Ransom, in your response to Canetoad you let something slide that has become too much a part of the language -- a reference to "unfunded tax cuts." When a new government entitlement program is implemented, it requires buildings and offices, equipment, clerks and bureaucrats, lights and heat, advertising -- all expenses that need "funding." Americans keeping more of the money that they've earned does not require "funding." We do not have to "pay" for tax cuts, and tax cuts do not have to "pay for themselves." Such language reflects the mindset that what we earn through our own efforts belongs entirely to the government, and that what we keep is some sort of "expense." Language affects opinion, so please crush such phrases into oblivion.
