No more cake, no more ponies

An outstanding rant today by Sarah Hoyt: We've Come To The End of Cake

When government offers you free stuff while at the same time demanding you pay taxes on the penalty of jail, all it's doing is taking your money, removing its cut, then giving it back to you. ("Nice economy you got here, shame...") Which means in the end you’re poorer, but bureaucrats have more power.
Read the whole thing. Why we're broke, and why it won't get fixed for a long time (if ever), in a nutshell.
