Beware of What You Ask For...

Question: Why has government become so intrusive?
Answer: Because we've asked for it.

Way back on March 7, I blogged about why we have the government that we asked for. In this post, Captain Ed makes the same point about our income tax structure. From the post:
"This points out an unfortunate dichotomy among
Americans who want reform without incurring a cost. "
Things like our tax structure don't just occur. They grow over time because we ask for them or because we fail to prevent them.
