Tax Guru-Ker$tetter Letter
Saturday, November 29, 2003
Spending escalates under GOP watch - While many commentators, such as Rush Limbaugh, are speaking out about this abandonment of small government principles by the GOP, they are too scared to explain how to stop it. Republican politicians are not going to change their ways unless they are punished for their big spending actions. This can be accomplished by refusing to donate to their campaigns, and more powerfully, not voting for their reelection. They obviously take their constituents for granted, believing that they have no choice but to vote for the GOP incumbent rather than a DemonRat. What they wouldn't like is for their normal supporters to vote for candidates from a party that is very consistent in its support of limited constitutional government, the Libertarians.
Yay for Naysayers - It's a definite sign of a big shift to the left for the GOP when only nine of its US Senators could do the right thing and vote against this huge expansion in the size and cost of government. The DemonRats only voted against it because it was supported by Bush and the GOP. They would have all voted in favor of it in a heartbeat if a DemonRat president had been in charge.
TAX-CUT TRICKLE-UP - As is often said, a rising tide lifts all boats.

The Medicare bill was inevitable - Not for those of us who think the Federal government shouldn't be in charge of medical care.
