Ah tax day… going to a tea party today, and will blog about it later. In the meantime I thought this quote from Thomas Jefferson in 1801 is apropos.
A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.
The sum of bad government?
