+b- dubz The NM lottery scholarship covers all the tuition but the 1st semester, but the state universities have "bridge" scholarships for that 1st semester.   The academic standards started out low, maintaining a C+ average, but as the public employee unions have been extracting their monopoly rents, the required GPA as risen to a B-.    BTW, coops and non-profits are corporations too.

+Coyote Osborne you got one thing correct, we pay taxes around the same level as socialist without receiving any of the benefits for those high taxes. Double screwed, we are...

Don't throw away a minor chance to weaken the state's military power while empowering the people because of semantics and ideological absolutism.

Vote for the lesser evil?   Been there, done that while the state and its cronies have only grown.   If I vote, it will be for principle alone.   No more compromise.

Why is it that those who argue for conservative memes don't even understand the basics of politics and political philosophies? to these people "socialism" is "bad" or "Marxist" (a laughable statement) yet, the US used to be the world leader in mixing socialism and capitalism and when we did, we were the true world leaders. Now, under fraidy cat conservatism we are sliding and sliding down to the bottom - by almost every measure. 

We tried, in the beginning of this country, fire fighting by subscription. It was a huge failure. We finally decided that "socialism" or the government owning and operating fire departments was the best solution. So good that most people take it entirely for granted and would protest dismantling it. Same for public libraries, public schools, national and state parks, the military (although, we have destroyed our once self-sufficient military and now use "contractors" at a huge additional cost burden), prisons, and infrastructure like roads, bridges, damns, etc. (which we have starved to death by cutting budgets while outsourcing work to for profit companies, instead of using government employees like we used to do). 

Add to that the shifting of the tax burden from the wealthy, including wealthy corporations, to the middle class and the poor, while cutting social safety nets to enable deeper tax cuts to the rich - and we are left with the disaster republicans have built. 

I like Senator Sanders who advocates for government and governance FOR THE PEOPLE - good paying jobs with insured pensions, infrastructure rebuilding, and a season of benefits for CITIZENS that will rebuild our tattered middle class.

+Ilia Gourianov I'm sorry, but my troll-to-English translator isn't working so well today. I can't figure out what that crap you're spouting is even supposed to mean.
