You know stress kills faster than nicotine. You trust in the goodness of mankind. You may have seen the abuses of out of control government first hand. You realize inflation for the tax on society that it is and you realize government spending causes inflation. You see the correlation between spending and inflation. You believe that the central bank is bad for the well-being of the average citizen. You also understand that any economic planning by government to help regulate the economic markets eventually lead to loss of individual liberties as well. After all, governments don't give to money away for free; there's no such thing as a free lunch.
