I have been reading and watching TV and I knew that there was a discussion about raising taxes, and with more and more spending it was becoming sort of inevitable. But I still did not expect to find a person, who would feel ecstatic about paying more taxes.
But AR is like a sample of our Universe, and I ran into Stewart Penn's blog post Higher Taxes make for the Happiest People on Earth And then Tchaka Owen in one of the comments on my blog said that he would rather have small State income tax in Florida (God save the sinner!)
It is beyond me why some people want to pay more taxes.
Of course, I understand that I am simplifying things, but isn't it that bigger and stronger government means weaker We The People? We are basically only balancing the power. Take from the people and give to the government, or take from the government and give to the People.
The problem is that the stronger the government, the less democratic is the society, the less strong are the People. It does not matter that democrats are supporting the erection of a strong government. Strong government is always a monster.
When people assume that paying "slightly" higher taxes (I love that "slightly") positively affects the lives of The People, they may be confused. Some medical procedures are painful. But the result is worth suffering the pain. However, increasing the pain does not add anything to the success of treatment. Unless you are a masochist, you do not need extra pain. If you have extra money, give it to good cause, but why beg the government to squeeze more? Enjoying pain? That would be a strange way of experiencing an orgasm.
And I bet you thought that less taxes - more orgasm? He, he, he. This is not what's in store for us. And some are already moaning... I read long ago that women cannot experience orgasm when raped. With taxes... maybe only men can?
P.S. BTW, there is no tax structure and/or amount of the tax increase, that can cover the unbelievable spending by this administration. So, grandkids, and great grandkids: do not fool yourself with "slight" increases. You will have to work hard and pay, and pay, and pay back what one charismatic social experimenter spent with such eager...
