And we certainly can't have that now can we?
SFF, galting only works if the result costs the govt money. Will you pay your taxes?
Of course I will, but the unemployed auto worker and construction worker that would otherwise have worked for my benefit would not, and would instead be a cost to the government. The auto worker, in particular, was probably a liberal anyway.
Being self employed and seeing my savings being eaten up by having to pay taxes out of it because the economy is so bad hardly any work is coming in now is really getting me down. Before 0 was in office, I was constantly busy and had plenty to pay taxes without having touch my savings. Now with the added burden of Obamacare I fear I’m going to slide from the middle class to ? I guess if that happens to a large enough portion of the middle class there won’t be enough people paying in to the Ponzi scheme and the 0 government system will implode in on itself o that the useless idiots can see what they’ve brought on themselves. Revelation is coming true right before our own eyes.
In Atlas Shrugged, "going Galt" just meant leaving the jobs that propped up the system, and instead working at lower-level jobs.
In my case, "going Galt" would mean that I retire early, and reduce our family's spending accordingly, and have my taxable income drop to the point where I pay much less federal taxes than I currently do.
There's something to be said for cutting back on purchases of stuff I don't really need, and relaxing.
