The answer is simple..........Government gets quickly spoiled spending other people's money...........a well that will never run dry.........................
It will run dry, when they eventually manage to kill the goose laying the golden egg. The powers that be will stop at nothing to keep spending our money:

What is equally depressing is our TMO members down under in Australia ( pop. 26,500,00 ) has three of the top unaffordable places to live with Melbourne, Adelaide, and Sydney. I can understand why a good friend of mine finally accepted a job here in the US, he said he could have 2 cars, a home , and more in the Midwest for what he paid for in rent in Melbourne.

Sure we have snow, tornados and more, but a 30 mile drive takes 30 minutes throughout alot of the less populated States in middle America.

Naw, Fabman you can't go from a " Racing Stud " to a " Racing Spud," ha!
Well, THAT'S original.
If I do make it there I will have to sell everything I own, including the shop, tools and racecar, so my racing escapades will only be a story I tell strangers who will never believe me anyway.
