FREEDOM ISN’T FREE—OF DEFENSE COSTS, SOCIAL COSTS, OR TAXES:
We have become a “glass-half-empty” society:
Those on the Left oppose taxes because of defense-spending, while those on the Right oppose taxes because of spending on education, energy, environment, healthcare, welfare and retirement.
We believe America is “exceptional,” yet we decry the costs of what economic infrastructure sustains us. We hate taxes.
This shared, American sense of “entitlement” is the intended message of the Good post. It’s too bad we don’t seem to get it. But at least we remain entitled:
“Freedom isn’t free: we just expect someone else to pay for it.”
