Regardless of how much you may dislike government, many of those gov't jobs are necessary to support the private sector. That's because the private sector is dependent on government workers -- yeah, the policemen, firemen, soldiers, court personnel -- for a society in which the private sector guys can do their "productive" stuff. Of course, you can probably think of some government job that seems to have no value. I certainly can. But the idea that there is no government job that has any economic value makes little sense -- except, perhaps, in some Utopian fantasy.
Well for social control you're going to end up getting a government at some point anyway. If people could stay to themselves and not try to control other people we wouldn't have nearly as many HOAs and blue laws.

The most prosperous country in the Caribbean is the British virgin islands. They have no sales, individual, or corporate t.ax. The same with the UAE.
Switzerland and Singapore also have very low tax rates for residents and businesses.

Not profesionally. I want to continue working on my Harly and i would like to build a retro rod out of a 1948-1950 Ford pick up truck. I've been turning wrenches professionally for 34 years now.

Well, I'm still on the job. There have been no incentives offered yet. But there are loads of rumors of them. Everything from an offer will come later this month to the end of August. Some of the offerers that have been made to others like the one that was offered to the Postal Carriers didn't look so great to me. For me to consider one I want to see medical coverage continued with out additional contributions, one month added to pension for each year of service, able to collect pension now, offer the incentive to 50 years of age not 55!
