A proper education or training should be readily available to every citizen. The middle class and the poor should not have to pay a single dime to go
to school. All of this student loan crap, it shouldn't even be an issue in our supposed great country. We need educated citizens in order to progress
as a nation so why isn't it the governments responsibility to educate the citizens? Educated citizens often pay taxes, those with no education
usually do not because they aren't making enough money. You want more tax money coming in, educate everyone.
Time for me to say something that will not go over well with most of you. Those who are too poor and have nowhere to go should have housing provided
by the government while in school, be it trade school, community college, or university. I mean we give so many worthless people free housing, why not
give potential students a place to live while going to school? Just crack down on those who choose to be worthless and boot them from their free homes
to make room for those who need the home more. Besides, the worthless people would now have a choice anyway, so if they don't want to make an effort
screw them. So for those students who do not have anywhere to go or any way of paying their rent and utilities, help them out rather than the scum.
I wont deny that I am indeed biased on this as a college student who will be so far in debt upon finishing that once I do pay that off my go will be
the first thing from Earth to reach another galaxy. Having two children of my own while majoring in electronics engineering isn't something I would
call easy lol. What really about it though is that even with the grants I receive I still have no choice but to take maximum stafford loans in order
to survive and raise my children. I didn't have a choice because nobody would hire me for anything more than minimum wage which meant that would
need welfare assistance in the form of housing and food. So it was go into debt for this education I am working on or leech off of you guys the rest
of my life, which do you prefer? I think I made the most responsible decision and none of you will ever succeed in changing that opinion.
My case as a married parent who's spouse is also in college is of course unique but guess what, there isn't much hope for us. Nobody will rent to us
even with one of us working at a crappy job because those loans and grants can't be relied on as rent and the crappy job doesn't pay enough to
qualify us as possible renters, that's what they all keep saying anyways. We've tried getting into section 8 housing and the will not help us, we
don't do enough drugs or something... Currently and for almost three years now my wife and kids have been staying at her moms and I stay wherever.
Nobody will freakin rent to us and the government will not help us by offering any of that welfare housing, I guess because we are making an effort.
Her mom is all over us about finding a place and I believe she wants me to drop out of school and get a full time job for minimum wage which will
still not qualify us for housing anywhere. The problem is that she is about to move in with her fiancee and then my wife and kids are screwed simply
because we are worthless pieces of crap who are too lazy to go out there and make an effort to be successful... Oh and I almost forgot to mention that
my wife is on the Dean's list and my gpa is around 3.4 - will hopefully go back over 3.5 next year, not too bad for a high school dropout who grew up
in the projects and suffers from borderline personality disorder and major depression if you ask me.
So yeah, there you have it. Our government needs to help the poor rather than just throw money at all the junkies to keep them behaved.
