Those who equate Big Government and a Great Nation did not learn that from their grandpappy, unless maybe he was Lindon Banes Johnson. LMAO!!!!!
But then it is very possible your grandpappy tried to explain the OXYMORON ; Government Efficiency to you, , but you failed to comprehend.
""A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you have away.""
I'm ok with shrinking government as long as the vast majority of shrinking comes out of the military and military spending. Lots of workers a Northrup Grumman, etc only vote Republican because of the hand outs they get. It's servitude!!!
America is NOT a democracy, dummy.. The founding fathers prevented it from becoming one..
Go learn something and THEN try and post something intelligent...sigh
"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!"
The US can't even implement completely socialized medicine. We're nowhere near communism. Social programs do not frighten me. There have been social programs from the very start of this country. It is the whites in the woods telling themselves that they are patriots for resisting taxation. I suppose it's appealing if you are among the whites in the woods. It just looks like ignorance to everyone else.
I don't agree with you here at all. The progressive tax system was around in my WWII era grandpa's day. In fact, it was much more progressive then.
If you are self-employed and make 250k a year, you are still able to shelter more than the average family of four makes in a year.
