Before the U.S.federal gov't...

the British King and colonial governments assessed taxes that provided services. Are you going to deny that the American Revolution wasn't primarily motivated by the opposition to excessive taxation without representation? The U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights created a limited government that "secured" our rights and included the power to tax for necessary services. You say a Ron Paul type government would be so small the gov't wouldn't need to be paid for. You're not being honest. Ron Paul advocates for a return to the limited gov't described by the Constitution and that requires taxes to pay for it.

Previously you said taxes are "theft" and therefore "morally indefensible", no qualifications or equivocation. But because I've pointed out that you're really advocating for anarchy, you're trying to back out of that statement. Why don't you say what you really mean and admit you're an anarchist?
