    is stupid. It needs to be discussed.  To base the deference of revenues on the basis of party affiliations or civic participation constitutes unequal treatment

    Why would one penalize people offering to meet the civic obligation of holding a public office by limiting whom they can interact with monetarily? Because of a desire to maintain the pretense that public office is a privileged position, which comes with special restrictions to earn it.

    Funny thing about privilege, it has advantages and disadvantages.

    Federal revenues should not be employed to reward or punish anyone. Since the Treasury can issue as many dollars as needed, the purpose of taxation is to have the dollars flow back (re-venue) to where they can be counted and accounted for. Currency is called that because it is supposed to move. Taxation keeps it moving, circulating, rather than being hoarded or rationed. The velocity of the currency is one of the things the Federal Reserve tracks.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
