thanks A Smith. I appreciate your responses (and your tenacity!)

So the key is really not taxes but smart government and management. I don't like bloated government largesse any more than you do. But in Scandinavia they manage to maintain a huge public service alongside a very efficient free market. One reason I've heard is they allow businesses to lay off workers fairly easily, letting their EI system take care of them in the meantime. But I don't think it's as easy as saying that government, per se, is inefficient.
