President Obama says the public is “sold” on tax increases in the debt-ceiling deal. In fact, he even says that 80 percent of Americans support the higher taxes he offers.
Besides taxation being theft, immoral, and pure evil, there is a simple solution to this idiotic problem.
80% of Americans could just write a check to the U.S. Treasury, then shut up about tax increases.
This quote from the linked article is priceless:
“We don’t need a constitutional amendment to do our jobs,” he said, rejecting conservative calls for a balanced-budget amendment. “The constitution already tells us to do our jobs.”
Yeah, the Constitution is what drives excessive taxation, a welfare state, fiat currency, and endless wars. Or maybe it does? Lysander Spooner was right:
“But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain – that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist.”
