Charity Begins at Home

Obama knows what's best. He plans to pick your charities for you. Yeah, he'll just tax you more, reduce incentives to give to charities by reducing the charitable deduction and then give government money to charities he picks. I think the ultimate plan though is to eliminate private charities and make your friendly neighborhood government the only game in town. Who needs private charities if you have socialism?

There is also increasing buzz about people intending to "go Galt." I think it's great. If you choose to tax productivity, what can you do if people decide to protest by being less productive? It's not "unfair" as it is being labeled. It's still their choice and the unsurprising consequence of a bad policy call. I can't comprehend why anyone thinks Obama's tax plans aren't an unmitigated disaster.
