Re: “Gov. Sanford offers the only rebuke to reckless big government ideology

Manifest Abundance...believe me, it was on national news about the school gym in Dillon, SC about the leaky gym. They also covered how the school Auditorium was condemned. Parents DO pay for the school upkeep--that's what our school taxes do.

Now then, with 10% unemployment, parents are understandably reluctant to chip in thousands to bring an auditorium or gym up to code. Most public schools do NOT have moneyed alums that can foot the bill for new stadiums, etc. And bake sales just don't cut it.

Lastly, our governments have always been involved in our education. I believe our constitution is mum on the Feds helping out. If it were forbidden, grants, scholarships and loans would be illegal. I DO agree with you that the Fed's "No Child Left Behind" program is an incorrect intrusion.

Re: “Gov. Sanford offers the only rebuke to reckless big government ideology

I hear a lot about fiscal responsibility etc, but nothing about helping. If you're already unemployed, cutting taxes for those that those that inherit a million or more isn't going to help most families. If your school has to cancel basketball games when it rains the roof leaks into the gym giving banks bailouts they don't want (like the previous "conservative" administration suggested to congress) doesn't help.

Any fool can be a detractor, (and most fools are) but where's the evidence coming out of the how many year old Sanford administration that they're trying to solve any problems? Or that they even care about their non-employed constituants?
