Income Redistribution Day: Like the 4th of July for Liberals
"It's that time of year again. Uncle Sam takes off that gaudy blue coat, puts on his white smock and snaps that all-too-familiar rubber glove into place. And we, the taxpayers, must gird ourselves for intrusions of proctological magnitude and glacial duration by the revenuers...Yes, I want to keep more of my money - because it's mine. But there are people who don't see it that way. The problem with those people isn't simply that they're wrong. It's that they are in charge." - Jonah Goldberg
"Some taxpayers close their eyes, some stop their ears, some shut their mouths, but all pay through the nose." – Evan Esar
LIBERAL THEME SONG
"Be thankful I don't take it all."
"You see, here in America there's a reason why we celebrate the 4th of July and not April 15th, because in America we celebrate our independence from the government, not our dependence on it." - Governor Scott Walker
Walker's comment was very true for much of America's history...Unfortunately, this has become only about 50% true in our time - where almost 50% of the American people are either dependent on the government (tax payers) or want to be the overlords doling out the sticks and carrots to those who are dependent on them. And make no mistake, there are just as many sticks as carrots - sticks which are a lot bigger than the carrots.
"One thing is clear: The Founding Fathers never intended a nation where citizens would pay nearly half of everything they earn to the government." – Ron Paul
