My only short rant here (not directed specifically towards the political party that I despise, nor towards the one that I reluctantly tolerate, but to BOTH):
Those of us who collectively create ALL of the wealth (that which, whether deservedly or not deserved sometimes, is to given to non-workers and government workers who do things that are not of particular necessity) could create QUITE a "stir" in this country if we "the productive" (collectively) exhibited some true disciple (by REALLY saving up for a while) and then ALL of us decided to go on an 24 month "Moratorium on Productivity"... - no tax collections from the (usually) productive - no revenue. Suddenly the government has...
...no power! Hmmm, the PEOPLE would have the power...What a strange idea.
It would certainly create quite a bit more "modesty" in the public sector, if nothing else.
I know that there are a lot of people who are offended by this because they believe in the total sanctity of our rulers, so I will cut it off here.
