So I think I walk the line between a straight up American Constitutionalist, and a very liberty oriented Libertarian (definitely Ancap leaning in some of my opinions).

I think I'm this way because of the people I hang out with. One dude is an ancap, and the rest are hardline constitutionalist or states rights Libertarians. It is my opinion that the only good government is small government, and I think shit like Homeowner's Associations, Property Tax, Income Tax, etc, are pretty dumb. I understand the government needs to pay for shit, so I can see why we have stuff like Income Tax, but I wouldn't have much of a problem of taxing sales more to abolish a property tax. It is your land that you pay for, why do you need to subscribe to some older folks who get together on some Monday night to talk about why the Johnson's want to build a deck in their backyard. Yeah, you can choose to not live in a HA neighborhood, and that is exactly what I will do.

Property tax... like I said, I get why, but it IS your land, why pay the government for it.
