Dean calls it again. And as usual, the man behind the curtain is -- you guessed it! -- rich people trying to take your money! We now have an economy wherein working people pay taxes (and the rich pay some, too, although less and less and less and less) to subsidize big businesses, which decrease wages, and to cut social services we need.
At least it's not the Medieval Period, when the Lords and Kings ran the show and lived it up while demanding taxes from the poor serfs and craftsmen, you know, as "protection money" and for other services, which were pretty meager ... wait, maybe it is a lot like that.
