There are lots of private schools in my home state of NJ with, AFAIK, no government involvement at all - Lawrenceville, Peddie, Hun, etc. And, the quality of education is vastly superior to that of public schools. They're also cheaper tuition-wise in many if not most cases versus the property taxes in that area.

If you believe people should work till they die to pay for a government worker to retire at 50, you're a Democrat. Otherwise, you're a Republican. All other differences between the parties are trivial.
