The mafia is a gang of criminals, the gov't is not.

Says who?

Again, you seem to be equating morality with legality, and presuming that every individual has the right to decide what is legal and what is not legal, based on their own opinions about morality.

No, I am not. I am arguing that government, by forcing participation in its structures, violates common standards of decency and morality, just as the Mafia does. Because the government does this, we have no special obligation to it.
