Half?

What country issues the money you have in your wallet ~ read it some day.

When's the last time you paid for a meal in a restaurant with gold flour ~

Did you ever stop to think that a mere 350 years ago 1/3 of the population were underage, 1/3 were overage, and 1/3 did all the reproducing, with 1/2 of them engaged in work inside the home and the other 1/2 of them engaged in work outside the home.

That means the human norm was for 1/6 of the population to do all the work that might be part of the cash economy.

So, we're up to 1/2 ~ or 3 times as much and you are kvetching?

BTW, Romney made a mistake ~ he criticized the electorate. Walter Mondale (that's Romney backwards) did something similar ~ he promised to raise everybody's taxes.

These guys can't get elected because they don't know how to run for office.

Your whole cloth argument that "1/3 worked inside the home" and "1/3 worked outside the home" sucks.

Today, 1/2 the population lives off the other half, half of those have never held a REAL job, and have 3 generations of parasitic/welfare/taxpayer-funded lifestyles (now, including Illegals who aren't even U.S. Citizens).

The Taxpayer today is FUNDING the welfare state, is taxed and indirectly-taxed to an extent NEVER BEFORE EXISTING in the USA.

don’t forget many who worked inside the home had small businesses themselves, selling items they made, or selling extra eggs or things like that.
