Let's see...Between the Federal, State and Local Gov't...The Gov't confiscates about 60% of what I produce. The Gov't then tells me what size slurpy I can drink. The Gov't tells me how much water my toilet bowl can hold. The gov't in some states like Maryland may tax me extra every time it rains out. The truth is, we're not all that free anymore. But then again...compared to most of the world it's not that bad. We live in a soft tyranny. Some day it may become a hard tyranny if things don't change for the better.
