    you'll probably find wide agreement on many issues geared towards reasonable ends... but i'd drop the whole "free college" thing.... it's nonstarter for some very good reasons.

    the pie in the sky bull**** about free college and high minimum wages belongs in the heads of fringe ideologues where it can be properly ignored.
    i didn't argue for a high minimum wage. i argued for debt free access to college.

    Graphics are worth a thousand words:



    If you don't know what this means, you shouldn't be allowed to discuss this topic...hell, you shouldn't even be allowed to vote.

    of course i do.... without one, I probably wouldn't understand why making it free to the students isn't a policy we should be chasing after.

    I'm still confused over what you mean by "debt free access"....is there another meaning to this beyond "free"?... if so, please elaborate.

    i mean that all students who complete their post secondary degrees should incur no debt, like high school graduates. a compromise point would be to make it need based, and to require completion of the degree.

    it still sounds like you are saying college should be free to the students.....but don't want to actually say it.

    what do you mean by "needs based"?

    I'm very open and supportive to reducing the inflated costs of a college education in order to made them affordable, but I can't support removing value from those degrees.

    what about masters programs and doctorates.. will those be free as well or will you allow those to continue to hold value?

    ok, cool. post secondary education should cause the student to incur as much debt as high school currently does. it's better to spend the money on that than to spend it on welfare or war.

    that's a lot of words to say "a College education should be completely free"

    as you don't seem willing to expand beyond your desire to see college be free, there's not much more we can talk about here...... I can only leave you with a single piece of advise.

    ...don't hold your breath.
