The Tax Illusion

I don't normally care for using deception to change hearts and minds, but I can't help but agree that the discussion needed to return to the library, itself... rather than on a referendum on taxes as a concept. Of course everyone hates taxes, and of course in the ideal world, taxes would be well below the point everyone would like them to be. But reducing all government issues to "Do you want higher taxes?" is as disingenuous as "Closing a library is like burning books."

I rarely think the ends justify the means... but sometimes you have to salute when people are able to cast aside illusion with illusion.
