I had a thought that may have been obvious to some, but for me, it was a little slow at becoming a reality. I thought of the true meaning of taxation, and if it was, in fact, the source for government revenue. I stumbled upon a book online that briefly covered my thoughts in skimming it. Why do we care of taxation? I can see that the money I suddenly can't choose to use due to taxation is a issue we all must tackle. I cannot, for the life of me, understand why we worry about how it is used. In the news lately, anyone with a online associates degree will arrive on the television and protest the use of the public's money in the recent "stimulating" acts of congress. I haven't seen anything that would suggest the money that is taxed from me going to the government is used for anything specific. The instantaneous restriction and subsequent expansion of the monetary system would lead me to see that all that is happening has to be the revenue services of our government are taking our money, placing it into a pile on the white house lawn, and burning it. At the same time, they print more and decide to use it for something that would make them happy. The distribution of wealth is a concept of child's play in that scenario. Someone please tell me that I am an idiot, and that I am missing the elephant in the room. Explain to me what i am missing!
