Those really concerned about funding the state are welcome to donate as much to it as they feel it needs. Open up that purse or wallet and give to the state until it hurts. Just don't hold a gun to everyone's head and give them the "your money or your life" choice of taxation. Call a meeting and pass a plate around. Have a bake sale. The state is there to serve the people. The people do not exist to fund the state.
If the state has a service to provide, then let those who use that service pay for it voluntarily. Stealing in order to transfer wealth to people providing services people are not willing to pay for themselves is immoral.
[F]orce can only settle questions of power, not of right. - Clyde N. Wilson
