"Who's to Blame"

Walter Williams has a marvelous essay in The American Spectator where he identifies the source of the growth in government spending.  In his essay he notes:

Government has no resources of its very own. Moreover, there is no Tooth Fairy or Santa Claus who gives the government resources. The recognition that government has no resources of its very own forces  us to recognize that the only way Congress can give one American one dollar is to first, through intimidation, threats, and coercion, confiscate that dollar from some other American through its agents at the taxing authorities. Politicians do precisely what we elect them to office to do: take the rightful property of one American and give it to another.

He correctly identifies the source of "who's to blame" as ourselves and until we choose to elect politicians who will change direction we are faced with increasing government coercion.
