[What happens if the modest proposal is never considered?

The federal government has already established a sovereign religion. This religion lays words (obligations) upon the people in the name of a multitude of organizational objectives.

They have maintained transfer payments through shady accounting. They borrow 4 dollars for every 10 they spend.

The religion of big government (il)liberalism is a false religion.]

Summary of text [comment] pages 84 and 85

[Here is a modest proposal.

Everyone in the nation should pay a 25% income tax.

5% goes to the federal government for civil and criminal courts plus defense.

The remaining 20% must go to institutions within the person’s state.

These institutions may include churches, charities, plus any other non-profit organizations designated by each particular state.

Let the people put their money where their mouths are.

Let their choices and amounts be published on the internet.

All other federal transfer programs should cease within 10 years.

All monies held in special accounts for particular purposes (for example, so-called trust funds, which are all empty) should be returned to the individuals who paid them.]
