Longshot, you are correct. There are a lot of low/no-tax folks, who just want it so that they spend it on guns and beer (or whatever else entertains them). I want it, because I believe that a person should not be forced to surrender their income, based on the threat of violence or incarceration. What I would do with it, would be to turn around and continue to help out my community, by doing what is needed to have these services still existing in some form (I would vote with my dollar for a lot of modifications to how these services are provided, but still, the essential services I still value). You lack personal freedom when you are not able to chose how you will utilize the fruits of your labor. The more that government demands of you in this way, the more interest they have in how you manage your economic life, thus the more they are likely to meddle. This meddling then extends to your social life, because your social life has an impact on your economic life, and on the economic life of others. The latter impact is not felt, usually, until the state starts to experience a certain degree of economic hardship.
