    But it's just too easy to buy people's votes with promises of welfare programs. Therein lies the problem. It's those type of character flawed politicians that are so carelessly wasteful with tax revenue.
    It's the system itself. Nothing gets done without people getting money for their constituents. This is why spending won't be cut.

    Stop killing jobs and that would go a long way towards solving the revenue problem.

    This is also true. That's how every government budget works.

    I wish it were that simple.
    profit = revenue - expenses. right?

    That's why the welfare class shouldn't be allowed to vote.

    Any other classes that should not be allowed to vote? Or maybe just have 3/5ths of a vote?

    I've witnessed that in business, too.

    I have no doubt we could reduce military spending by a measureable amount and not change it negatively at all. Everything should be scrutinized in this manner.

    Maybe they shouldn't file personally then. I'm not even sure why a business owner would. Can you explain it to me?

    No, but when you vote 98 percent in lock step purely on the basis of race and handouts, it certainly brings into question the theory that all votes are equal.

    The lack of demand is what limits growth. If you don't need to produce more widgets, you won't hire more people.
