QOTD - Nullification edition

As we join together against a common foe, it is long past time that we started treating each other as human beings, rather than as categories.  We ought to recall Murray Rothbard's refusal to accept that "our enemy today is the poor, who are robbing the rich; the blacks; who are robbing the whites; or the masses, who are robbing heroes and businessmen." To the contrary, he said, "it is the government that is 'robbing all classes, rich and poor, black and white, worker and businessman alike" and "ripping us all off."

From "Nullification; How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century" by Thomas E Woods Jr.

The government has to take that funding from somewhere.  Whether it's directly out of someone's pocket through taxes or handing out entitlements that are worth less because of inflation, it is government that is responsible for this because of it's actions.
