The reason for the tax day Tea Party protests is simple, but the media doesn’t get it. It isn’t about taxes so much as it is about the consequences of the out of control spending in Washington. The only way to pay off that debt is to a) increase revenue (which would require continually rising taxes with diminishing returns) b) borrow money (which just moves the need to pay off the debt till later) or c) Print bogus money (which doesn’t work). None of these things are good, and these inevitibilities anger and scare us. Young people like me are especially concerned, as the favorite way to deal with debt of the selfish Boomers and Xer’s and Yer’s seems to be to stick us millenials with the bill-after having coddled and spoiled us into patheticness, making us generatio Rx and the “trophy kid” generation-insuring that our future is not as good as you’ve had it. Well, I won’t stand for it. This out of control government spending, and government in general, has got to stop. That’s what these protests are about.
