In the Federalist Papers Plunder is explained very clearly. It is taking from one person to give to another. Our never ending social programs are a perfect example of Plunder. The government has seen fit to take from the working taxpayer to give to the non-working disadvantaged individual and create more government agencies. This is not the vision our Founders had intended for this nation. We used to take care of our citizens through community, charity, churches, Salvation Army food pantries etc.
We should not be appropriating monies from working taxpayers to support any special interest. The programs are financially overwhelming and the agencies are too many to number. It is time to take a moment to realize what burden the working class is being asked to support.(NSA, EPA, DNR, FDA, OSHA, Homeland Security, FBI, IRS, Planned Parenthood, illegal immigrants placing burdens on all our facilities, aid to victims of crime, disabled programs, food stamps (SNAP), unemployment, housing, health care, welfare, utilities, Obama phones, drug programs, busing/taxis children to schools, computers for all students, free education to foreign students while raising our own children’s tuition. The list goes on. No one checks on outcomes of most of the programs. We need to audit and cut our losses.
Citizens are now we are having to protect themselves against NSA, EPA, DNR, Homeland Security and IRS. Government is too big and becoming too intrusive. We are supposed to be living in a free society not direct our lives to the plow of financial support of social programs. We are to lift people up not make dependent children out of them. Our country has become an entitlement society by the hand of legislators. When are we going to put a time limit on all subsidies?
Stop Legislating the Plunder!
