Well, the Gannett news outlet here in Sioux Falls has an interesting poll up this morning.
"Should the federal government raise the gas tax in order to make up for the shortfall in highway funding?"
As of 8:44 am CDT the Number of votes: 131
Yes = 26%
No = 74%
I would be interested to find out who the 26% are. Not individually, personally, but generically.
I am sick and tired, yeah, even tireder of seeing taxes initiated and raised.
It appears there is some of our community that are in the same boat.
Sadly, this most recent bout with the "economic stimulus checks" should imprint on our minds and psyches, that once a tax is put into place it will never be reduced, nor cancelled.
Too bad our skool system does not teach economics, or comparative ideologies. Too many old people understand the Marxist-Leninist imperative to tax the people for the good of the people.
Socialism, communism, and most "isms" deny any rights to individuals to own property.
Everything, spelled E. V. E. R. Y. T. H. I. N. G., belongs to the gummint; the ruling class. There is a sharp distinction between the elite, and the working classes, or masses.
Evil is always sly and underhanded. As the saying goes, the greatest thing the Devil ever did was to get people to believe he does not exist.
Are taxes evil? Well, the more we pay in taxes to beef up gummint the less we have to take care of ourselves.
How sucky, that we work almost half a year, just to pay off our taxes!
What is it gonna take for people to realize that we are nurturing an insatiable monster?
Our Founding Fathers understood the evil involved and that is why they wrote our founding documents the way they did.
No king, no queen, no ruling class, no career poli-tic-ians.
I agree with Rush Limbaugh who claims that ignorance is our most expensive commodity! How true and prescient.
Well, I guess it all boils down to a case of mind over matter...if you don't mind, it ain't gonna matter.
