Perhaps all taxes should be optional. However, if you chose not to pay them under current tax law, then you have no access to anything that taxes pay for.
No use of Hospitals receiving any federal funding. That takes care of most of them. As far as I know, all US physician residencies are paid federal grants. So no access to doctors either.
No hiring of employees that received education in state or federal funded institutions. Primary school, high school, uni, if an employee attended any of that, they cannot work for you unless you pay taxes.
No use of the public infrastructure either. No roads. No telecommunications regulated by the FCC. No TV. No use of national or state parks.
You can leave the country, I suppose. Good luck getting anywhere without using the roads though. Or getting on a plane without using a federal or state funded airport. Or getting on a boat that is not in a government funded port. Maybe you are a good swimmer. If not, I hear Canada is nice. They might have taxes too though...Mexico then. Damn - Mexico has taxes too? Better figure out a way to swim to the Bahamas then.
Also, good luck getting your money out of the FDIC insured, bailed out bank. Or the money you have in stocks insured by the SIPC. Or the federal reserve notes you have in your mattress. Try to redeem any of those without the government requiring them to do so. They might just tell you to pound sand...
I guess your wealth could be in gold, but good luck carrying that across all the private property (since you cannot use state owned property) to the border without someone deciding that they might want to take that gold from you as you cross their property. Gold is sort of heavy too, by the way. And don't think about calling the cops when they are robbing you, because they won't come to your rescue. Maybe you have a gun and can defend yourself...I hope for your sake someone else doesn't come along with a bigger gun..
I hope you are not hungry, because that food in the grocery store didn't just magically appear; it got there on those roads or rail tracks that you cannot use. Since you cannot use the roads, you cannot use anything that got to you by way of the roads. Maybe you live on a farm and grow your own food...
Or thirsty. I guess if you have a lake or stream on your property, you might not die. Maybe you had a well drilled. But don't turn on your sink hooked into the public infrastructure. Can't use that anymore.
I guess we could develop an ala carte menu for those who opt out of taxes. You want to hire someone with a public education? Sure, just share in the cost of it. You want to get water from the public infrastructure? Sure, share in the cost of that too. Want to use the roads? Sure - just a pay the fee to use them. Need to go to the doctor? Sure, just share the cost of his public education and publicly funded residency.
Wait - sharing the cost of all of the services the government provides - that sounds like paying taxes!
What a quandary.
Maybe you should just wonder at and appreciate all of the things the rest of us provide for you and send your check off to Uncle Sam with a smile.
If all the millionaires are leaving California then who is buying their houses?
wanna be Millionaires... pretty much most of Hollywood packed their bags starting back in 2000-2003 or so and started to move to Nevada. That is why so much (and too much) construction was put up in LV and Arizona. Lots of NorCal SV tech millionaires moved to Reno/Tahoe. Yes.. they do visit CA at times... but like so many natives.. makes no difference... many are happy today away from the rat race.
Most of the nice areas-ala- San Diego, SF, LA, and so on are mostly people from the Northeast and Midwest anyway. So its not like they're doing anything different anyway. They're simply moving... again.
FL has other flaws-like lifetime alimony. Hulk Hogan had to pay 70% of his fortune to Linda Hogan and she is shacked up with a 20yr old kid in his -now her house.
While prenup may work, who knows with judges tossing many aside. Tiger ended up paying 100 million dollars to his ex for a few years of marraige-that is just insane. Tom Cruise's prenup with katie Holmes, but the gold digger got him through child support. He is reputed to have agreed to pay 33k a month plus all the child's expenses. I mean if he is paying all the child's expenses, why pay 33k a month to her-she is an actress?? But at least he escaped from alimony.
Apart from the humidity, Florida beats California in every way.
ha ha! No way. I grew up the South and whenever we went to FL, we could barely wait to get back. Mentioning the weather is a gross understatement: Its absolutely miserable. The vast majority of the state is utterly flat and boring.
Sorry, I'll take Cali any day of the week over FL. But to each their own...
We used to have fun at Daytona Beach. There's some interesting areas too. But the vast majority of the state is a hole. I remember we would spend 12 hours in the car driving down ( gas was 89 cents a gallon then) For approximately 90% of the drive there was NOTHING. As in it was flat, and there were billboards advertising firecrackers and oranges 100 miles from the store. You'd literally see signs that said:
" ONLY 45 miles away from Billybob's firecracker, souvenir, and walnut log store!!"
I remember when we finally did get to the beach that being outside from 10:00AM to around 4:00PM was miserable. 95 degrees and 95% humidity.
Lastly, most Southerners do not view FL as the South: Practically every other person from the Northeast moved down there.
Say you make 20 million a year and your ex wife gets half. Can you live on only 10 million? These are the hardships rich people have to deal with. Please, for God's sake, have some compassion for these poor people.
Good for him. More room for us. Maybe he moved to somewhere that gets miserably cold... like Maryland or something.
What is that? A remote control snow shoveler? I remember when I lived in the Northeast for a few years the first time it snowed and the boss sent me out to shovel the walk ( I had never done it before) I took the long handled shovel, held onto it facing my stomach, and got a good running start. I hit a large crack in the sidewalk and the handle went right into my stomach. I've hated snow ever since.
FUCK THIS MORON! He just gave up HALF oF HIS WEALTH+ ++++ for cheating on his WIFE.
If you can't keep your dick in your pants, don't get married, pretty simple strategy for keeping most of your wealth. I guess he just had to have the super model white wife, is this the ultimate goal of every black man to marry a white women?
These are just some of the famous ones:
