Taxes and Narcissism

As the rest of America seems to forget the effects of increased military spending and tax cuts in the Reagan years, Robert over at Lawyers, Guns, & Money hits it directly on the head in terms of taxes. I find nothing as stupid as voting for a candidate on whether he/she is going to reduce taxes or not. The idiocy to me is sheer - do you still have to pay taxes, even with the tax cut? Are taxes ever going away? And, as I've said before, taxes aren't the source of pure evil in this world. And I, like J, can't believe that people are so stupid as to think a "tax cut" now while spending increases will never catch up with any American, ever, as so many of the Republican politicians and their base seem to believe.
