Quote of the Day, 5/30/2013

A wise man (named L. Neil Smith) once said that without government, we would be 8 times as wealthy. The government (at all levels) takes half your income in taxes, products cost twice as much due to regulation, and cost twice as much again because the producers are paying taxes (on their earnings, on the supplies they buy, and the employer matching portion of payroll taxes).

And what do we get in return? Roadz, wars, and a prohibition-fueled crime wave.
