Bend Over

One of the common misconceptions about conservatives/libertarians is that we are “pro-business”. We’re not. We’re pro-freedom. One of the things we despise most is the incestuous relationship between government and business – as exemplified in our outrage over the Kelo decision.

Well, around the nation, chambers of commerce have now pitted themselves against the taxpayer. This is the exact opposite of what they should be doing. These guys are supposed to promote business in general rather than being in the pocket of every deep-monied interest.

That means low taxes, assholes.

I swear. Between big business, big education, big senior citizenry and big government, we are being screwed down to the table. But it could be worse. At least the chambers are in favor of tax hikes today, unlike the President and the Congress who are happily raising taxes on tomorrow or the states that are selling future lottery and toll revenues for payouts today.

Time to lay up some torches and pitchforks.
