Quote of the Day

In light of the so-called stimulus plan (which I don't think will 'stimulate' anything positive), I thought this quote from The Patriot Post particularly timely:

"There is no part of the administration of government that requires extensive information and a thorough knowledge of the principles of political economy, so much as the business of taxation. The man who understands those principles best will be least likely to resort to oppressive expedients, or sacrifice any particular class of citizens to the procurement of revenue. It might be demonstrated that the most productive system of finance will always be the least burdensome." ~ Alexander Hamilton (Federalist No. 35, 1788)
