Basically Ron Paul is for eliminating the TRIBUTE that it forced from every citizen to the wannabe royalty in DC.
Thank you for the answer.
State tax is on the states, of course. Let the states handle those matters you mentioned.
But to continue being the "greatest nation on earth" those states would have to pay someone to keep the army - just to name one thing.
Surely that is your state taxes going to a federal purpose? Question remains how many more federal tasks that state taxes will have to fork out
Perhaps even enough for the state tax to reach a level where it makes no difference if you pay federal tax as now or state tax in the "Ron future".
Seen from Denmark - which isn't the capital of Sweden - it seems that some of the things you really want the federal government to keep their grubby
hands off would be something like the defence of the Texan borders.

The federal government has so many black money holes that its not funny. With all those black money holes sealed off through the elimination of nigh
useless agencies and basically stolen funds, the agencies that actually have use and necessity will require a drastically reduced budget.
Military DEFENSE (NOT the Orwellian "defense" that is common usage now, which is actually the military OFFENSE budget), high courts, etc, need only a
fraction of what is now being given to run just fine.
Ron Paul is not for anarchy. He is for REDUCED government, and I dont think any sane, rational person without bias can say that the US federal
government is NOT a bloated, corrupt, for-profit travesty that needs a major overhaul.
He is also for giving back power to the states, as was originally intended. The runaway, boarderline rogue, federal government must be chained and
placed back where it belongs; OUT of the states business, and OUT of dictating citizens everyday lives.
