Cause and Effect

Reducing taxes does "magically" increase revenue, that is, as long as government spending is also reduced.

To discourage something, tax it. Tax savings, tax employment, tax earning money, tax investment -- very discouraging.

To encourage something, subsidize it: subsidize unemployment, failure, poor test results, bad decisions, get more of the same.

We don't need to increase revenue to the government, but if we wanted to, then stimulate the economy by cutting taxes, cutting government costs and regulations, quit the wars, and start trading again. This pro-freedom environment will bring businesses back into the country and they'll all be providing more revenue to the government in the form of taxes and fees.
