Today was like every other day in the United States during the last few decades. Washington taxed more private wealth to generate government revenue. Congress added more national debt to future generations so they could pay benefits and buy votes today. The Federal Reserve created more fiat paper money out of nothing to cover the difference between government revenue and expenses.
The Mob Still Votes
"A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine." ~ Thomas Jefferson
Recently we took our 14-year-old daughter and a friend to the Coastal Georgia Fair in Savannah. It was a small fair with the usual tasty but deadly food and all the rides you wanted for a set price. The girls had fun and I had plenty of time to stand around and watch the crowd to protect my girls from all the thugs and hoodlums in the crowd.
