    Actual socialist Bernie Sanders: No, Obama is not a socialist | The Raw Story

    Democratic socialism (PDF), he explained, “means that health care should be a right of all people,” he said. “That higher education should be a right, kids shouldn’t graduate $50,000 in debt. Which means we should pass legislation that represents the interests of working families and not the moneyed interests. Which means that we should be aggressive at global warming and protecting the environment for future generations. Which means workers earn a decent wage. All of these ideas which people have talked about from Eugene Debs on.”

    Now someone tell me what is so wrong about people having a free education? I agree with 90% of what he says there...I don't agree with the global warming bs but the rest I do.

    If higher education should be a right, then why do those institutions charge so much? Greedy mofos.

    Free education? You mean like an academic scholarship?

    Why must we pay for "the education at the college of fools"?

    WTF are you talking about? You get 13 years of free education. All the way up until you are a legal adult. When the jackass socialist says "kids shouldn't graduate $50,000 in debt" he is actually talking about full blown adults. They aren't children.

    Careful, you're making sense.. The idiots can't compute or fathom a coherent and factual argument.

    Jeebus. I like Bernie. He's an honest politician. He's just an economically inept moron and his philosophy is ridiculous.

    First, nothing is free. Nothing. Second, no one has the right to someone elses services. We call that conscription, or in a more broad way - slavery. It is also against the rights of those who would be forced to pay extra taxation to provide such services by government administration (lousy admin at that. Which means waste, fraud, corruption and ultimately shitty education). Most of all, government run "free" educations squash competition and innovation, leaving the industry paralyzed and ultimately making for a nation of simpletons. It's already bad enough how much of it is happening now.

    Education, healthcare, housing, food.....people are beyond hope.

    I actually know people that think all of these things should be guaranteed rights. Just dont ask said person to explain how it gets paid for. Thats whent he circle jerk begins and it never ends. He'll keep you in there for days herpin' derps. That's why LOLberals are stupid... "goin' on a feelin'"....

    No. Education should be free.To get anywhere in this world you need an education and shouldn't be saddled with hundreds of thousands in debt to get it
    Then what do you suggest to fix this? My mother graduated college 13 years ago and is still 40k in debt to those bastards...I would rather my kids just go to work then go to college to get a degree and end up 100k in debt for it...its absolutely stupid and criminal its like fucking blackmail.Explain to me how we can have free education from k-12 but after that we can charge them 30k a year to get an education and its ok to do so.
