I currently attend college, and federal financial aid is virtually the only reason I am able to. Just the fact I am enrolled in college has given me the opportunity to gain entry-level employment in a field related to the one I am hoping to earn a degree in. Even though I am not scheduled to begin repaying on my loans until 2014, I hope to start working on them next year to keep the overall interest down.
Son, I'm a college graduate, and you'll learn in a few years it's not all that it's cracked up to be. I did the whole college thing a few years ago and graduated. Now I'm $40,000 in debt. While college was fun, what has my degree earned me? Nothing. I could not find a job anywhere. No matter how qualified you are, in a bad economy, jobs simply aren't available.
I do own my own business now, and am making a lot of money, more than anyone my age could probably dream of. But I could have done that on my own without getting a degree. You don't need one to start a business.
I fully support Ron Paul. Federal student loans are a drain on the economy. You can still get student loan from banks. Don't need to drain other taxpayers, which just in turn makes less jobs, making your degree worthless. Ron Paul is an intelligent man.
