The dirty secret: government is simply unaffordable. “Any political leader prepared to deceive the electorate into believing that government spending, and the vast system of services that it provides, can go on as before – or that they will be able to resume as soon as this momentary emergency is over – was propelled into office virtually by acclamation.” Telling the pipple what they wanna hear is a winning political strategy, but it doesn’t pay the bills. Unfortunately, the majority will only figure that out when it’s too late. Until then, gimme some free sh-t….

A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.

The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

Exactly what Ron Paul was saying. Should have listened to him when you had the chance.

Nearly ALL of the DC sleazebags get elected/re-elected by promising freebees and kicking the can down the road. Then they turn around and say, “It’s for the chhhhiillldddrreeennnnn.” And the stupid sheep lap it up.

This is why I’m hoping for secession to work out.
Makes sense to downsize and get out from under DC control.
