“People say, well what difference does it make if it’s General Motors that you’re dealing with or the US government you’re dealing with. Both are big enterprises, bureaucratic enterprises; aren’t you just as badly off? There’s an absolutely fundamental difference. General Motors cannot get a dollar from you unless you’re willing to hand it over. It cannot send a policeman to take a dollar out of your pocket. The US government can. That’s a fundamental difference. And as a result, I don’t believe that big business is the kind of threat that big government is.” –Milton Friedman

And I believe in freedom, it isn’t freedom for the government to take 40% of my income out of my pocket and spend it on things we through our political mechanism have decided on, but I as an individual, you as an individual have no control over.” -Milton Friedman
