Something to consider

Something to consider from a time before we became a nation that oscillates between fascism and socialism; a nation that allows government to trample on more and more of our property:.

Until about 1910, excepting only the period of the Civil War, the cost of the federal government was met almost entirely by customs duties and the tobacco and liquor taxes; and until about 1910 the cost of state and local government was met by the property tax, supplemented somewhat by corporation taxes, license fees and death duties.

Insatiable Government, Garet Garrett
