Tax Code is Killing the U.S. Economy

This article’s headline says politics are killing the U.S. economy but if you read further it says the problem is the tax code.

We know it is much more than that: Taxes, regulations, welfare, propaganda media, offshoring, distractions, human poisoning, the abandonment of the proper role of government and its foundational principles that created the freest and most prosperous nation in history, and more.

Ron Paul on Redistributing Wealth

This is a great quote and so true:

…a hundred years of teaching our young people that government is necessary to redistribute wealth. And they do – they redistribute wealth – the more they try, the more the wealthy get wealthier. It redistributes it upward, and it ruins the middle class.

That is what they have to understand. But they’re onto something and they should be justified in looking at this. But, as a group of people, the millennials are not looking for more government. Only in that economic sphere are they tempted to look at this. There are many others who declare themselves libertarians. They want less government in their lives and they want more privacy and they want [fewer] wars.—Ron Paul: Current Economic System Is Faulty
