I have been saying exactly that for fifty years. The State exists to serve and protect its citizens. Citizens have NO duty to serve the state except in the military or through other constitutional requirements. Examples are the collection and payment of tarrifs and excises, postal fees and tolls on roads and ferrys. Because income tax is now one of the Constitution's amendments, that is another duty that I must fulfill. I am not required to lend my efforts to increasing the size or reach of the Federal government. For fifty years people have been telling me that I'm a rude ungrateful person because of my disagreement with JFK's inaugural address. My response to them, for that entire fifty years has been, 'Screw 'em!'
