I've actually attended conferences and spent years, if not decades, reading those stuff.
If you want to campaign for the platform that taxation is illegal or unconstitutional, create a platform for tax-is-illegal campaign and/or pass a new no tax amendment.
It's not practical for the simple fact that modern centralized state cannot exist without taxation. As a minimum, taxation rate of about 20-30%, if not more. Actually, even relatively decentralized countries like Switzerland need a central government and tax to survive.
Central problem facing Euro/EU is that you cannot have a long term SUCCESSFUL economic union w/o political union as well.
In fact, if you check early history of US during the time of Founding, US was almost destroyed by the inability of the central government to raise funds during early years.
If both Switzerland and US was a loose confederation of independent states(weak political cohesion) and economic union, problem would arise when economically weak/underdeveloped sector need help. E.g., Texas during S&L crisis of 1980s.
