A frequent argument in the states is about people not wanting to wear motorcycle helmets. Many of these people don't have medical
insurance either. So in an effort to demonstrate their desire to not have the government
tell them what to do, they have the government
take tax money and spend it on them for acting like selfish children
(I'm sitting at ~80k motorcycle miles by the age of 35)
It's aggravating watching tax money spent on stupid things, it's even more aggravating when it's spent on people who claim to want "less government". Similar to that couple that got rescued and flown home to Arizona when they left the US because of "too much government".
If you get your ass chased down by a skiff full of RPG-7 armed pirates with a 50 cal deck
gun, feel free to broadcast on the radio
that you want "less government" and as such don't want any coalition war ships to burn excess fuel
trying to get to you quickly.
I don't have a problem paying taxes
because I use and enjoy government services of many flavors. If you want to experience less government, move to Mogadishu. Oh what's that, you want basic security
, emergency medical
services, a fire department, decent reciprocal visa statuses, embassies to help you when you get mugged and beaten in any country? Open your wallet and pay your taxes.
