Nobody likes to pay taxes - well, that may not apply to liberals but on the cuff, most people don't like to pay taxes. I have an idea for a new federal tax that might be a little better received by some and possibly a way to begin to pay off our very large national debt. Why not have a government run lottery and maybe even some government lottery scratch-off tickets? This way, if you wanted to pay that extra tax with the possibility of maybe getting an official government "kick-back" all you would have to do is go down to the local Piggly Wiggly and buy yourself a ticket. Those that didn't want to pay any extra taxes would just simply not buy a ticket. In addition to cash prizes, you could also win things like a night in the Lincoln bedroom at the White House, lunch with the President, a ride on Air Force 1, a beer party on the White House lawn with the President and Vice-President, instant enrollment into social security or maybe even a seat in Congress. The kicker though, and it would take a while for the citizens to figure it out, would be this: all lottery tickets would cost $100.00 each and the biggest cash prize would be $5.00!
