GREENWOOD, SC – Boy Scouts from across the Blue Ridge Council gathered at the Greenwood YMCA for Merit Badge University, a program designed to allow scouts to earn merit badges during a day long camp.

Chip Stockman, Scoutmaster for Troop 911 in Greenwood, taught the Citizenship in the Nation merit badge class. Stockman said when he read the requirements for the merit badge, he had an idea.

“I saw that the last requirement was to write a letter to your congressman,” Stockman said. “I thought it would be a great idea to have Jeff (Duncan, U.S. Congressman for S.C. third district) come so they could actually meet him.”

Duncan talked to the scouts about the workings of government and what it means to be a citizen of the Unites States of America.

“Regardless of what you believe, get involved,” Duncan said. “Read the Constitution and try to understand it. Try to understand what our founding fathers were trying to do when they set up this great country.”

Duncan fielded questions from scouts and leaders alike and left his pocket copy of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence for scouts to read.

Stockman asked several scouts about issues they had noticed while watching the evening news during the past week. Among those topics were the fiscal cliff, gun control and the impending winter weather.

Scouts present earned their Citizenship in the Nation merit badge, one of the required merit badges to earn the rank of Eagle Scout.

Now to become a citizen you just cross the border illegally & wait it out, the politicians will give it to you to get votes to keep their power, Reagan tried it & even more came & no one even tried to secure the borders. And will not this time, jobs that average Americans used to do like painting, roofing, siding, brick mason, lawn care (which kids used to do to make money in the summer) sheetrock, etc.....will disappear with even more coming across the border to get the same deal. Of course the other side of the coin is doing things to help your community & country, now it is more what are they going to do for me, they owe me.
