In The Last 60 Years, The American Federal Government Has Nothing To Show For Billions Of Investment In Its Social Programs. Not One Is A Success.
Public Schools, Social Security, Income Tax, Welfare, Medicare/Medicaid, The War on Drugs, etc... Can anyone honestly disagree and point out a single social program NOT related to the military or infrastructure of the US, that has actually been successful? Why would anyone in their right minds want the government to run health care or even get involved? Everything they touch turns to feces. Feel free to correct me if you can.

I'm not going to defend the vast portfolio of government funded programs. Clearly some don't work. But I will say I went to public school, it was a good experience where I went and it did prepare me for college, and without public school I'm not convinced my parents could have or would have paid for me to go to private school instead nor had the skills to home school me.

 How much a year do you think your parents were spending in taxes to pay for your public education?

While you seem convinced your education was adequate, do you believe it was really all that good?

Do you have kids to compare your experience with?
