I want government out of EVERYTHING (almost, with the exception of maintaining a strong national defense - which they could keep with one ten thousandths of their confiscation of private wealth.)

Well, your heart's in the right place, but that would provide us with a defense allowance of about $ 150.00 per year for each active duty member of our armed forces. So, if everything went to salary (no new or replacement equipment or supplies), we'd have to get them to serve for less than three dollars per week.

Everything is very expensive these days and it's time to start cutting everywhere we can, but we have to be realistic about what we need to spend for an adequate defense.
