Quote of the Day
Paraphrased from this Mostly Cajun post:
Taxpayer: A title much of the Democrat Party’s core constituency fails to acheive
Because it’s never a good idea to vote against your own economic best interests, and who doesn’t like “free money”?
Here’s a couple of associated quotes:
A democratic government is the only one in which those who vote for a tax can escape the obligation to pay it.
The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.
Both of those by Alexis de Tocqueville.
