OPM Has a Sell-by Date

Blog: Michelle Obama urges students to seek taxpayer money

“Don’t leave money on the table,” Michelle Obama told students at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia this week, seeking to put as many people as possible on the receiving end of a government check. Nothing builds the Democrats’ voter base faster than the widespread ability to raid other taxpayers for support.  How widespread?

“Almost everyone is eligible for some form of financial aid, and all you have to do to access that aid is fill out this one little form. It’s so simple.”

Simple, as in one-stop shopping, all the better to build that constituency for OPM (other people’s money).

That works, but only until you run out of Other People’s Money.   Usually because Other People have decided to string you up from lampposts in self defense.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
