I find myself increasingly in agreement with Adam Smith. I think he may have had it mostly right. The piece from Book V on the wealthy paying a little more than their fair share in taxes flies in the face of what current "conservative" thinking advocates.

As for the charter school amendment, those voting in favor of it will reap what they have sown - a two-tiered education system which serves to widen the gap between educational haves and have-nots. It will also serve to put much public money into the hands of for-profit entities.

There is no evidence extant to indicate that educational outcomes will be any better than the current system, either.
