    So, because some spending is warranted, heck, even mandated by the Constitution in the case of roads, that means that we should just shut up and not question any of it?


    Yeah ok......

    I am not suggesting you can not have a quarrel with spending in whole or in part. I have my issues with government spending as well. I was merely responding to the suggestion of a previous poster and the general thinking of far too many people that taxes go only for waste and welfare. That is not true.

    Much to most of government spending is desirable and/or necessary. I acknowledge that there is plenty that is not.
