One who intends to leave others better off for his having existed.

Can freedom and economic optimization be simultaneous?

The less people know about how sausages and laws are made


 the better they’ll sleep at night


 


Otto von Bismark


If politicians can’t be bought


and lobbyists only support politically compatible candidates


without expectations of quid pro quo


 


after donating nearly $20 million to federal elections since 1989


why would a homebuilding association


publicly announce a donation cessation following failed legislation


that would have allowed builders to use current losses


to recoup past paid taxes


 


and why was similar legislation reintroduced the next day?
