L. Neil Smith at JPFO - Neil brings his Maidenform Bra essay up to date. Wanna be eight times as rich, overnight? Get rid of taxes and regulations. [jpfo]

I want to keep the arithmetic as simple as possible, so I'm going to begin by assuming that we've somehow eliminated all taxes, and all economic regulation, and that a similar peaceful revolution has occurred at the state, county, and municipal levels, as well. If, for some perverse reason, you personally desire more government, you may feel perfectly free to adjust your percentages accordingly. As the great libertarian teacher Robert LeFevre put it, "Aim at zero -- if you discover that you've accidentally abolished the entire government, well, you can always have it back by next week with a couple of phone calls."
