Get a clue. You aren’t a libertarian.

| So, given the real world choice between a more or less intrusive tax structure, you wouldn’t choose a less intrusive tax structure? |
How libertarian is that?

Listen: Given a real world choice between a more or less intrusive tax structure, although I'm not sure what "intrusive" refers to, I think I'd take the more "intrusive" structure. I'd certainly take the most complex and inefficient structure. Why would I want to support a movement to make it easier and more efficient for the criminal gang to steal my money?
The more loopholes, the more complexity, the more chances you have to pay less.
We have this thing here in California called Prop. 13. Ignorant rightwingers think its wonderful. It limits the ad valorem property tax to one percent of the assessed value. You know what? The criminals in charge of California found a zillion other ways to expropriate wealth. The tax system is not the issue.
If you aren't interested in ending government, I'm not interested in you as a libertarian.
