Yes, in my world, there is a spectrum of ideas and values. There is no mandate to prescribe to and submit to all the beliefs and ideologies of any particular group. To do so would be akin to joining a cult. I believe in thinking for myself. Thank you.

College went from an institution of learning and a stepping stone to a career to a money making liberal Ponzi scheme, and throwing millions into ridiculous debt (That you can't even declare bankruptcy on) to little to no careers when you get out and being stuck underemployed having to pay all that debt back

Want to Know Why Some Conservatives/Republicans Hate College?


I would imagine for the same reason some liberal/ Democrats hate college. Are you under the ignorant illusion that all liberal/ democrats "love college?"

What you are describing are for profit colleges. These colleges are ripping off students and the government. One example of this is "Trump University." Unfortunately, the Republicans blocked regulations on these colleges.

Are you under the ignorant illusion that RW media isn't transmitting the message, "Colleges are liberal indoctrination centers!" to their faithful?

For that matter, they aren't all that keen on K-12 education, either.

I report. You decide.

This is not rocket science.
No. What's not rocket science is that people who actually believe this stuff clearly have never attended college. As other posters have correctly noted, the vast majority of students are not particularly politically inclined, let alone politically active. This isn't the 1960s. Most students, and this especially true today, are just doing what (they think) they need to do to get that Great Job. For many, unfortunately, that's all higher education is for.
