11. Give Them More

A: Did you get your Official Sample Ballot?

B: Yes, with the Voter Instructions.

A: How are you going to vote?

B: Same as ever, by mail. All it costs me is a 42-cent stamp.

A: I meant, are you going to vote for or against the new taxes?

B: Against all of them, of course.

A: But we need new taxes to pay for highways, schools, and prisons.

B: We've already voted for new taxes to pay for all that stuff!

A: That's true. Where did that money go?

B: Our legislators spent it on first-class travel all over the world.

A: They are having a good time with our money.

B: So when are we going to stop giving them more?
