Government does not produce revenue it consumes it

Quote of the Day   From Ronald Reagan

“The principles of wealth creation transcend time, people and place.

Governments which deliberately subvert them by denouncing God, smothering faith, destroying freedom, and confiscating wealth have impoverished their people.

Communism works only in heaven, where they don’t need it, and in hell, where they already got it.”

“Government does not produce revenue it consumes it“.

Address as Governor of California 1974


“Yes, the deficit doctors have their scalpels out all right, but they’re not poised over the budget.

That’s as fat as ever and getting fatter, What they are ready to operate on is your wallet”.
