As long as there is another source - or at least the potential for another 
source - of the goods and services which do not include the cost of support 
for that for which I have no affection.

But aren't we straying too far into politics in a music forum? I was taught 
as a teenager that the three topics guaranteed to start bitter arguments 
which have no resolution short of a war of extermination are sex, religion, 
and politics. I am now 68 and in 50 years have never seen any reason to 
dispute that assertion.
