I don’t do the black market, but I do avoid commerce whenever possible. I’ll do my own repairs rather than work for income that can be used to hire a professional for the same repair work. I have no desire to contribute to an economy that will support Obama’s agenda. I’ll reenter the economy if we restore freedom and democracy in 2016.
One area where I have changed is that I no longer look down on those who cheat the system. That now strikes me as a rational and legitimate choice, both in terms of taxes and in terms of courts. Telling the truth creatively to get on a jury and nullify bad laws is a civic duty in these times when government is no longer of the people, by the people, or for the people. Similarly, bartering when possible to avoid any records of taxable income may be the best possible option for protecting our country from those in power.
You're doing the only thing left to reign in the statists - starve the beast. Deny it's fuel to grow ever larger and controlling.
