Time To Finally Get Government Out Of The Booze Business

Here in Ohio the state government made a big deal, untruthfully, that they were getting out of the business of selling booze. Our family referred to the outlets a "state dairies" and the state did close their (our) outlets and got rid of or reassigned the workers, but they did not get out of the business. The state would never give up their right to nitpick, control and generally ruin anything the public likes because that is what bureaucrats live and love to do. They love to play mommy (dearest).

Liquor outlets (that's what they're called) operate on a very tight margin because the state controls the price They also control when, where and how much any sales that may occur. They also control placement of bottles, any peripherals in the store and what each store may sell or not sell. There is so much more, but I am bored with cataloging how much over reach our government(s) take.

If government wants to be my mommy I want to be able to sue my "mommy" for child abuse.

Why Shouldn't Rich People Get Tax Breaks?

A huge chunk of Americans do not pay federal taxes. Many get refunds for taxes they never paid. Many others get paid in the form of subsidies.

The top one percent of earners pay 38 percent of all federal taxes.

I believe that only those that support our country with taxes should be able to vote. Those that don't shouldn't get to vote. Why should they?

Go through your day and try to find an object, service or product that hasn't been taxed multiple times. We pay too much in taxes for too much government. Too much government that too many people don't want and don't need.

So why do rich people not deserve a tax break?
