Casual Responses

The Democrats--well, they're lost. The Republican drift to the left has pushed Democrats somewhere to the far side of George McGovern.
Oh Boy is that one for another day...
Think carefully about this one. You can't deny the Democratic Party is not what it was 40 years ago. Since 1972, the party has actively driven away voters who lean conservative. That's why the South has gone Republican.

At the same time, the Republican Party has gone from opposing big government and foreign entanglements to welcoming them with open arms. The party today looks like the Democratic Party of FDR.
I’m not a huge fan of government sponsored education, however, it does have a much better chance of getting people all on the same playing field than each city block having its own privately run school.
I'm not arguing for doing away with public education. But local control is key. No organization, corporate or political, is more efficient when it's centrally controlled.
