Subject: For whom should I vote? ‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑
October 22, 2002
Every two years folks run for office and seek my vote. ‑Those who hold the office use the free mailing privileges that they vote themselves to tell me how much they are doing for me at my expense. Those mailings, of course, I pay for. Interestingly, they never seem to write me a list of all of the ways they have increased my tax burden.
The tax burden on the average American is about forty dollars of each one hundred we earn.
I am going to vote against the folks who promise to help me. ‑
Government help is like a blood transfusion from my right arm to my left arm with a leaky hose that runs through the politician's pockets. ‑Government cannot give me what it has not first taken from someone else. I am tired of being that someone else.
What is the best way to stimulate the economy? ‑Stop bleeding the taxpayer to death.
