"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority ... the Constitution was made to guard against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." - Noah Webster

"There is no worse tyranny than forcing a man to pay for what he does not want just because you think it would be good for him."
-- Robert A. Heinlein

Who Really Pays?

Leftists and statists live in a world of non-reality where they think they can believe in stuff that isn't true until the whole system comes crashing down on them.  The problem is, they want to drag everybody else down with them.

Maybe it's news to you, but corporations or companies, don't pay taxes.  Never have, never will. You can create the illusion that they do on paper, but it's an accounting gimmick that masks the reality of what is actually happening.

Milton Friedman explains it well.  I wish I had the entire lecture.
