Democracy and Power 103: Government Money

In general, the art of government consists in taking as much money as possible from one party of the citizens to give to the other. —Voltaire (1764)

The money taxed and spent by the politicians comes from the labor and ingenuity of millions of working persons. Politicians spend other peoples’ money.

The politician transfers money from productive people to favored special interest groups.
