In response to “stop the government from spending my money” Marko has this to say:
Good luck with that quest. They’re not spending your money, they’re spending your children’s and grandchildren’s money. Your money was already spent decades ago, probably around the time LBJ or Nixon were in office. See, the government can borrow cash just by promising that someone else’s kids are going to pay it back out of their paychecks, which doesn’t exactly encourage fiscal responsibility.
Sad but all too true.
