    How can we hear all these stories about the US losing ground when it comes to education and stories about how we must protect our children's future and then cut funding for education?

    Why doesn't the GOP just come out and say that only children with rich parents should be entitled to a college education? If you're lower or middle class, you can get a college education, just be prepared to borrow even more money.

    These people are truly un-American

      espoused exactly that position in the early 90s, written by Buckley himself.  It looks like a full ride at Yale paid by his folks convinced him that if he could do it, anyone could.  Obviously the proles didn't have the wherewithal to create doctors, engineers, and scientists.

      Mind you, WFB was never overly concerned about creating a permanent serf class.  His yacht needed regular bottom work, after all.
