The rural shack is the way to go.

Don't have much money in it, and it's almost "judgment proof"
Keep all private assets private, as much as possible.
Grow food, and preferably have a water source(spring or well) on the land.

They don't have much to tax you on, don't have much they could take from you, and you are not supporting the beast.

I've been in this mode since 1994.
