This review is from: The Greedy Hand: How Taxes Drive Americans Crazy and What to Do About It (Hardcover)
I am intrigued by the reviewer who stated that we don't appreciate the many services that government provides to us. The reviewer makes "a" point, but misses "the" point. The point is that American's do not freely choose those services. For example, I'd rather not have the FTC taking my tax dollars and using them to chase down value producing entities like Microsoft. I do agree that the people who ride in the cart have responsibility; however, I am concerned about the erosion of respect for private property that causes many to believe that their need is a claim on my earned assets. Electing a politician into office is not a license to confiscate property and redistribute it among those who have courted the politician's favor.
