Here's a random idea: if all these "Tea Partiers" and similar minded folks hate paying taxes so much, let's make a deal with them: they can stop paying taxes, and in return, they stop using anything supported by taxes unless they pay fees for their use (this may mean additional fees for some things for which fees already exist).

So, if they want to use any roads or sidewalks? They get to pay a regular fee. Otherwise they have to stay home. They want to call the police? There's another fee. They want to buy food? How about an extra fee to make up for the subsidies they aren't paying into. Oh, and there will be a regular fee charged just for breathing and drinking water, since taxes pay for enforcing pollution laws. If they want any emergency services, they'd better be ready to pony up as well. They'll probably need to get an extra surcharge on most of the goods they buy, since taxpayer money helps the rail industry as well.

Oh, and they'd better be willing to start paying a regular fee for GPS use, and extra fees for any sort of telecommunication. Satellites aren't cheap after all.

Huh, I guess that sounds suspiciously like taxes. Only, you know, more expensive. Funny how that works.

Don't forget the local library. They'll need to pay for that too!

Oh, there are plenty more things, as well, but I figured I'd made my point ;)

My, Ben, how anti-Libertarian that sounds. XD

Come on, it's only human nature for people to want more for less, namely because it defies science and there IS a vast majority of people who believe in god (you know, more OUT of less.) >.> But seriously, I can agree with the tea-partiers being obnoxious... just, more about other things.

Why is it anti-libertarian? It essentially privatizes the entire government! Isn't that what the Libertarians want? ;)

XD You seem hostile that they want to have society cost less money. TTnTT

Anyhow-- I can't speak too much for Libertarians either, they aren't the right fitting glove =_= So I must acquit the poor sobs. So, how's the new job going? I hope you like it a lot!
