More Tax Ranting

It's sad in this country that everybody's largest creditor is the Federal Government.
When you are a small business owner, and have to come up with mental magic to generate outrageous tax payments.... it gets quite easy to develop a conservative political outlook.
In fact, I really don't know anyone who has to write large tax checks to the government while still maintaining a liberal outlook.  Think about the small business owners that you know.... what is their political leaning?
It seems that the majority of liberals are those who have withholding in their paychecks, and the conservatives are the ones who have to write out their own tax checks.   
People on payroll have lost the concept regarding earnings.  They think that their take home pay is what they earn, and ignore the huge bite that the government takes from them... right off the top.  They can't conceive that they actually earn their gross pay and don't look at the government's take as their own.
They ignore the outrageous government waste and largess that occurs when bureaucrats spend our money with no sense of responsibility or economy.
At any rate, I have a tax payment due, and I'm pretty aggravated about it.
