"Since the end of World War II, the federal government has regularly seized somewhere in the neighborhood of one in every five dollars of GDP -- sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less -- from the productive class for redistribution to the political class .... Yes, there's continuous bickering over how much of the loot goes to which sector of the welfare-warfare state (guns vs. butter), but it's just a rhetorical game of manipulating small percentages and scaring the bejabbers out of the rubes with body counts."
