    What could he possibly mean by "transfer payment" but wealth redistribution, or "gifts"? I.e. taking money from people who earned it and giving it to people who haven't. It's "Welfare Queens" dressed up for polite company.

    Government, without which sound education for all is simply not possible, is the foundation of every society's prosperity. Not free enterprise, not free markets, not individual initiative, not financial innovation, but sound government policy soundly implemented. I.e. the "American System", which requires taxation, i.e. "transfer payments". Someone has to build those roads and bridges, defend those borders, run those schools and invest in core research.
