From Patterico, guess which government gave Nidal Hasan a shit ton of money after his arrest? Do you even need to ask? Only government employees could get away with this. Anyone in the private sector would be canned immediately, because, holy shit, why the hell would we keep paying them.
Patterico did the math on how much he got paid per victim. The government habitually aids our enemies, because government is necessarily evil. That's our tax dollars that were stolen from you and me under threat of arrest and given to a man who killed the people who volunteered to protect the nation.
The government is not your friend. It is not our protector. It is our enemy. It is our master. And we are its slave. It's getting to the point where people are going to stop complying, as there seems to be no logical reason to continue contributing to our own demise.
