Why should I pay a bunch of people in government to make decisions with my money when I can make those decisions myself and keep a butt-ton of money to boot? The government takes over $120 out of my meager $530 weekly paychecks and gives me nothing in return. Most of that money goes to pay for government health care for the poor and elderly. I will never see a dime of that money. The rest of it goes to a retirement plan which I will never see benefits from.
Essentially a bunch of con-men have conned us into believing that we should pay them to make financial decisions for us, then taken all of our money and used it on projects which never benefit us.
You also forgot that a good portion of that 120 provides the protection services, down to the roads police drive on, that keep people from taking your 530 a week. Pay crooks in state and local government so you can keep the rest of your paycheck, or pick the options you prefer. Slavery - you work for free anyway Anarchy - work all you want, someone with a bigger stick will take it anyway Could go on and on with other options, but you've already got the best one.
