The most revealing thing I’ve read today:

October 13th, 2007

An editorial in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel contains the line:

The Legislature was elected to create a spending plan for the state.

Untrue.

Legislatures are elected to govern.

Sometimes that involves spending money.

The evil assumption that spending money is government’s main purpose is one of the reasons why big government and its many accomplices must be resisted at every turn.

    “The evil assumption that spending money is government‚Äôs main purpose is one of the reasons why big government and its many accomplices must be resisted at every turn.”

    Exactly, since it leads to the conclusion that the other purpose of government is to collect money from people in the first place.
