Those are some heavy hitters. If Amash has them there for inspiration, he may need to glance up a little more often.
EPJ readers know about the "slippery slope", and Bob Wenzel has reported on Amash's "I Am Not Going To Take Anything Off the Table" followed by the Double-Down.
Now, to start the new year.....one of Amash's first tweets indicate a continuation of the slide down crap mountain:
I agree with that. “@jhm65: @repjustinamashWhat we want is fair taxation and help for the vulnerable.”
— Justin Amash (@repjustinamash) January 1, 2013
And Amash agrees?
Here's Rothbard on the idea of fairness in taxation:
"There can be no such thing as 'fairness in taxation.' Taxation is nothing but organized theft, and the concept of a 'fair tax' is therefore every bit as absurd as that of 'fair theft.'"Does Amash also believe that government has the ability to provide "help for the vulnerable"?
Government does nothing of the sort! It perpetually grinds the vulnerable into the dirt.
Amash needs a Rothbardian refresher.
Fortunately, The Mises Institute has a great online course starting 1 week from today. It's called: Rothbard: A Life Lived for Liberty and the instructor is the great David Gordon.
Bob Wenzel and I will be attending.
Amash needs to join us.
