    Let’s throw more money at them and not hold their feet to the fire for anything in return. Kids need to “own” their ability to get money….let’s quit encouraging a bunch of spoiled, enabled children and young adults

    Liberals believe in more than just equal opportunity; they want equal results. Trouble is not everyone is smart enough and/or ambitious enough to make it through college.. Throwing money away by trying to put every person, regardless of intellect, in college is not the answer. It may feel good to do so but it is a frivolous endeavor. Socialism never works. History has proven that.

    There is no reason to bring politics into it….Just as many Republican’s children as Democrat’s children are spoiled and enabled. They are all riding the “it’s free, so let’s get it” train.
