Cal Thomas' GOP cure: Kill public education

Winger columnist Cal Thomas has a recipe for saving the ailing GOP: Encouraging Republicans to pull their kids out of public schools. ---

If conservatives and Republicans support an exodus from public schools as a strategic goal, they will strike at the heart of liberalism, while simultaneously liberating minorities trapped in failed government schools.

It's unclear how killing universal education would help the Republican Party, unless they think uneducated kids are more likely to grow up to be conservative.

Mainly, it's framed as a way to "strike at the heart of liberalism" -- which reveals something we knew all along: that the Republican school-voucher scheme has nothing to do with solving the education system's problems, but is just a politically motivated attack on the Democrats. 

Way to be the party of ideas, guys.
