Gubmit's job is to steal from the people to spend on something they think we need. It is an evil concept, to say the least.

The founder's of this country knew what gubmit would become unless strong protections were put in place. Despite these protections, gubmit is out of control.

Here's a novel concept. Let the people keep 95% of their money and let them decide what to spend it on.

5% would be about the right level of tax needed for the only constitutionally dictated Fedal Gubmit roles of protecting the borders and promoting interstate trade.

The first thing the Democrats did was to stop the Republican practice of keeping "ear marks" (aka "bribes for more campaign contributions") and their sponsor's secret. At least now we all can see what is in a bill before it comes up for a vote,unlike the lying, theiving Republicans who kept it all hidden like a back alley crap game.
Let's stop the spinach subsidy too, okay?
