“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Tax-freedom day

Tax-freedom day is the calculated day of the year after which citizens are no longer working to pay off their share of government spending including regulatory costs at the federal, state, and local levels, and every year it comes later and later because the corrupt politicians who pretend to represent our interests continue to spend money they haven't taken from us yet. 

Well, thanks in large part to Obama's profligate spending, that day fell yesterday July 15. And remember that 49% of adult Americans bear no federal income tax burden whatsoever. The rest of us are paying their share as well as our own.

You'd think that a people who're screwed by their own government this shamelessly year after year would rise up and vote those bastards out of office, but then you would be overestimating the wisdom, and underestimating the gullibility, of the American people. After all, Obama is still in the running for President.
