The thought of the founding fathers was that any money gotten by the government from taxation was to be used for the government to function to serve
the people. Thus, the military, the police, and the schools are mandated to that end. What is not, is the Department of Education, Planned Parenthood,
ACORN, etc. Those would be socialist entities that suck off the government like a tick on a dog.
Socialism, in it's ideal, is that all people should earn equal pay no matter who they are. Medicine should be government operated, and so forth. To
that end, heavy tax burdens are laid upon the backs of hard working individuals and successful businesses where that wealth is then transferred to
those in siciety who don't want to work hard for it. It's called wealth distibution, or rather "spreading the wealth around".
The end result of Socialism is that the desire of the hard working people is lost as they give up. The entire nation then stagnates and falls into a
rapid depression. This happened with the USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics), and led to their downfall.
In America, wealth is created by hard word, imagination, and effort. When heavy tax burdens are lifted, the result is an expansion of the economy, job
creation, and success. When people are allowed to keep their wealth, they inspire those coming up behind them to do as they did and gain wealth.
