Via David Galbraith, the worst of pseudo-intellectualism.


Interesting logic from the link

"...The United States government, however, should not give any money to help the tsunami victims. Why? Because the money is not the government's to give..."

So by that logic, the govenment should never spend any taxpayer sourced money, as it doesn't belong to the govenment. What is the purpose of taxation then?

The same way 'The People' as part of their contract with 'The Govenment' give the govenment its legitimacy, the Govenment makes a wide range of decisions on behalf of the people.

There are other reasons that could justify the above quote, but I'm a little tired of devils advocate, he's a nasty man, and I dont even consider him fully human based on that article.
