Eye-popping power grab: Licensing of US colleges

This article posted by World Net Daily (WND) is yet another nudge to give Statists the power to take away all individual liberty.  Some may find the reference to the Education Secretary as a homosexual too homophobic, but you must ignore that to grasp the meat of this article.  Please read the paragraphs I have posted.  Especially the last paragraph which I took from the body of the post, because I believe it to be the most informative opinion in this article.  Please follow the link at the end of this post and read the full article.  It’s only with knowledge that we can protect our Constitutional rights.

WASHINGTON - SEPTEMBER 27: U.S. President Barack Obama greets supporters after signing the Small Business Jobs Act in the East Room of the White House September 27, 2009 in Washington, DC.

President Obama's Department of Education, where Secretary Arne Duncan appointed a longtime homosexual activist who was part of the sometimes-violent Act Up organization to head his "safe schools" office, now is proposing to force colleges and universities to submit to a political agenda, according to critics.

Under the proposed federal rule change, institutions of higher education "would be required to have a document of state approval … to operate an educational program, including programs leading to a degree or certificate," explained an analysis by Shapri D. LoMaglio for the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities.

"I think it is the greatest threat to academic freedom in our lifetime," former Sen. Bill Armstrong, now president of Colorado Christian University, told WND. "But only if you love liberty."

Read about what happens to students in college, in "Already Gone."

"What strikes me (and Armstrong, too) is that the move is more of the same," Ambrose continued. "The Obama administration does not much trust liberty. If something out there sneezes, regulate it. Surround it with endless pages of rules, blankets and blankets of rules, enough rules to smother the slightest hope of autonomy. Do more if necessary. Take over things. Take over health care. Take over the auto industry. Take over financial institutions. Government knows all. Government should do all. Government, we praise thee!"
