A tax time reminder: You are a slave

A while ago I had a conversation with a friend of mine who had recently graduated from college. He was, coincidently, a Socialist who was espousing the virtues of public schools and Socialized Medicine.

If I do not want to be arrested and I choose to defend myself I will likely be shot and killed.

Government Running Out Of Money To Maintain Roads

Posted March 24th, 2011 by celestrion

"But, without government, who'd maintain the roads?" Who, indeed? With budget shortfalls impacting governments across the country, governments have begun dismantling freeways that cost too much to maintain. So, rather open up road maintenance for bids or sponsorship, of course the obvious statist answer is to build parks in place of roads. What's that old joke about driving on parkways?

As Ohio’s next Governor, my primary mission will not be to “create jobs” or to promise tax cuts 10 years from now… it is simply to get the government out of the way.”
