Going Galt / Pulling a Ron Paul (new glossary entry)

Going Galt
Expression for undergoing a voluntary financial strike or decrease in income. An individual might choose to do this in order to protest the amount of money going to the government, or to protest what they feel are unfair taxes (if they earn less, they will be taxed less, therefore hurting the government). The term is taken from a character in Ayn Rand’s novel “Atlas Shrugged”; the main character John Galt leads a movement where the wealthiest individuals leave their jobs for low-paying jobs in order to protest the socialist economy.

Pulling a Ron Paul
As a take-off on the concept of Going Galt, I’ve coined Pulling a Ron Paul whereby an individual can break-through the economic glass ceiling, accumulate a little capital or simply forego it, and head to Washington to fight the system full time on its own terms.
