    My adult daughter finally gets it. She sees that she is paying about 1/3rd of everything she earns to the federal government. It is slavery.
    Good for her! She must be making well into six figures to be paying at that rate. A lot of people would would be happy to suffer that kind of slavery.

    It's a really stupid name calling he does, and the only originality to it is he mixes socalism with Marxism from time to time, which is all the more silly.

    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.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    No, I don't. But I support politicians who would impose higher tax rates uniformly. Paying higher taxes by myself would accomplish nothing.
