(I'm curious as to how you think the government could provide for the general welfare and other stuff without money though...)

The Federal government was funded by tariff and excise taxes before 1913. If the government stuck to it's constitutional functions outlined in Article 1 Section 8, and refrained from encroaching in other areas, the revenue from tariff's alone would be more than adequate to finance the government.
