Free Money!

As I heard it recently put, our tax code is a horrible mixture of class warfare and loopholes. Our current taxation system came about as a mistake, and there are better solutions to increase tax income while decreasing the burden on the public. These don't increase government power, however, and so our politicians won't implement them.

Here's the really scary part. Nearly half of all Americans are not paying significant taxes, so they're willing to vote themselves more money at the expense of others. Worse yet, many of them have no idea where the money government gives them comes from. They don't realize it's taken from the hard-earned labor of their fellow Americans.

Here's some very scary audio from WJR, Detroit interviews with people applying for stimulus cash. The Republic can not survive this kind of ignorance.
