If there were no taxation at all, I could afford to live on my own right now with one job instead of trying to balance 3.5 jobs. (The "0.5" is TSK Jesus Freak). I currently make at one of my jobs around $10.75/Hour. Which brings it to $430/week most months there are four weeks, so I'll make about $1,700 per month. This more than covers my expenses. $800 of that is my current bills and about $650 towards a studio rent. $250 surplus per month isn't bad. This assumes that I will make this much with little taxation. Little taxation will most likely cause a decrease in the cost of living and wages at the same time. Most things will be much cheaper due to the overall burden of taxation and regulations. This is why I do favor any policy change in the direction of no taxation, Trump wants to reduce taxes, so I support that policy change to reduce taxation, but did I voted for him, no, I was close to writing in myself or Adam Kokesh but voted for Castle instead. Taxes do have some seeable benefits, but there are a lot more hidden costs to taxation and regulations. Roads are a good example where most people that favor government intrusion in their lives for the roads. It is easier to put down roads when the road builder has the authority to trample's people's property rights, but this puts a cost on the individual property owner. This is one of those unseen costs of using force to put roads down. Another hypothetical point is that it reduces innovation of the transportation system in the United States. If government completely stayed out of the transportation system and only intervenes when property rights are infringed there might have been Teslas would be driving around 15 years ago, which this is all speculation. Governments don't create anything, all they steal is money from the citizens; this is why I'm an idealistically a Voluntaryist - All human interactions must be voluntary, this is the purest form of Libertarianism. As a practical standpoint, I would just give a lot more state control and funding from the state and have the federal government just to worry about its Constitutional duties, instead of trying to do every possible thing to everyone. The government in its current form will always violate the rights of the individual. Governments are collectivists in nature, even though the founders of this nation tried to avoid this very thing it is important to note that they couldn't even prevent the expansion of government. The Civil War was more of a war on individuals than anything else. The Civil War locked up the states and the states can't fully succeed unless they are powerful enough to stand against the most powerful military force the world has ever seen. The only one who can save humanity is Christ alone, those who put his/her trust in Christ will have everlasting life. I urge you to think about life's toughest questions. There are some good resources to go to besides the Bible which one could learn about Christ, Answers In Genesis and Grace to You are two great ministries that helped me to become a much better Christian. But I will let you decide on that because I can't force you nor do I want to force Christianity upon you.
