Taxes that were not here
100 years ago

        [COMMENT:  What does this piece indicate but that we have come to believe the lie that government must run our lives.  Yes, life is more complicated and there are more things for government to referee than before, but not more things for government to micro-manage.  Most of this is not about legitimate management, but about the voracious need for money to pay for things in which government should not even be involved.  Such as education and welfare -- the two primary means of buying votes and controlling the people.    E.

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago and our nation was the most prosperous in the world, had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What the hell happened??!!
