Here's some arithmetic for you, very round figures, you can do the exact ones if you want to research it yourself.
People in the United States: 200,000,000. Of these, only 100,000,000 pay taxes of zero or greater. So, every time the government spends a billion dollars, that's 1,000,000,000 divided by the 100,000,000 taxpayers, or TEN BUCKS EACH. Not much, until you think of how fast the Government can run through a Billion - what is it, 10 seconds or so?
- ONE BILLION DOLLARS IS $10.00 PER TAXPAYER
- ONE HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS IS $1000 PER TAXPAYER
- AND... A TRILLION DOLLARS IS $10,000.00 - THAT'S TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS THAT IT COSTS EACH TAXPAYER.
STOP IT! VOTE! KICK OUT THE INCUMBENTS!
