Well the tax rebates are set to go out Monday in the US.

  • Government: “Out of our concern for you, we are giving you money!”
  • Taxpayer: “You stole it from me!”
  • Government (Looking past you, smiling and waving to the media): “We work to serve the public! Please be grateful!”

“The money is going to help Americans offset the high prices we’re seeing at the gas pump, the grocery store, and also give our economy a boost to help us pull out of this economic slowdown,” Bush said.

I love this long term, forward thinking plan.  Here is what the “refund” is:

  • Americans use that money to pay down sub-prime mortgages, government just gave the banking industry a BIG subsidy.
  • Americans use that money to buy that honking flat-screen TV – Government just caused a massive spike in the trade deficit.
  • Americans use it at the grocery store – Government has just given the Americans the equivalent of  food stamps.
  • Americans use it at the gas pump – Big Oil will thank the ol’ government.

Um…..What about next month?!?!!

Here is the correct economic stimulus package:

  • Abolish taxation agencies wherever possible.  Income tax is to be eliminated completely and replaced with nothing.  Imagine how the economy would improve if the government stopped stealing your money.
  • Abolish the Federal Reserve.  It is an evil institution that controls the issuance of money devaluing the dollars that you have in your pocket which has the appearance of making prices look like they are rising, when in reality the government is stealing the value of your money right out of your pocket, ON TOP OF ALL THE EXTORTION FEES (TAXES) you pay.
  • Read more here.   Ron Paul got it right.  That’s why the establishment annihilated his campaign (HE IS STILL RUNNING!)
  • Abolish most government, wherever possible.  They produce very little.  Their only role should be to preserve a free market, but maybe the free market can fill in the gaps.  I don’t know.  It has never been allowed to try.
