If we stopped paying professors and administrators, that too would make college free.

If we diverted all the money we pay for old people to sit around waiting to die and used it for college tuitions instead, college would be free.

If every person in America were forced to pay $200 per year to the "Free College For Everyone" fund, college would be free.

And oh by the way, all the government meddling that has resulted in college tuitions going through the freaking roof, like federal subsidized loans, everyone goes to college programs, etc....THOSE ARE ALL CORPORATE FREAKING WELFARE.

What law prevents you from doing so?
That wont work. He doesn't want HIS money going toward education. He wants OTHER PEOPLE'S MONEY to go toward education.

God forbid we look at what European countries do RiGHT and implement it here, this is 'Murica after all.
Not so. Community college for 2 years and transfer to a university for the last 2 years.
Take out a loan only for books/tuition, not full living expenses.

In Europe they track students and only those with the grades get "free college". The rest either go go trade school or can go to college but have to pay their way.

You think everyone in Europe gets "free college" ?

There is no "cheating". All the tax laws are LAWS, passed by Congress.

We shouldn't be giving college education to anyone nor should we pay "giant agra" a dime or subsidize any business.

Saying, "Hey, we waste money here" isn't going to want me to waste it in other areas.

College is an INVESTMENT. It's up to the individual adult to make that investment.

Apple products are made in China. Apple should immediately be banned from selling products until their factories are moved to the US.

If the freeloaders would pay their fair share of taxes, they too could fund 'free' college.

So, your plan is to only allow products made here in the US to be sold here?
