My dear fellow Taco Islanders. As my trusted adviser Nol'wan has pointed out, we can have an taconomy where we can be as rich as a place where Tacos grow on trees.
We need to make all Taco Islanders richer.
I have been doing some research and have spoken to a vast array of top taconomists. I have learned about a new theory called trickle-down taconomics.
It is the wealthy investors in our taconomy who cause the taconomy to grow. The more tacos these people have to spend, the more they will buy and the more they will invest.
Every time a wealthy Islander spends money, one of the less rich Taco Islanders profits. In order to encourage these wealthier Islanders to spend more, I have decided to lower taxes (for the top 5%). Yes, by LOWERING TAXES, we will all profit and grow rich.
This is another step in my campaign to reform Taco Island politics - to promote more transparency and honesty in government - to govern in the best interests of the people. If we are true believers in family values, we must make families richer

Hmm.. When I talk about 'family' I mean it in the, um Italian sense.
What have I ever done to make you treat me so disrespectfully? If you'd come to me in friendship, then this scum that ruined your daughter would be suffering this very day. And if by chance an honest man like yourself should make enemies, then they would become my enemies. And then they would fear you.

Hm, I might have been a bit disrespectful... but neither was my daugther ruined nor do I have have a daugther, or children at all, or a wife, or a girlfriend for that matter. Also, how do you expect your "family" to work in the fear-instilling way if it's members are a) few b) scattered around the world? Looking at the "Visitor locations" below we even have a guy from west africa and one from south africa. And there seems to be one in one of those -stan countries too. Ok, doesn't mean they're part of your family too, but expect it to be more or less similarily scattered.
