    whined about this today:

    Here is a thought for you to ponder:

    Do you think it's right for the institution of government to reserve the right to take my life if I do not comply with Obamacare at all? Because just like anything government does, from parking tickets to healthcare, if you do not comply with their coercion, they reserve the right to literally end your life. If you go down the line of non-compliance in order to combat their coercion and extortion, you'll end up in a cage like an animal or with a government bullet in you. And this is an institution people feel is necessary? An institution that reserves the right to end your life for not complying with their healthcare coverage, parking tickets or literally anything else the government says you must do. A lot of people think this example is false or extreme. To you I say, don't pay your taxes and don't comply when they send you more coercion, extortion and summons letters and see what happens to your life. Obamacare enrolled over 7 million people today. Was it voluntary? Absolutely not. You were coerced to do it at the threat of death. Forcing people to do whatever you write on paper, regardless of its efficiency and legitimacy, at the threat of them initiating violence or death is not the proper way to achieve a peaceful and prosperous society.

    And no, he does not explain how he would go about collecting the very, very few taxes he'd be OK with to have a government function at the most basic level.
