…if so, you need to post a small sign next to wherever you will fill out your ballot. Ideally, nicely framed or embroidered to make it special. It should contain these words.

The Federal Government Has No Money of It’s Own

Whoever is promising you new beneficent goodies is attempting to make you think that your beloved federal government will give you something nice if you just elect them to office. The cost of what they promise will come out of your pocketbook because the federal government has no money of its own. Remember the stimulus Nancy Pelosi and Donald Trump are arguing about? They are not raising it out of their own well endowed funds, they will raise your taxes to pay it back.

Every promise will be paid for by the taxpayers. Every bright idea. The only thing that makes your taxes go down is when regulations are eliminated, departments are eliminated, tasks are eliminated to make the government cost less to operate. Donald Trump is dumping regulations as fast as he can. As a successful businessman he is deeply aware of the problem of over-regulation, and once a regulation is on the books, they are hard to get rid of.

Once in office, members start thinking of themselves as “the ruling class”. At first they may feel grateful to you for allowing them to enter the august halls, to assume important elected office, but as time goes on they start feeling entitled, and so very important, and reporting back to you becomes a task, which they promptly push off onto subordinates, and the reports become less frequent as current affairs become more of interest.

America now divides itself ever more sharply into two classes, the smaller of which holds the commanding heights of government, from which it disposes in ever greater detail of America’s economic energies, from which it ordains new ways of living as if it had the right to do so, and from which it asserts that that right is based on the majority class’ stupidity, racism, and violent tendencies. Here I am quoting from Angelo M. Codevilla’s lovely book “The Ruling Class: How they Corrupt America and What We Can Do About It.” It was published in 2010, with an introduction by Rush Limbaugh and is available as an inexpensive paperback at Amazon.
