    You sound like you share the same mentality with most people in Congress. Wonder why they're virtually powerless in getting any real work done.
    The GOP National Committee should change their emblem from an elephant to a condom. A condom stands up to inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects pricks, and gives one a sense of security and safety while screwing others.

    I support private schooling. Public schooling offers a system of education that has lower baseline.
    Private schooling is great for those who can afford it. I wouldn't necessarily abolish it, as long as everyone has access to free school I don't see why wealthy families couldn't pay the money to send their kids to private schools. Likewise with health care, as long as everyone has access to free care, I don't see why wealthy patients couldn't pay for private care.

    And nothing wrong with that at all.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Sounds like I believe in self-responsibility...I know, what a horrible viewpoint to think people should care for themselves.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    Fine. But you have to willing them die, even if it is someone you care about. It's hard thing for many to do.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Most likely you and I are polar opposites on the political spectrum. And the funny thing is that I agree since I too believe in responsibility and I think people should take care of themselves.

    I also think people should eat right, exercise, go to bed early, stay in shape, get educated, be frugal, only have kids when you are ready for them and them love them with all your heart body and soul, be constructive members of the community, and all those other things that make for a rather conservative lifestyle.

    I also realize that I am not GOD and cannot make all those things reality.

    This is where philosophy conflicts with real life application.

    Personally, I believe housing should be absolutely free, food and water should be free, people should only have to work 20 hours per week in order to live comfortably ect.

    However, these are not pragmatic in practice. Believing something and effectively implementing it are two different things.

    What a ridiculous statement.
    I can provide for anyone I want to.

    Seriously, you make me laugh.
