Lost in Taxation

Personal Freedom and Power 106:  Funding GovernmentGovernment is not, as some people like to say, a necessary evil; it is not an evil, but a means, the only means available to make peaceful human coexistence possible. But it is the opposite of liberty. It is beating, imprisoning, hanging. Whatever a government does it is ultimately supported by the actions of armed constables. If the government operates a school or a hospital, the funds required are collected by taxes, i.e., by payments exacted from the citizens.  -Ludwig von Mises

Defeating this legislation is essential to preserving the industry and the market forces that drive it.

Great New Book to Checkout: "Spread the Wealth"

There's a great new book out there that anyone who wants a better understanding of the roots of today's fiscal crisis and what we can actually do about it should checkout.  It's written by David Breuhan and it's called "Spread the Wealth: More Haves, Fewer Have Nots."  Breuhan is a money-manager and has taught Austrian economics at the graduate level.  He has a keen understanding of the implications of trade restrictions, high taxes, deficits, and spending and is able to put it in simple terms that anyone can understand.

Washington Elites Face Reality Gap on Economy

While private sector workers across the country are struggling with abnormally high unemployment rates, federal government employees in Washington are likely to be bewildered by the current economic downturn. In fact, a Politico article released today confirmed that about half of “Washington elites” who live in the D.C. metro area and work in politics or policy fields claim that the country and the economy are headed in the right direction—compared to less than 25 percent of the general population. Since the federal government directly employs roughly one-third of citizens in the D.C.

Business Knows More than Obama

A government with moral and legal authority promulgates written rules and universally, impartially and uniformly enforces the rules, which provides a predictable and stable legal order on which to base economic and personal decisions.  The law prevails, not the proclamation or arbitrary decision of a ruler, government bureaucrat, the enforcer (e.g., policeman) or judge.
