Nope that isnt how I play. You can have a good national defense without spending 1 trillion dollars a year for army bases and nation building over seas.
I already told you above you cant get rid of ALL taxes but you can get rid of income tax to start and when we get somehow fix the social security and medicaid we can drop that too.
Its good to have police but we dont need anywhere near the amount of police we have on the street. BTW that is covered by property taxes not the national government.
Roads you can have a small gas tax like what we have now to fix roads and bridges. But instead of that money going to fix the roads it goes to the dept of transportation and just disappears in the big government bureaucracy.
I can go on and on. The governments job is to provide national defense, coin and set the value of money, do infrastructure, that is really about it. It doesnt cost 3 trillion dollars a year to do these things. Really the tariffs, gas taxes, and the other small means of income can cover all this you do not need an income tax and inflation tax and all the other big government taxes to do this.
...this is just parroting information the Government provides.
"For every $1 Billion of total federal spending...
Every tax payer has to pay $4 on average
550 Million in total"
