There’s a quote from some House Rep. in 1910 or whenever the Federal Income Tax Act was passed, he said that the income tax only applied to the wealthiest 1% in the country, and there was no one in his house district that earned enough to pay the tax, so he was voting for the Income Tax.

100 years later, look where we are now.

It’s totally a bait and switch, you’d have to be a complete moron to believe anything that comes out of Springfield.

I say this often, but people just aren’t cynical enough anymore. You can point to countless anecdotal evidence to the contrary and they still believe what politicians tell them. I guess it’s just easier for them that way.

Just more reason to be glad we’re leaving next year.
