"I am 21 years old.
My parents worked tirelessly to send my 3 brothers and I through private schooling while grossing under 100k annually, combined.
I got good grades in high school and attend NoName U as a history education major.
I chose to take out student loans knowing I’d face high interest rates from private loan companies.
I have a 3.89 GPA as a senior and receive zero government aid while others at this institution are barely passing with the help of a government handout.
None of that matters though, because I chose the condition I’m in.
I don’t want a handout because what’s the fun in having something given to you? I thrive for the challenge of making something of myself. Many a “big businessman” started as the little guy.
When I graduate I’ll face nearly $60,000 in student loans and a dismal job market for education majors.
IF I get employed I’ll be underpaid and underappreciated, but I don’t care.
I revel in the success I earn for myself.
These are the decisions I’ve made and I’ll stand by them and pay my debts.
Because at the end of the day I’ll be happy with who I’ve become through hard work and perseverance.
I have two loving parents who support me and 3 older brothers who encourage me to achieve my dreams.
I am thankful for everything I have.
I AM THE 53%!”

Must really be a bummer to be a Republican kid in this position cause instead of the usual “You’re all idiots!” the only thing you can really say is “I’m an idiot!”

How can an unemployed person with 6 figure debt be so smug? Oh I see, it’s because she’s discovered a new strategy that nobody else knew about called “rolling up your sleeves.”

Honestly had no idea Republicans loved affordable public education so much, at least that’s one issue that unites us all. Oh shit, wait, you only like it in the context of making yourself look frugal and virtuous?

Was there ever a point between two big spoonfuls of dog food when you thought “Man, I live in the most affluent society in human history, it’s a shame I’ll have to work until I drop dead”?
