    Not really, in Virgina you are taxed to death. Some taxes are avoidable if you try hard enough. Like the 'personal property tax' basically because I own a car I have to pay a tax based on what the local government thinks my car is worth. I 2002 Accent with 130K miles on it is worth on the market about 10.00. But they think it is worth a lot more. Anyway if I didn't own a car I could avoid this tax. Frankly I feel it is just a shakedown, when I bought the car I paid a sales tax plus crazy 'fees' to the dmv to register said car. But Va has its hand in my pocket looking for every spare penny it can gouge out of me.

    I could also avoid paying income taxes as well by not working, and all forms of property tax by being homeless. So taxes are avoidable you just have to be willing to be homeless and own nothing of value.

    Or you could just go to jail.

    I am an anarchist! And yes trademarks/copyright/patents are lame, I think the USPO should be burned with the rest of the government!
