Here is an example, in the form of a bumper sticker found on no less than three cars in the parking lot of my office:
“SOCIALISM IS FINE...UNTIL YOU RUN OUT OF OTHER PEOPLES’ MONEY!”
The corollary of this, of course, is “CAPITALISM IS FINE...UNTIL YOU RUN OUT OF YOUR OWN MONEY!”. Which is a lot more likely to happen than running out of the aggregate taxable wealth of an entire nation. And therein, you might say, lies our current problem. But my guess is that none of those bumper sticker dudes (although, to be fair, they could be women) have taken that fairly simple logical step. Just...just think, people. Just for a minute.
