    It's a simple concept. If you want a service you need to be able to afford the service at what it costs. The cost should be equal between all of those desiring to purchase the service as what they are buying is the same. It's not hard to understand and only the government wants to run on a different principle.

    Why should I pay more for things like police protection than you? If anything the police spend more time in poor communities, so they should pay more.

    Unions over education, that's about right.

    I am talking about taxes here, not the cost of services?..

    Many people like yourself tell me I must pay taxes to pay for those services that I receive from the government.

    unions.... are a faction/ special interest, something the founders did not want to be involved in our government.

    The teachers have gotten a pass long enough, time to fire the incompetent ones immediately. Education is about the children, not the teachers.

    I actually agree on this point, but it's the education system as a whole that needs to be reworked, drilling information into children so they can fill in bubbles to determine how much funding a school gets is preposterous.
