Mark Alexander On Taxes, Socialism

One of my favorite sites, RightWingRocker , posted on this column by Mark Alexander. For those of you who recognize the increasing presence of big brother and those of you who think government intervention and stealing our money via taxes is alright, it is an interesting piece.

The deadline for filing income taxes may be April 15th, but the average taxpayer
will not earn enough cumulative gross income to pay for federal, state and local
government spending and regulation until sometime in July. In fact, the cost of
spending and regulation now exceeds $24,000 per person per year.

This figure continues to grow. As revenues to the government continue to increase as a result of Dubya's tax cuts (see The Baron...Are You Tired?) , big bro continues to spend our money at a more rapid pace.

That's why I can't really categorize Bush as a conservative.

Just an observation.

I'm not sure Bush considers himself conservative ... Not like we had much of a choice in either case ... He was a strong candidate who would definitely be more conservative than the alternative ... and maybe that's not the end of the world. Sometimes it's better to let the pendulum swing. That's what the Left did for the last 100 years and look how much of their agenda they got.

Stop on by and check out my rant on the protection of online free speech. I'm pretty proud of it.

You're absolutely right. There was basically no alternative. How the popular vote total was that close amazes me.

I checked it out. You should be proud!!

Proud I am ... and your "one of my favorite sites" comment didn't go unnoticed, either!
