Its sort of funny, Democrats support government spending under a Democratic administration, and Republicans support spending under a Republican regime. Its not fair that politically well connected insiders on Wall Street, Halliburton, and "green" companies should take so much wealth from the people who earn, through legalized coercion (government spending). Millions of people are suffering, and its because government spending has caused the taxation and inflation that has wiped out the middle class. Government interventions always cause problems that in turn create screams for more... government interventions. However, because of stupid campaign finance reforms endorsed most recently by John McCain, its literally impossible to vote the bums out of office- you always end up with Democrat of a Republican.

The collection of any taxes which are not absolutely required, which do not beyond reasonable doubt contribute to the public welfare, is only a species of legalized larceny. Under this republic the rewards of industry belong to those who earn them. The only constitutional tax is the tax which ministers to public necessity. The property of the country belongs to the people of the country. Their title is absolute. They do not support any privileged class; they do not need to maintain great military forces; they ought not to be burdened with a great array of public employees. They are not required to make any contribution to Government expenditures except that which they voluntarily assess upon themselves through the action of their own representatives. Whenever taxes become burdensome a remedy can be applied by the people; but if they do not act for themselves, no one can be very successful in acting for them.
