that then you have no right to a military, roads, bridges, postal service, dikes, dams, fuel reserves, currency, etc. etc.... no wait, and now you're going to tell me that you can get that with sales taxes and property taxes? Wait, those are just other ways that tax a far higher portion of lower/mid income peoples' income as opposed to higher income folks. Sure, sure you say... it's only on what people consume or need to live. Great... as soon as people can just stop paying for stuff, that'll be the life. Hey, people just don't have the right make me pay MY MONEY for stuff. I should get to keep ALL MY MONEY and people should just give me the stuff I want. Yeah.

Enjoy your little subsistence farm out on an island somewhere outside the purview of the USA. We'd write, but it'll just take a long time for that bottle to float all the way out there.
