Free Lunch?

December 9, 2009

Thomas Sowell’s column produced this thought.

Many believe politicians can provide them with a free lunch, not realizing politicians are no miracle workers.  They’re more like tricksters.   Their greatest trick of all: conning you to believe that you didn’t pay for you lunch, when indeed you will pay a little from your next 30 lunches not only to cover the cost of your lunch today, but the politicians’ lunch as well.  By the time you’ve finishing paying for you lunch today, they’ve signed you up for another free lunch and you’re happy about it and you vote for them again.
