  •  It's not only what the government did for you (5+ / 0-)

    to  paraphrase JFK, it's what you will do for your country!  Because of the opportunity you are taking to get an education, you will end up being a taxpaying citizen, contributing to our economy for your entire life rather than being a drain on it. Other first world countries are amazed that we don't invest more publicly for our kids to go to college, voluntarily disarming in this competitive world. Or are kids with rich parents smarter than those with poor ones? You'd must believe that if you are a Republican.  IF we don't believe in investing in the next generation, in people like you, then just what is worth investing in?  If we don't believe in that, how can we believe in a future at all?  

    "The only thing we have to fear - is fear itself." - Franklin Delano Roosevelt
