Monday’s Column: A Taxing Economy

Today’s column at WorldNetDaily revolves around the worsening trend in government idiocy that has our elected officials wanting us to believe (as all too many do) that the economy, environment and our health can be fixed if we’d pay much higher taxes — all of which ends up proving that the only economic boom taxation can create is of the explosively destructive kind.

For the sake of brevity, I’ve narrowed down the discussion to examples involving corporate and gasoline taxes. Give a read to “Saved to death by government” as you recover from your Easter ham, pie and chocolate bunny coma.

You can give it a “Digg” here.
