By 2000 that dollar was worth less than 4 cents. Why?In 1960 we paid our medical bills with cash and they were affordable. Today insurance companies pay the bills and they are outrageously expensive. Why?There is no money in the Social Security trust fund. The govenment has been spending our retirement funds since 1965. Why?The national debt has increased every year since 1957. Why?In a democracy 51 per cent of the people can vote themselves a government benefit and send the bill to the other 49 per cent. Even worse, special interests representing 1 per cent of the people get government cash by robbing the other 99 per cent! Why?The simple answer to these questions is politics. It has gutted democracy as a form of government.What if we limited our democracy to those services and policies that 90% of us approve of instead of just 51%?What if we allocated seats in Congress by occupation rather than geography so we would be represented by people from all walks of life instead of just lawyers?What if we bankrupted the drug dealers instead of locking them up?What if we educated our children in publicly-funded private schools that competed on quality and offered dozens of curriculum choices?What if our state governments saved and invested 5% of tax revenue each year and eliminated any need for taxes in 56 years?Government does not have to be incompetent and corrupt. It can be rational, fair, and honest. Read this book and find out how.
