Actually Michael, Ron's analogy is much closer to the truth than was your belligerently snarky reply. That is because government spending on education, roads, and such used to be done by direct, private spending. But having government do this spending has added much more expense to get the same thing done. Collecting, gathering, storing, securing, and counting the money raised costs money long before that money can be spent on any public (formerly private) good.
