The latest video from the Center for Freedom and Prosperity explains how excessive government spending undermines prosperity. Watch and learn!
As Blayne Bennett of Students for Liberty explains: "Even one hundred years ago, governments were able to finance their economic output based on a very small tax burden. The imposition of income taxes, however, enabled politicians to engage in vote buying behavior."
Of course, you're all part of changing that. As the saying goes, in the old days politicians promised to use earmarks in order to get elected -- now they promise they won't use earmarks to get re-elected.
