“Support Our Troops” But Don’t Tax Us

Leo Laporte, the great tech broadcaster, nails the pro-war anti-tax Right in less than 140 characters:

It surprises me that the same people who say “support our troops” resist paying taxes. Where do you think the taxes go?

Beautifully said! He is right, you’re going to have to pick one, people:

  1. An American Empire and the high taxes/inflation to fund it.
  2. An end to high taxes/inflation and a return to minding our own business.

Choose wisely! And choose soon because, as Ron Paul points out, option 1 will eventually be off the table as we are bankrupted like every Empire before us.
