises that asked students to rank their "oppression" compared to other classmates were mandatory, while important history lessons were ignored. 

Instead of whining, complaining, and throwing their hands up, organizations like Moms for Liberty and the 1776 foundation empowered local school board candidates to work the American democratic system as it was intended. Thousands of grassroots supporters joined these causes and school boards flipped for anti-idealogical board members. First-time candidates won at a 74% rate and candidates endorsed by Moms for Liberty in Florida won at a rate of 80%. 

As a result, we're seeing mass terminations of progressive ideologue superintendents across the country. Bans on critical race theory have gone into effect, and in-depth curriculum audits are finding woke ideologies hidden throughout lessons. Gender policies, such as requiring parental consent to use different pronouns and names, garner massive support within communities. In addition, age restrictions on any gender or sexual orientation discussions have been adopted by dozens of school boards across the country. 

Contrary to popular belief, the Founders designed governance to work from bottom to top, not the other way around. The policies should start at the local level and then impact decisions moving up through states and eventually Congress.

Sadly, our federal government feels entitled to meddle in state and local policies without accurate community representation, which has led to the degradation of local government. However, thanks to the grassroots movement in education, community governance took back control and rejected the state and national push for indoctrination and ideological curriculum in schools.  

This school board effort is the best example of Americans using the democratic system to create lasting change in recent history. By removing power from government employees like teachers, principals, and superintendents and redistributing power to the taxpayers and parents, Americans reminded the country where the power truly belongs – with them. 

School board election wins may seem like a small feat to some, but the results can not be ignored. Our Constitution calls for the power of the individual and their community; demonstrating democracy to be the only way to influence change. Let this be a wake-up call for state and national politicians all over the country. Take the lead from your communities and create policies that consider their needs.

These grassroots efforts directly reflect how out of touch the current federal government is and the little faith Americans have in their representative government to create a policy that aligns with their priorities. The success of this grassroots movement should act as a catalyst for communities to step up and influence other parts of local government.

Most importantly, Americans everywhere are sending politicians a message: going against the people and forcing broad sweeping measures by controlling funding is a sure way to lose elections. Furthermore, when it comes to education, never mess with a lioness and her cubs. 

The good news is, there is still hope. A Convention of States using Article V of the Constitution will limit the federal government and naturally redistribute its power to the people and their communities.

The disconnection between local and national governments results from the bloated and mismanaged Congress and federal agencies. The Founders included Article V to ensure power stays with the people, not the government. 

These impressive local school board election results only reaffirm the need for a Convention of States. Politicians are discussing how much money to send to foreign governments and how to fund non-essential programs, while Americans are prioritizing their children's education. A Convention of States will ensure American priorities come first by holding politicians accountable.

Fiscal restraints, term limits, and mandating that elected officials are held accountable to their constituents are just a few ways a Convention of States will be the salvation of American democracy. 

Americans must ask themselves, if America’s children are not the priority of those elected to represent you, what exactly is the priority?  

Spoiler alert! It’s not you.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
