AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

"The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."
-- Adam Smith
I grew up striving to become one of those evil rich people thus having the ability to take care of my family. I never expected help from the taxpayers and have gotten nothing. I pay for the services I received by paying taxes and contributed to my SS retirement supplement over my 35 years in the business world. I expect to help take care of people in my community not yours and I expect a return on my investment in SS, not having that SS fund used to fund other govt. functions. I see no value in sending my money to D.C. so that a politician can take that money and spent it on social programs that don't benefit my community. I can do that myself locally without getting a middleman involved.
A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.
