Saving America From The “Make Somebody Else Pay” Mindset

The thing is, when did it become moral in the United States to take away the honestly EARNED wages of the American people at the whim of a politician? When did honest work suddenly become a asset to be used to remove money from one person and transfer it to someone who won't work (I won't say 'can't' because they have a safety net right now). Why should the American people be taxed for what they don't approve of? Why should the weight of government be placed on those who oppose it? There is no moral imperative better than the Bible: If a man doesn't work, he shouldn't eat." It was good enough for Jamestown, it's good enough for now. No more taxation!!
“I don’t know what ‘moral grounds’ you think you’re standing on, but as far as I am concerned, what you’re saying is very immoral…”

I was an interview guest last month, and the radio talk show host was asking me about the looming fiscal cliff. In the midst of discussing how our government must cut spending, the host had noted the title of my latest book – “The Virtues Of Capitalism, A Moral Case For Free Markets” – and after a few minutes of discussion, asked “do you mind if we take a phone call, Austin?”

Sometimes that...
