“Yesterday, the U.S. Department of Justice upped the ante in a high-stakes political game of chicken. Lobbying against pending legislation in the Texas legislature which would criminalize any searches conducted without probable cause, U.S. Attorney John E. Murphy sent a letter to a few high-ranking members of Texas’ government warning against promoting the bill and threatening a complete closure of all flights to and from the state.” Revolution is the only solution. A fairly peaceful sort, to my mind, would take the form of a complete and total tax revolt. Not one dime more than necessary to keep one’s home. Outside of that, refuse to pay them anything you can get away with not paying them. Shop online. Buy used. Trade, barter. Make it, repair it. Grow it. Cook it, bake it. Those things, and more, can help you avoid sales tax. Keep income below federal tax line to avoid federal taxes.
