NICK GILLESPIE: Fareed Zakaria’s Right to Pay Higher Taxes Stops at My Right Not To.

We are in debt because we spend too much, not because we make too little as a country. Let’s say it again, this time in bold: We are in debt because we spend too much, not because we make too little as a country.

Fareed Zakaria, who surely makes well north of $250,000 a year, is welcome to give all his income to a government that has only managed a nominally balanced budget a handful of times since we beat the Axis powers.

But can he have the generosity not to include the rest of us who make far south of a quarter-mil a year in his delusion that higher taxes will mean smaller deficits?

Hey, Fareed: The Treasury accepts donations. Make one, and post the receipt.
