“The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn’t get worse every time Congress meets.”
Government does not create wealth, people do. Our nation’s government was designed to allow its people to flourish, thus creating more wealth, rather than surrendering it.
If government is allowed to excessively drain the resources of individuals, it will limit enterprise, creativity, and resourcefulness – the values that make our nation great and give each of those individuals the tools to succeed. For this reason, regardless of our personal taxable income, we all pay for high taxes.
A limited government requires limited revenue and limited revenue compels a limited government. Your Liberty is only safe if the government is limited.
“By rendering the labor of one, the property of the other, they cherish pride, luxury, and vanity on one side; on the other, vice and servility, or hatred and revolt.”
“The taxpayer — that’s someone who works for the federal government but doesn’t have to take the civil service examination.”
