The hopeless debtor city of Stockton, California, was recently in the news, the sight of an armed raid, courtesy, the armed wing of the Department of Education (who knew?), (notice it’s a cache link as the story is getting scrubbed) for something to do with Student Loans.
It is often difficult to peel back the onion of a debtor—at least the gambler is occasionally romantic as Dostoevsky suggested. The woman in question was not at the residence, and the story has moved on to allege she had skipped out on the family, and now the DOE is suggesting it was not related to ‘Student Loans’ but rather fraud.
I might find that thin gruel from a press comfortable with generating sympathy for the terror inflicted of the man and his kids, but not willing to think it through, but it’s not important.
The issue is sitting right there—please listen Ron Paul Campaign.
Abolish the Department of Education; introduce legislation ASAP to abolish the department and if need be, put something together that declares something short of a Jubilee for student loan debt—some window of chance that a twenty-something can escape a miserable fate. Specifically attack Biden’s efforts to make Student Loan debt outside bankruptcy protection. This is the nature of operating as a reactionary, if being careful to keep some distance from the specifics of this case, put a story together.
Secondly, the imagery from the folk-media as it relates to this story, if they can keep it alive, needs to intertwine the Home Schoolers– also potential targets of the armed soldiers of the Department of Education, just as a student loan debtor apparently is–as was seen in Germany, the family last I heard American refugees of the sort I can actually support..
As no serious conservative or libertarian or ‘small government’ Republican anywhere supports the Department of Education, no matter the flavor–the opportunity to reach the young, marginally employed, student loan burdened 20-something, for the first time in their life, probably, consider politics as a solution to their problems, their interest…who knows, what might be put together.
Perhaps I have just rehashed what I learned about the armed wing of the IRS in the ‘90s, but if nothing else, the Department of Education? The opportunity to unite , rather revive, disparate groups on a notion of abolishing a department is there for the taking.
It would be a shame to let it go to waste.
