that's because they don't use it so the goverment doesn't have any expenses because of it.

It's not sustainable, though. Some day your country, and mine will end up in the ******* because of the huge government spending...

I'm from Norway, by the way.

free education is sustainable.. An educated person is worth much more than the cost to educate him.

Wrong, a highly educated populace results in an highly efficient and prosperous economy.

Also; I tried to thumb you down, but apparently I've thumbed you down too much in the last hour or so.

Thats the same as Scotland.
The Tories tried to take away our free funding, they got told to **** off, they took it out on the English students by raising their fees.

The kind of economy works in small countries like Denmark, but the USA is too large for government aid in college. But seriously I kinda wish I went to college in another country just because I'm in a large amount of debt as it is.

Yes and no.
If education was relegated to states, with Fed providing ASSISTANCE and setting up only minimum guidelines then it could be done.
Atleast in some states.
then states that have it free would get influx of ambitious young people, especially if free education states that you have to STAY in the state for a while after finishing education, so all this ambitious young people drawn to your state would help the economy.
But yeah, feds giving up some power is a pipedream.

You also have to consider the constituents of reps and senators, a lot of older people would not favor having subsidies for college students.

True, so some states would have free higher education, some wouldn't. Some would make a mix of it, making some professions free (as determined with what state needs) and others people could study with paying. If there is too few doctors, students of medicine study for free. If there is no demand for experts of early 17 century french poetry, then you pay for it yourself.
Those states with subsidized education would get an influx of young inteligent, ambitious people, kind of people that build and benefit economy.
States that don't have it would lag behind economically. And would have to change.
People with high education and skills are worth far more to economy then what it costs to educate them. Education is great investment.

But still most people wont want a subsidy, that goes for every state.

I disagree, Cali, Mass, New York just for example have huge support for subsidies.
I agree that support would get mighty low south of mason-dixon line, but economic results talk very loudly. It would change.

America historically was based on as little government as possible - that included some amount of social security. It wasn't until social security reforms in the 1900's that America even bothered with it at all, to be honest. The idea of private institutions doing just about everything in America is still prevalent today, as the American government itself is wholly incapable of doing anything useful itself (take the USPS). Our Social Security system is all backwards. It would be nice if it promoted success in the population, not laziness and incompetence.

TL;DR: America's Social Security System sucks because of the country's history of not really caring about social security until relatively recently. On the bright side, we don't pay a ridiculous amount on commodities (I mean 100% tax on some things is ridiculous).

I got it easy in England too.
My family was poor enough for me to go to University all paid for (and a little extra on the side other than tuition and rent - it's almost like I'm being paid to go to university)

Of course, there is the whole paying it back thing.... But that's only if I get a job that earns a certain amount a year, and anything that hasn't been paid back is written off after 30 years - so I may never have to pay it back at all
