Why is it churlish nonsense, why shouldn't the government make everyone wealthy and simply print all the money we need to satisfy our debts and then stop issuing any new debt, and simply stop collecting taxes of any kind, it's all so archaic. Surely in our new world sophistication we can devise a more clever way. The culture created by government support of highways, schools, etc is simply an alternative to what we would have done privately if left to our own devices. Look back at who was standing with Eisenhower when he announced the interstate highway system, the big three, we ended up with the automobile based society that they wanted instead of a community based local society and economies. For the record, I am fine with the Bush era
