The Conservative's Case for Higher Taxes

The conservative movement is akin to a dog chasing its own tail. They just spin and spin with the believe that if they are persistent enough that one day they will catch the prize. Now they have spun so much that spite has trumped reason to a point where even their core values and believes contradict one another. For instance...

Fact #1 - Conservatives believe in small government. In fact, "small" is too big a word...they want a teeny weeny government. One so small they can "drown it in a bathtub."

Fact #2 - Conservatives believe that if you lower taxes that it will actually increase the revenue into the federal government. They believe this works every time it is tried.

Do you see where I'm going with this?

Just using their own reasoning, it seems clear that if cutting taxes brings in more revenue into the government, then raising taxes would therefore lower the amount of money flowing into the Fed, thereby shrinking government. So, if you are a filthy rich conservative the clear patriotic thing to do is send all your extra money to the government. That is, if you truly do stand by your principles of small government...
