    We wanted historical change, and what the Electoral College gave us was Donald Dork.

    The cost of postsecondary education is much larger than you may think. Hillary had made a proposition to institute a national-program for post-secondary education funded by the US government. That personal subsidy would have pulled a great-many kids out of poverty and into a decent standard-of-living!

    You don't remember that? (Because it is still an option!) Here's how Hillary wanted to do it: Making college debt-free and taking on student debt

    Had that program been adopted more young Americans would be graduating in the future with the competencies that our New & Different Economy requires of them.

    But, no, an antiquated and fundamentally undemocratic Electoral College voting-mechanism erroneously decided otherwise. So, now, OUR KIDS - with parents that cannot afford even state post-secondary public-schooling - WILL NOT BE OBTAINING DEGREES THAT WOULD GET THEM A DAMN FINE JOB AT A DECENT INCOME!

    Biden likely will get around to a law that allows the poorest of our people to better their lives by means of a suitable-and-very-low-cost post-secondary education in a public-institution of higher learning. The question is simply "when" ...

    PS: What does "post-secondary education mean"? Everything - soup to nuts! That is, it covers training at the basic job-level right through all further degrees up to and including a Doctorat! And nothing less!!!

    Every time you mention that, you risk derailing your own thread. Keep that in mind.

    I have an idea, how about send college students to Mexico for education?

    I read it. It sounds like Hillary's plan was promising a lot of free things.

    Basically every line I went down, it was promising something else free, rather than explaining how anything would be changed or policies would be improved.

    LafayetteBis, how many threads have you started so far that both complain about Trump, how the election system is unfair, and the need for more postsecondary education?
    Eleven? could well be more than that, I've lost track by now.

    It does seem like an odd combination of issues to keep combining together and repeating over and over again in multiple threads.


    You do realize that the President isn't supreme dictator and doesn't magically set all the country's policies?
