For me going Galt was dropping out of the corporate scene with the six-figure income and starting my own business and doing what I enjoyed most. My income plummeted - in fact for the first year we had to absorb a lot with credit cards - but my quality of life went through the roof.
You don't have to go to zero to "go Galt" ... just look for more out of life than $$ income.
This is really not a decision that will be made with a lot of thought about the political consequences. It is, rather, a natural outgrowth of the rise of political class (Dem and Rep alike) that seeks to to expropriate money from producers to feed their habit. Most producers are now just going to lie low and produce less in order to attract less attention.
