Listening to progressives chatter about "free" healthcare and "free" college and "free" wasp nests on your front porch, I keep thinking that the description is all wrong. Government is just a tube that transports money from one spot to another. There is no government money, only taxes paid by working people. Even if it's paid by corporations, the source is ultimately working people.
Government borrowing is a form of taxation. When you borrow, you are spending future earnings. When the government borrows, it is spending future taxes which are future earnings of working people. Who will be working in the future? Not me, at least not for much longer. When I retire, I will no longer be among the class of working people and will therefore simply consume things. It will be up to the younger generation to generate the general fund, generally speaking.
So live it up, kids! Have fun with all your "free" stuff. I shall watch your future progress with considerable interest. While you work multiple jobs to pay for those "free" goodies or perhaps while you comb the ruins of the zoo for animals to eat, a la Venezuela, I shall either be pushing up daisies or sitting on my front porch in a rocking chair with a bottle of bourbon, a shotgun and an ill-tempered cat.
Can we vote for free stuff? ¡Si, se puede!
