Why not give people the option of only paying for the services which they use, and why not open up market competition for government services?

If they had, we'd be at 1919 standards, and we are not.

Nice attempt to twist my words, but that's not what I said.

While technically, what you posted is true, given the totality of your post that I quoted, you certainly implied that had it not been for intervention in the free market by government, we wouldn't be enjoying the successes, including the low prices on food that we enjoy today. I would argue that had government not interfered with the market, our food prices would likely be lower than they are today. Had government not continually interfered, our agriculture equipment would have been cheaper and likely had changes and enhancements driven by the market more in ways which would have been beneficial rather than what has happened via government intervention.

The simple truth is, with very few exceptions, mostly as are outlined via enumeration in the respective Constitutions and even some of those need not be there, government is not the solution, rather government is the problem.


But then again, that's just MY opinion, for what it's worth.

Ha. You should see the shi$ roads we have in Illinois...

There’s always Somalia. No government or taxes there.

There are, of course, tributes that must be paid to local warlords to avoid being killed/raped...

I would buy a bigger house. Property values are plummeting here due to the existing high taxes and the new ones that are coming soon. No one wants to buy because of it.

Well, I did find it confusing that you posted that after starting the thread. Why did you say no more needs to be said?

What say, C-D posters? What would you do with the money the IRS and your respective states (if applicable) stole from you?
I thought that maybe it was just me. I feel a deep funk for about a week when I think that the govt has shafted me yet again while those Lady Liberty dancers are parading in front of the tax processors who cater to the sloths who breed lots of kids. They get to enjoy govt money that I paid through so many hours of work and endless office politics.
