Depending on who you ask, now that the dust has settled in the Roy Moore election and Trump has signed a new tax bill, all is either well or awful in the American Empire. It doesn’t matter either way. Sure, I want to save money in taxes, doesn’t everybody, but the tax bill and the Moore election are two reasons why everyone should be thinking locally and acting locally in 2018. Roy Moore winning or losing would not have changed federal power, and throwing some scraps to the masses in a so-called “massive” tax cut doesn’t change the fact that the federal government’s revenue collection should never have reached this point. Don’t take my word for it, just read what the friends of the Constitution had to say about federal taxes during the ratification process. I discuss all of this in the final 2017 episode of The Brion McClanahan Show. See you in 2018!
