I do think you may have had a brain idea. THe first one. The problem is we're all not contributing for what it takes to run the federal government based upon the enumerated powers in the Constitution. The problem with the politics since Wilson forward, is the federal government is doing what it is not designed to do and the politicians are buying our votes to it to us. We would all be better off if the federal government would only do what it was designed to do, then we wouldn't have constant class warfare and government teatitis.
