Comment: Well, not quite.

(See in situ)


Well, not quite.

The Apportionment Act of 1911 came just two years before the Federal Reserve Act, the graduated Income Tax and the first World War. Did the population of the US explode in those two years, so that a lot more congresscritters would have been involved in passing or defeating those abominations? Don't think so.

Adding more scoundrels to government doesn't guarantee a better outcome. The problem is: government is a magnet for scoundrels, who want to rule and rob their fellow men. Decent people have little interest in such pursuits, except insofar as they wish to be left alone by the wannabe rulers and robbers.

Ron Paul was the only virgin in the whorehouse.
