To cite Heinlein (again from "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress":

"Perhaps the politicians should bear the cost of government. Let them  
pay for their anti-social habit out of their own pockets"

"If you *really* believe that your neighbors must have laws for their  
own good, why shouldn't *you* pay for it? ... There is no worse  
tyranny than to force a man to  pay for what he does not want merely  
because *you* think it would be good for him."

A wonderful book, written by an Engineer not a Social Scientist.
