RE: Far right fixing to bail on Bush?
Wake up dude, the problem is not per capita spending on primary/high school education, it is the total absence of government support for free higher education. In China and India, it is free to the docturnal levels. In America, even state supported universities cost a fortune, and have limited placements, and we do little to encourage study of hard math and science, and produce waves of psyche majors and little else. We are goddam fools for doing this. By not producing mathematicians, engineers and scientists, we will become slaves to those who do.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
