"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Boo-hoo, the tax leaches are losing jobs, while the tax payers are gaining jobs.   Cry me a river.
