I value self-direction, so I have no objections to letting people reap the 
results of their choices. I do object to spending taxes on predictable 
recurring problems, whether flooding of, gasp, flood plains, or the tipping 
of tipsy homes in hurricane alley. It is difficult to understand why 
Florida does not have appropriate building codes.
