TC referendum: More socialization, less freedom
In my opinion, there are many obvious reasons to vote no to the Texarkana College (TC) Referendum such as the money is not guaranteed to be used in Cass County, but will go into the TC “general fund” and the fact that the referendum actually does not guarantee a campus will be built in Cass County.
However, I would like to highlight some slightly less obvious, but just as important, reasons why this referendum is fundamentally unsound.
The TC referendum is a classic example of the ever growing socialization of our great institutions, as the lines between the public and private sectors become blurred.
The resulting inevitable unintended consequences, however obvious they may be, will be downplayed or ignored, despite the fact more harm will result than any positive outcome.
