[Kentucky Republican Senate candidate Rand] Paul has made clear during the campaign that he would, if he could, abolish the Education Department, [and] eliminate all federal funding to education.
TPJ: This would obviously include federal government grants to help young adults attend college. So, basically Paul's position means that only the wealthiest students would be able to afford college without going into major debt at a young age from having to take on crippling student loans.
It's most important role, however, is to step in and help state and local governments' fund education in times of crisis such as now with this Great Recession. That is why Paul's views coinciding with this economic crisis are all the more reckless. If he and others like him had abolished the DoE then this recession would have seen countless schools having to close. That's not the kind of leadership that I think Kentuckians would want.
It is thus my hope that citizens of that wonderful state see that Dr. Rand Paul is to radical to lead them in the federal government. As someone who is so opposed to government as Pauls is, you have to wonder why he wants to be in government in the first place!!
