MC It's one thing to have to pay taxes in order to have a government to protect our rights. You can do that easily by paying less than 10% of GDP in combined federal, state, and local spending (like we did up until World War I). It's quite another to have a government that actively violates our rights and consumes nearly 40% of our GDP and *still* accumulates massive amounts of debt.

So if the government takes less than 10% of the national wealth, then it is not theft.

Check.
