The idea of doing absolute homeownership first is going to be a non-starter, as I'd expect it to be generally disliked for different reasons by conservatives (clearing out the criminal and/or low income undesireables), liberals (what do you mean you aren't paying anything for that mansion!), and plenty of others (if we replace property taxes with sales taxes everyone will shop accross the country line!). So on and so forth.
Which is probably why this thread isn't very popular. If you want to tread this path I'd suggest a thread on school vouchers.
