I'll let the analogy stand for the moment and simply ask, Shelby, whether you think it is appropriate for the rich to have a better shot at a quality education simply because they are rich, while the poor are relegated to inferior education because that is all they can afford?I'm going to chime in here, Gene. No, it isn't appropriate for "rich" kids to get a better education because they can afford it. That is the reason we want vouchers so desperately. You have stated many times that you don't like the idea of vouchers. Does this mean that you think it is okay for only wealthier children to be able to go to a better school?It is not and never will be about free choice or open competition. It's about abuse of power and the penchant of the "haves" to force their will upon the "have-nots."Let me see if I get this straight. You said this about abuse of power, and the "haves" forcing their will upon the "have-nots." Well, since I am forced to either send my child to public schooling (an inferior education), or to find some way of scrimping and saving to send my child to private school or home-school, all due to the force of your will, I guess that makes you one of the "haves," and me one of the "have-nots," and you are one of the ones abusing the power.
