TAXATION IS THEFT! Do we actually live in a democracy when the government takes almost half the money we earn and spends it on things they want? They convince you to give it to them because they will provide cheap daycare for your toddlers, educate your children, provide medical care if you get sick, provide a pension and 'Old Age Security" when you retire, and look after your aging parents. As H.L Menken observed, "Every election is a sort of advance auction of stolen goods." 

When I was going to school In the middle of the last century, the only gun violence mentioned on the mainstream media was occasionally about the Boyd Gang, Canada's version of Bonnie and Clyde. Car jackings and auto thefts were rare. Today gun violence seems to be on the news almost every night. Do you think the increasing irresponsible activity may be a result of the increasing responsibility the government is taking. 

It is said that politics follows culture. When I was young, the culture was that everyone expected to grow up to be responsible, productive adults. Today the culture seems to be to depend on the government to fix our problems. How do we change that? 

"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not." -- Thomas Jefferson
