Virginia lawyer David Silek is attempting to dissolve his town’s government in order to eliminate its taxes.

A self-described “Jeffersonian libertarian,” who does not affiliate with the Tea Party Movement, Silek was seen booing the Front Royal, Va. town council meeting on Tuesday, and expressed his plans to write a petition asking for the Front Royal town government to be absorbed into the Warren County government.

Referring to his behavior at the meeting, Silek said, “Our relatives picked up arms against the government. Booing is nothing.”
