Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago and

* our nation was the most prosperous in the world,

* had absolutely no national debt,

* had the largest middle class in the world

* and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What in the hell happened? And Why?!?!?!?!

More “Food For Thought”


(In 1995, July 4 not only commemorated the birth of our nation, it was the first day the average American could start working for himself because he had paid his fair share of taxes. Last year Americans for Tax Reform determined that Americans worked until July 11 (53 percent of the year) to pay their fair share. At the presently accelerating rate, in about 35 years we will work all 365 days a year to pay government employees to protect our freedom).
