A few will profit from the many...

"When profit is obtained in a just measure, it is naturally legitimate and necessary for economic development. However capitalism should not be regarded as the only valid model for economic progress."

Pope Benedict



"When I say 'capitalism', I mean a full, pure uncontrolled, unregulated laissez-faire capitalism--with a separation of state and economics, in the same way and for the same reasons as the separation of state and church."

Ayn Rand
"The Objectivist Ethics"

The Virtue of Selfishness

"Those seeking profits, were they given total freedom, would not be the ones to trust to keep government pure and our rights secure. Indeed, it has always been those seeking wealth who were the source of corruption in government. No other depositories of power have ever yet been found, which did not end in converting to their own profit the earnings of those committed to their charge."

Thomas Jefferson

So it looks like the borderwhiners aren't only anti-public education, they are anti-Catholic as well.
