We're supposed to believe that taxes are "contributions," or that government rests on the "consent" of the people, even when virtually no one has ever granted consent in a non-trivial way.
Well, here's another phony government idea, and one a lot of us have probably never really taken the time to examine: political representation. What does it really mean to say so-and-so "represents" me in Congress? We're certainly not using that word in its ordinary usage, any more than a tax could be called a contribution.
Today's episode is drawn from my Government course for the Ron Paul Curriculum.
