Protecting Parental Rights
Posted by Randy | July 22, 2013

I recently cosponsored H.J.Res.50, the Parental Rights Amendment to the United States Constitution.  The Amendment specifically states that the "liberty of parents to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their children is a fundamental right." Additionally, the amendment declares that no federal or state government action, including ratification of an international treaty, can infringe upon this right without demonstrating a governmental interest of the highest order.

Today, more than ever, our family structure is under attack, but I believe that parents must retain the right to direct their children’s upbringing and education without undue government burden.
I will continue to work to rein in activist judges that threaten the very foundation upon which this county was built – jeopardizing our culture of self-responsibility and responsibility for our children. Read more about my work on these issues here.

    Our family structure is not under attack congressman. This is a paranoid absurd statement. You have really gone off the deep end sir.

    HJR.50 sounds like a thinly veiled endorsement for adding privatized schooling to the constitution. A bad idea from the word go. Privatized schools aren't any better at educating children than public schools. However, privatized schools are much better than public schools in one area...separating parents from their money. Instead of this HJR.50 nonsense, how about amending the constitution ending birthright citizenship, something that actually benefits taxpayers. Where is the leadership? Also, where is the bill outlawing congressional interaction with lobbyists and special interest groups?
