It's time to vote again.
Once again you my fine American friends have the opportunity to cash in.
Vote for your favourite politician, you know the one that promises to spend more money, and of course, promises to take less of yours.
"Democracy will last until the public realizes that it can vote itself ..... ?(wealth)? from the public largesse." Alexis de Tocqueville
You can't tax the rich, you can't tax the middle class, you certainly can't tax the poor.
You cut expenses.
People get cranky if you do that.
So... you do....
Good luck with that.
If only someone could come up with a better system.
