Reason #1: The Arts Will Have More Than Enough Support without the NEA

Reason #2: The NEA Is Welfare for Cultural Elitists

Reason #3: The NEA Discourages Charitable Gifts to the Arts

Reason #4: The NEA Lowers the Quality of American Art

Reason #5: The NEA Will Continue to Fund Pornography

Reason #6: The NEA Promotes Politically Correct Art

Reason #7: The NEA Wastes Resources

Reason #8: The NEA Is Beyond Reform

Reason #9: Abolishing the NEA Will Prove to the American Public that Congress Is Willing to Eliminate Wasteful Spending

Reason #10: Funding the NEA Disturbs the U.S. Tradition of Limited Government

”That to compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical. . .” Jefferson, "A Bill For establishing religious freedom."


You follow up stupid with yet MORE stupid???

They are not “liberals” or “progressives”. They are conniving Marxist parasites who use government force to steal and then enjoy the property which labor, business and investors have worked to create.

It's from the Dumbfuckistanian language. It's kind of hard to literally translate.

You stupid fuck. And yet you prove - AGAIN - why you know nothing about this issue and shouldn't be pontificating on it.

Most art subsidized by the state is for PUBLIC installation - or are installation projects by noted artists which is not 'for sale' per se. It's meant to be seen by large numbers of people and then is often dismantled.

It allows tens of millions of people to see, learn, grow, and study art who would not be able to do so if only those who could afford to "buy art works" had access to them.
Thanks from imaginethat and Hollywood

"PUBLIC installation" is not in the Constitution regarding spending taxpayer money. A duck knows this.
