“Shared Sacrifice” ?!

I see a lot of sacrifice going on, but I don’t consider it noble. It’s nothing more than legalized theft. And I see absolutely no sharing. The dishonesty of this whole scheme of welfare redistribution is quite literally without limit. -Dr. Michael J. Hurd, Ph.D.

Politicians talk of the need for “shared sacrifice.” The translation of this means: Those of you who already pay taxes will now be required to pay more in taxes, so government programs may stay in place and continue to expand, despite a declining economy.

What about the politicians? What is to be their sacrifice? They live off money entirely taken by force from other people. They live for, and by, the power granted to them by those who produce, and who are compelled to give half or more of what they produce to these politicians.

What do the politicians contribute to the process, other than lies and manipulation?

Those who gain the money of others are not being asked to sacrifice or give up anything, while those who give up their income are being told to give more.

By what twisted logic is this considered “sharing”?
