The New York Times notes that the federal government is “the nation's largest consumer and investor.” If that's not an argument to drastically shrink government, we don't know what is. ... Some public schools instruct their students to refer to terrorists as “freedom fighters” — but to refer to the Founders as “terrorists.” Yes, America, we are in a world of hurt. ... The Brookings Institution is proposing that 401(k) savers in the top tax bracket be taxed twice — 11.6 percent upfront, then at a rate of 39.6 percent when they take the money out.
