In response to my WND column Go To Trade School, Young Man, someone posted a dissenting opinion on both my blog and in the comments section on WND as follows:
We need two things to be absolutely free in this country....free HEALTH CARE......and free EDUCATION. There are 33 countries in the world that provide free HEALTH CARE and 133 that provide FREE EDUCATION.
We are the richest nation in the world so why can't we get it right? There is only one difference between us and the people in those countries........and that is that they pay their fair share of taxes across the board.....including the very rich.
I know for a fact that I paid 30% in income taxes last year and Romney, by his own admission (for what thats worth since he won't prove it).......paid only 13.6%.......a MULTI-MILLIONAIRE!! I ask you, what is wrong with this picture? By the way......it is speculated that Huntsman Senior who used to work at Bain Capitol spilled the beans to Harry Reid about Romney paying zero taxes in the last 10 years.....I'd say that is a good reason to back off from coughing them up.......!!
The millionaires and billionaires in this country are paying less than they have ever paid in history. You bet.....the best we can do is a good trade school until we can unprivitize the universities and put it back to the way it was when FDR was president. He had the richest paying their fair share and the country did well. Just look at history. It says it all........
Reader Rob over at PACNW Righty wrote an intelligent and thoughtful rebuttal to this opinion. You can read his post here.
