Doublespeak and Government

The government distorts words as an attempt to fit its own perception of reality, for example:

Investment = Government spending. What percent return are we getting on that "investment"?

Undocumented worker = illegal immigrant. Not everyone who is in the U.S. illegally is a worker.

Voluntary compliance = What you do when you pay your federal income taxes, according to the IRS. You go to jail if you don't voluntarily comply.

There's more here.
