I'm all for you here. That was the point I was trying to make a few days ago. No taxes, except maybe for a military. You can donate money to whatever cause you believe in. The money you ask, "where does it come from?", will come from those interest organizations you speak of.
As for eye for and eye, I disagree with this as well. I missed it the first time I read the post. But everything else he said is right on. I don't have time to commit fully on those but I'll do my best to later.
