Cody, I am a die hard liberal but I have to say you are wrong. Everything can't and should not be given. The prosperity that the state is enjoying now should be shared with everyone and not just a certain groups as it appears to be right now. I commend you for wanting to further your education but it is not the responsibility public to pay for it. If a person doesn't have the drive and fortitude to work for what they want, chances are the won't get it anyway.

Cody you say you should not be going into debt to get an education. I fully agree with you. The answer to that is WORK.. You as a young person live in a state with MILLIONS of jobs to choose from. You need to get one of those jobs, save your money and pay your own way. Our country is now full of kids in debt becasue the Government decided to pay your wat and in doing so they have saddled the youth in this country with billions of dollars of debt before they get their first job.

Its time the youth in this country Grows Up and learns to earn it before you spend it. Our country is 18 trillion dollars in debt.. but you want them to pay your way???? How about you pay your way and avoid becoming a kid with thousands of dollars of debt. There are billions of jobs that do not require a college education.. AND they pay well.. I have a relative who is a lineman in Kansas.. Makes BIG college education just a High School diploma..

Cody Your mother and father gave you life.. They made the descision to put you on this earth. A new car comes with a warrenty.. You Cody came with a life that is yours to do with or to fitter away with as you see fit. The fact you think the Government should pay your way shows you are not capable of taking care of yourself. You have choices. But you seem to want the Government to pay your way. I say shame on you. 50 years ago your Grandparents didnt look to the Government to pay their bills.. You should not expect them to pay your way either. If you want something EARN it. You will feel much better about yourself later in life if you can look in the review mirror and see how you were able to support yourself and pay for your own education. Taking is the easy path Earning it is the path a real man takes. Don't become a taker.. Work hard, earn what you want and become a maker and a much stronger person for doing it yourself.
