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.
