(Natural News) Taxpayers are going to be hit from every side when Joe Biden walks into the White House and Democrats win control of all of Congress after they steal the two currently GOP-held Senate seats in Georgia next month.
That’s because the Biden regime is going to pass out freebies to as many people as possible to secure Democrat rule into the foreseeable future or, at least, until they run out of ‘other people’s money.’
Biden reminded us of this when he reaffirmed his commitment to ‘free’ community college for anyone who wants to go in recent days.
“In the 21st century, twelve years of school isn’t enough. That’s why under the Biden-Harris plan, community college will be free—and public colleges and universities will be tuition-free for families earning less than $125,000 a year,” he wrote in a Twitter post.

And since most families do earn less than $125,000 a year, he’s essentially talking about all young Americans.
As for Biden, he — or whoever is handling his Twitter account — went on to post prose for his pick for secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona, while addressing the reopening of schools safely during the pandemic, and that he wants to double “the number of school psychologists, counselors, nurses, and social workers to address the students’ mental health and behavioral needs.”
Maybe he wouldn’t need to do that if he’d just allow schools to be reopened and families to live out from underneath senseless, contradictory, hypocritical lockdown restrictions.
So — what is all of this Democratic left-wing focus on ‘free college?’ That’s really not too difficult to understand.
America’s college and university campuses are nothing more than Marxist propaganda mills, where students are taught to hate America, hate traditional American values, and believe that our country is racist, evil, colonizing, unfair and unequal.
These allegations are easy to refute, mind you; all one has to do is read our Constitution. Our founders may have been imperfect men, but they wrote and adopted a document that was unique among nations at the time (and still is today) in that it empowered citizens for the first time, not government representatives.
Again, it was a perfect document that was imperfectly practiced, but over time we certainly got more things right than we got wrong.
Minorities in America have more opportunities to do well and get ahead than in any other country in the world — and that’s because all Americans have those same opportunities. In many cases, people of different backgrounds and ethnicities who immigrated (legally) to our country live better, safer and more prosperous lives in America than they could ever live in their home countries.
But today’s academic left doesn’t think so. They believe that America is so awful it must be destroyed and ‘reimagined’ with new ideas they claim would be ‘more equitable’ and ‘fair’ to all. (Related: Health Ranger asks: “What would really happen if college tuition were free?”)
What they’re really advocating, though, is Marxism and collectivism, whereby a few powerful elites at the top take from those who have and give it away to people who don’t deserve it because they haven’t earned it — until that money runs out. Then they become all powerful and they decide what you and I will ‘get’ in the form of government hand-outs, which are never enough to subsist on.
Meantime, these losers will have ruined the economy and the country as a whole, turning the U.S. into the world’s best-armed third-world hell hole. Because that’s what happens every single time socialism and Marxism are practiced.
As for Biden’s idea, generally, of ‘free college,’ realists like outgoing Education Secretary Betsy DeVos knows there is no such thing.
During her confirmation hearing in 2017, the Senate’s sole communist, Bernie Sanders, asked her about ‘free college,” and she argued that “nothing is truly free.”
“Somebody, somewhere pays the bill,” she said. “And the bill is coming due. What we do next in education policy—and in public policy writ large—will either break our already fragile economy, or it will unleash an age of achievement and prosperity the likes of which we’ve never seen.”
Trump unleashed prosperity. Biden wants to repeal that prosperity and send all our young people to ‘reeducation camps’ disguised as free college in the meantime.
