Wise Wednesday

Do you consider yourself a citizen or a tax payer?

What’s the difference? Does it matter?

A citizen is someone who has an ownership/equity stake in his country. He identifies himself with his country and gladly supports it and sees taxes as a necessary evil. His welfare and his country’s welfare are connected. A taxpayer is like a renter, without an equity stake. He doesn’t see his identity and welfare connected to his country. He grudgingly pays his taxes and is hyper-critical of how they’re used.

We now seem to consider ourselves as a nation of taxpayers, not citizens.

When did the shift begin? With Saint Reagan’s “I’m from the Government and I’m here to help”? Did you laugh at that, think it was funny or just a BS pandering? Do you know that when he was Governor of California, Reagan was supported by the John Birch Society and every neo-Nazi group in the state?
