Upon what does the Left base its unquestioned assertion that paying TAXES to government equals "investment in the future?" If that's so, why is it that those who INVEST in government retirement schemes such as Social Security, get essentially NO rate of return, while those who invest in private industry reap handsome rewards? Why don't we just outlaw the notion of private savings and investment, and allow people to buy U.S. Savings Bonds and government treasury securities ONLY, since that is obviously THE way to invest in the future? Government does pretty much NOTHING right - and yes, I include the military which, were it not for the dedication of the rank and file soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen, wouldn't be able to defend us...
