“Governments create wealth the same way ticks create blood”

"Governments create wealth the same way ticks create blood” (or “Government creates wealth the way ticks create blood") is a saying that has been printed on many images. That is, government is a parasite that takes and does not create anything.

“Government creates wealth the way ticks create blood” was posted on Twitter by American political activist and tax reduction advocate Grover Norquist on November 21, 2011.

“GOVERNMENTS CREATE WEALTH THE SAME WAY TICKS CREATE BLOOD” (shown on an image) was posted on Twitter by Young Americans for Liberty on April 30, 2015.


Wikipedia: Grover Norquist
Grover Glenn Norquist (born October 19, 1956) is an American political activist and tax reduction advocate who is founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform, an organization that opposes all tax increases. A Republican, he is the primary promoter of the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, a pledge signed by lawmakers who agree to oppose increases in marginal income tax rates for individuals and businesses, as well as net reductions or eliminations of deductions and credits without a matching reduced tax rate.
