NAME CHANGE

Every day we hear about government aid, government subsidies, government this and government that.  All these government aid, subsidies, etc. mean that money is being given away. Some people think that the government has an endless supply of money and no one is paying for this aid.

I've been thinking about this for quite some time and would like to see some changes.  Instead of using the term "government", we should say what it really is.  Maybe, if we heard about "taxpayer aid", "taxpayer subsidies", etc. it would hit home where this money is really coming from.

Actually, "government subsidies" are really "taxpayer subsidies".  We, the taxpayers, are sending our money to various governments - city, state and national, so that they can in turn pass the money on to those in need or the pet projects of the politicians.

Won't you join me in calling it what it is?  There should be no more government spending.  It should, from this day forward, be called taxpayer spending.

What do you think?

Amen Sister! Hubby & I were just talking about this before dinner tonight. The government has special people to deal with those of us who want to *call it what it really is*... It's our money, not the government's. Those are OUR TAX DOLLARS! It's a real shame that we can't have a say-so how our money is spent once paid to the IRS. Democracy, my patootie...

The money that is TAKEN from our incomes is staggering….I just sold a building for a nice chunk of money, but guess what…one Uncle Sam got his mitts on it…it's not soooo nice…unbelievable. The lo-fo voters have no idea that it is our money going to fund things that we don't want it to…..probably some of them! This makes me sick…time for a march on Washington…or, protests….Our money is taken to line their pockets!
