Free Education

“When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.” — Benjamin Franklin 

Democrat and Socialist Bernie Sanders says he is going to pay for free college for everyone who wants to go to college.   He is going to pay for a lot of other things too.  Free stuff for everyone.  Everyone likes free stuff.

Where in the Constitution does it say people get free stuff?  Why does everyone need to go to college at no expense?  Perhaps we should simply nationalize all the schools and draft all the teachers.  Then they could be forced to work for what the military pays a private.  That would bring down the cost of education.  

Of course, no one would ever want to be a school teacher again, but that's irrelevant.  Liberalism and socialism are not about results, they are about feeling good about yourself by doing good at other people's expense; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
