You see, your money isn t really your money. It s just on loan to you by the government and eventually they will get it all back from you from inflating the currency or direct taxation or taking half of what you have from inheritance taxes when you die. (Or all three, most likely.) It s difficult to imagine engineering a more dishonest bargain for the individual.None of this - none of it - stops people from waving flags and crowing about how free they are. If they had a good definition of freedom they d see in a minute that their property is under constant attack by the state, its minions, and the hoard of tax feeders who want to plunder you. Some freedom.
