I had a gal at work who had a terrible time understanding that the Government (any gov't) does not make any products that it sells for a profit. I would guess that the arms deals are even "subsidized" by tax payers money.

So she had a difficult time understanding that if you cut taxes the money has to come from somewhere else, just like when you up the benefits.

Personally, I still think flat tax at 10%, absolutely no write offs or credits, and an annual balanced budget are the things that will make/break this country. Not towelhats, not bird flu, not Chinese trade. Plain old stupid accounting. When the money runs out, the country closes. Show's over.
