    We already have a well funded public school system. We spend more money educating children than all but a handful of (mostly Scandanavian) countries.

    As I recall Chris Christie is being demonized for pointing out the high per student cost of education in his state vs. the results generated. So to a liberal it is all about spending more money and not about generating better results.

    See what I did there?
    Arguments like that can be made to Republicans. But you're not dealing with Republicans any more. You might as well be facing the Huns.

    Now I would think if I were a Democrat or Republican, I would listen to one of the richest men in the world that made most of his money just by figuring out ways to push money around in the right direction. I dunno, that's just me.
    Trickle down is just another buzzword with a politically implied meaning.

    The closest I an get to a practical application is lowering the taxes for the rich and corporations will in some way benefit the middle class or poor, but even that doesn't work. How they spend it doesn't necessarily mean more jobs or lower prices.

    Talk about pesonal responsibility! Where are the parents at?
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    You have to be kidding, it is always someone else's fault that kids aren't getting educated and it is all because we aren't spending enough money. That is the liberal argument. You are right no though, where are the parents?

    Save your "liberal" speech for those moved by partisanship. America's educational woes stem from the home, where young students are made to believe they can all become doctors and lawyers. Once mommy and daddy (if the kid's lucky) find out that Timmy is intellectually incapable of getting into med school, their son already hates the concept of "learning". Truly a tragedy, although this has nothing to do with liberals and the Obama.

    Sorry but it has everything to do with liberal ideology vs. conservative ideology and nothing to do with partisanship, only logic and common sense. How in the world did we ever survive and create a 14.5 trillion dollar economy without all that help from liberals? Maybe if you got your nose out of the economics book you would understand personal behavior a lot more.

    How can this even be considered a reply to my statement? If this is the norm, don't bother to quote me and simply hit the reply button.

    It couldn't be the fault of mediocre schools and the fact that we can't fire teachers. No way.

    But as for a real argument, why do private schools do better than public schools, even though public schools send way more per pupil?

    The Real Cost of Public Schools | Andrew J. Coulson | Cato Institute: Commentary

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
    "True law is right reason in agreement with nature . . . Whoever is disobedient is fleeing from himself and denying his human nature [and] will suffer the worst penalties . . ." - Cicero
