A Damn Good Point...

... from our friends at A Secondhand Conjecture:

The current bailout mania, and the long going practice of spending our way into debt, ought to be considered the highest form of “taxation without representation” as the government is taxing the future revenue of people who, at the moment, can not vote, may not even be born, or who currently are not US citizens.

Couldn't have said it better (even if I had thought of it) myself.

Cue the messianic ethos : "Oh but we're spending their money so that they may too someday exist."
