We are often told of how we should examine the expenditures of any charitable organization we are considering making a donation to. Ask some simple questions: Is most of the money that is donated to the charity going to administrative costs? Or is most of it actually going to the people the charity is claiming to assist? But can we not ask the same simple questions about our government's use of our tax monies?
How many of our tax dollars go to government administrative overhead costs? I would guess around 80 percent. Suffice it to say that the vast majority of our tax dollars are not being spent for the reasons given for their collection. Like a crooked charity group whose leaders make out like bandits while tossing a little money toward the group's supposed cause, our government's administrators live lives of luxury in comparison to the vast majority of ordinary taxpaying citizens.
