    To all who are in favor of 'small government,' I want to know what you mean by the term.  What big programs are you in favor of, what are you against, and what do you think the highest tax rate in the United States should be?

      I am simply against the violent nature of the state, which probably means taking out huge swathes of the government since nobody would voluntarily contribute to the vast mal-investment going on. But in principle, you guys can do whatever you want as long as you don't force me to participate, or take my property. So that means the highest tax rate should be 0%.

        Innersmith, you often elude to the violence of the state, (I'm not necessarily disagreeing with you here) but who are pulling their strings?

          The state is inherently violent by definition, but currently the major governmental powers are simply the mafia goons for the banking cartel families that have been running the world for thousands of years.

            Yes, re the goons. But i don't necessarily believe that state are inherently violent, protecting goons, yes.
