Stephen Baskerville will soon be recognized as one of America's greatest patriots. An educator of political science at Howard University, Baskerville has taken it upon himself to identify obvious problems with a system that is the greatest threat to "Truth, Justice, and the American Way". He leads by example to drive home the principles of a free society without being a direct victim of the family law system. He has unselfishly brought upon himself the same stigma shared by all deadbeat dads who are currently under siege by an "out of control" system that profits in the name of our children

Baskerville was a victim of censorship by the Secretary of Virginia when it became apparent that he possessed the clarity to see the family law system as a betrayal of everything that he held sacred and a violation of the principles that he has professed to his students. These principles are held sacred by every true American, and they will soon become aware of this national conspiracy that thrives on the exploitation of children for money, and is a pestilence cast on heterosexual taxpayers who dare to raise children in this country.

The federal mandate that was brought into existence to cure the welfare disease in this country has been poisoned by those states that recognized the profitability of non-compliance, or were lead into temptation by a sole source consultant (Policy Studies Inc. (PSI) of Denver, Colorado). The federal government has not recognized the importance to audit each state to assure compliance with the federal laws that empower each state to persecute the only parent financially capable of providing support for their children. PSI brags of subverting the Child Support Enforcement (CSE) of 49 states, Canada, Australia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

Identifying the "deep pockets" parent, a rogue state will deny custody of the children to their new "mark" and create a cash flow through the family law system based on the child support guideline that has been adopted by their state. The rogue states that demand the highest child support amounts will impose this on a noncustodial parent (NCP) and it will increase based on the number of children involved. An aggressive state child support guideline will guarantee financial insolvency of the NCP which will insure the birth of a new Temporary Aid to Needy Families (TANF) participant and will allow CSE to become the recipient of 10% interest on the back child support owed. The federal government will pay 70% of the TANF benefits while the state CSE agency extorts full reimbursement from a NCP in exchange for his indentured servitude to avoid debtor's prison.

The crucial element in this state-operated racket is the implementation of an outrageous child support guideline. It would be possible for our legislators to identify this crucial element if the child support guidelines were actually revealed to them. Instead, the legislators are being told that the child support guidelines for all states are reasonable by their clearinghouse for CSE statistics (Institute for Family and Social Responsibility (FASR) of Bloomington, Indiana). This clearinghouse is being funded by taxpayers and has successfully misled our legislators, thereby perpetuating a problem that is a form of "sociological warfare".

Dependent parents are promised custody of their children in addition to financial independence in exchange for ending their marriage by this state operated "confidence game". The custodial parent's (CP) financial windfall will be short lived when the NCP loses their job and stops paying child support. The betrayed CP will be forced to desperately attempt to meet the needs of the children until finally forced to beg for help from TANF. CSE will experience a financial windfall that increases with the time of impoverishment of the NCP, CP, and the children that they are forced to support. CSE will make more money by allowing this condition to persist, since bringing the NCP to court will result in a downward modification to their ever-growing arrearage thus decreasing the interest charged on money that never existed. The power of the federal law that allows state CSE agencies to deprive the NCP of his rights and privileges allows this racket to thrive on the destruction of the family that CSE was empowered to protect.

Stephen Baskerville is aware of this unconscionable system and refuses to tell his students: "Go find something for us to beat you with". He refuses to tell his students: "Achieve success and raise a family so you can experience for yourself the betrayal of all those ideals that I have so adamantly professed, thereby forcing you to wade through the rubble of your own family's destruction, and giving you the opportunity to bring change to a system that nobody else could".

Parents and children will be made aware of this threat to national security. They will revere those patriots that focused on this threat to humanity and put an end to the exploitation of children for money.
