When one gets in bed with government, one must expect the diseases it spreads.
– Ron Paul
Have people allowed their favorite Oklahoma politicians and Oklahoma media to completely brainwash them?
Most individuals and all politicians I’ve encountered on the budget issue stop their ears and sing Kumbaya when you bring to their attention the very simple cuts that can easily be made in lieu of taxing gross production or taxing certain groups of people.
The reason why, I believe is very clear.
Stateism. Most have removed their faith from God and have placed it in the state and are very cozy with government being their provider, protector and keeping a close eye on them. Media and politicians will continue to use dangling carrots with programs that have no core functions in government to keep those who put their faith in the state hooked.
