18. Can't students just borrow $80,000 from their parents?

Incredibly simple solution, and I think Romney is right on that.

But it's an interesting thought to consider how many of the original Founding Fathers were what would today be considered 'deadbeats'. I think even the concept of discharging debt in bankruptcy/Chapter 7 is something that gained hold in the New World way before it did in the Old.

Yet, here we are today, regressing; it started with Reagan. Corporo-Democrats buy right in to the agenda; as they make money on moneylending, too.

Young people should reconsider going to college, as our society doesn't value education or intelligence. We value bombs and killing machinery. If they take on costs associated with college, they are going to be on their own when the bill comes due.
