You seem to be an all or none type of person. This is something that the Democrats have become very effective at convincing the American populous of, regardless of it false nature.<quoted text>
You'll pay for that child's lack of education in the long run. Prison time, welfare checks, missed opportunity...
Give a man a fish and feed him for a day, teach him to fish, feed him for a life time.
As far as vouchers are concerned there is an experiment of sorts running in Indiana.
Democrats have convinced the public that without government we will all be living in the streets, starving and dieing from lack of healthcare. This is nonsense. Where there is a demand there will always be a service.
We didn't have a department of education or federal funding for education in 1776, yet there were schools, and people were educated. I would argue far better educated and well versed than the children of today. Those who didn't attend a "school" per se learned a trade and became productive. Sure there were some who remained uneducated and quite poor, but despite your best efforts and an endless supply of fabricated funding you will NEVER eradicate the poor and uneducated, it is simply a reality.
How long have we been fighting the war on poverty? Are we winning?
