“I do not believe that it is the responsibility of the federal government to help fund a college education because herein, our resources are limited and I believe that the best solution is the one closest to the problem. The people within the state, the people within the communities, ultimately, I believe, are the ones who have that responsibility. If you want an education, a college education in America, I believe that people can get it if they are determined to get it.” – Herman Cain
Tsk, tsk, tsk. Cain better check with his backers before he releases talking points because Liberty University, founded by Jerry Fawell one of the biggest anti-gay right wing “christian” Universities in America and is the largest recipient of federal aid to a student body in Virginia recieving more than $445 million in federal student aid a year and calls itself “the largest and fastest growing Christian Evangelical university in the world.”
The Liberty Counsel which operates out of Liberty University is a nonprofit law firm that provides legal assistance for right-wing causes. In Florida in 2008, the organization helped draft and pass the state’s “Marriage Protection Amendment.” It is designated an “anti-gay group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
