    Then no one really owns land at all in the us and what I thought was the problem is actually far worse. It felt like the mob before, but now the difference is non-existent. Thanks for clarifying..I guess.

    I guess the next poll should be "Should people in the US be able to own land outright without an allodial title" This country is a ****ing disaster without doubt.
    Michal badnarik has a lecture that you can watch on youtube that will explain it all.

    This is the one on allodial titles.

    You pay for your home and property taxes for 30 years and then when you retire, if you're lucky, you can afford to live in the home you have worked all those years to pay off. Property taxes make retirement difficult for some, and very difficult for others.

    One can never pay enough taxes. Our elected officials and those who scream more, more, more make sure of that.

    Economists define public goods as non-rivalrous and non-excludable. Education does not satisfy that definition.

    Talk about entitlements...we need to get rid of every sorry ass in Washington...all of whom believe that they are "entitled" to use the taxpayers any way that they wish.

    The problem folks isn't Demos, Repubs...etc raping everybody on a daily basis. The problem isn't the Party Machines who spend billions to mind-**** you at every waking opportunity. Look in the mirror.

    Perhaps because they'd prefer that other people pay to educate their children?

    I am in China at the moment. We were talking about thing like the one child policy. They don't actually have it anymore, there are just rural party leaders who enforce it of their own. Now what they do is make you pay for the services the additional kids get.

    They were appalled that someone with 12 kids pays no more that someone with 1, or none.

    Even the real socialists don't agree with what we do.

    you should have as many children as you can afford to raise properly. sadly, the least able tend to spawn like toads while the high achievers tend to have very small families.

    Screw your economists. Go out and interview normal citizens and ask them if education is a public good. My money is on them. What about yours?

    I just googled PUBLIC GOOD DEFINITION and this is the first lead


    pub·lic good
    Noun:
    A commodity or service provided without profit to all members of a society, either by the government or a private individual or organization...
    The benefit or well-being of the public.
    Looks like your defintion is intentionally skewed and not at all correct.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    I will reproduce what I wrote earlier.

    I was using the precise economic definition of a public good. If you have a problem with that definition, take it up with the economics department at your nearest university.

    Your "economically speaking" is not worth the economic value of a good bag of common garden manure if you are attempting to use it to push the stupidity that public education is not a public good.

    We do not allow some economist to define what is and what is not in the national interests.

    And thank God for that.
