    First time I have seen this year's. I don't have my numbers handy but I guess it is interesting. I will run my numbers through it when I get home.

    I find most of the website laughable though. It looks like the content was written by a10 year old. Tons of typos and I think they use the word "fair" or its synonyms about 1,000,000 times. Should be a picture of Obama on the banner pouting and stamping his feet with a word balloon that says "IT'S NOT FAIR!!!!"

    When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe
    .. Thomas Jefferson

    The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those
    who would not.
    Thomas Jefferson

    It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save
    one-half the wars of the world.
    Thomas Jefferson

    I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
    Thomas Jefferson

    My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.
    Thomas Jefferson

    No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.
    Thomas Jefferson

    The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as
    a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
    Thomas Jefferson

    The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots
    and tyrants.
    Thomas Jefferson

    To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he
    disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:
    I believe that banking institutions are more
    dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people
    ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by
    inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up
    around the banks will deprive the people of all property - until their
    children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    or the fact that he was a slave owner. He was not a perfect man. No question.

    Social security shouldn't even be on there, that money has been STOLEN starting with Lyndon (beat my) Johnson and the democraps to finance the (not very)GREEEAAT sooosyity. Btw, that has cost us TRILLIONS and the poor that were going to be elevated are STILL POOR.

    I read it in school. Was part of required reading in one of the honor's classes. Maybe I peruse it again, at your humble request :P

    I'll go on a limb and guess the vast majority goes to pay for defense (which should be called offence these days, given our policies) and social welfare.
