Retired Stamp set reminder


   At first I thought this was funny...then I realized the
awful truth of it. Be sure to read all the way to the end!

                 Tax his land,
                 Tax his bed,
                 Tax the table
                 At which he's fed.

                 Tax his tractor,
                 Tax his mule,
                 Teach him taxes
                 Are the rule.

                 Tax his cow,
                 Tax his goat,
                 Tax his pants,

                 Tax his tobacco,
                 Tax his drink,
                 Tax him if he
                 Tries to think.

                 Tax his cigars,
                 Tax his beers,
                 If he cries, then
                 Tax his tears.

                 Tax his car,
                 Tax his gas,

                 To tax his ass

                 Tax all he has
                 Then let him know
                 That you won't be done
                 Till he has no dough.

                 When he screams and hollers,
                 Then tax him some more,
                 Tax him till
                 He's good and sore.
                 Then tax his coffin ,
                 Tax his grave,
                 Tax the sod in
                 Which he's laid.

                 Put these words
                 upon his tomb,
                 " Taxes drove me
                 to my doom..."

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What happened?

Can you spell "politicians?" Why would we continue to vote in or re-elect politicians who do this?
