Timely idea-government.
I keed.

To have government we must have revenue. One cannot operate a first class nation without revenue. All the big things this nation has every done, and all the small things this nation has ever done, it did through taxation. The notion that ever lower taxes solves the problems of the nation is simply wrong.

In the 1980s we heard that Reagan was a great president. "They" kept telling us how great Reagan was (I was never a believer). Now the nation has adopted Reagan's core philosophy and use it as a guiding principle, giving it the weight of scripture from on high. Big mistake. Reagan was wrong in 1980s and he's wrong now. Someone should give a Grover Norquist a pie in the face.
