People cannot use for their own lives what they are forced to pay in taxes
Prior to 1971 Ohio had no State Income Tax, but somehow survived. The new tax money poured in, and the legislature spent it simply because it was available. Libertarians propose ending the income tax and reducing tax rates across the board. This will mean ending many government agencies and employees.

Evaluate all government programs on a cost-benefit basis. If a program is not doing what it is supposed to do, end it. Unfortunately the current remedy is to increase its budget. Change that.

Abandon the anti-trust suit against Microsoft. Abandon the cigarette damage suit. Don't sue gun manufacturers. These are all cheap ways to collect money to waste on foolishness. I would support ending the State Lottery, since it provides more money to waste. Its only virtue is that participation is voluntary.
