Absolutely correct, way to often. That is the true premise behind income, property, sales, etc. tax (revenue gained is only secondary). Add to the equation fiat, and it all increases exponentially.

    Mr. Hamilton was the single greatest contributor of intelligent discourse in the founding of out nation. Would that we had such men today.

    An excellent stand alone statement from a man who was probably one of America's original traitors. Hamilton foisted central banking on us and hung Americans for refusing to pay the resulting taxes. One of the greatest crimes in American history.

    And Hamilton should know, the central bank he helped to establish nearly bankrupted the nation.

    One star for a commonsense statement, a thumbs down for a monocrat socialist short lived.
