and, if you choose, your civil contributions which will make it into a conversation.

government services

The receivers (most of us) want more government than the providers (taxpayers) are willing to pay for.

The solution is borrowed money.

The agents who have facilitated this delusional shennanigan are the politicians.

The technique that has been used is to tell people that the small amount that they have paid into things is sufficient to provide for the larger amount that they will take out. It is not.

Yes, I understand what Benjamen Franklin called the miracle of compound interest. When I say "the larger amount" I mean after the miracles are factored in. It is still not enough.

The right's solution to this problem is to say that they will not ask those who have money (most of us) to pay more. The left's solution is to "hope for a big check."
