"By what right do men exercise power over each other?" - Auberon Herbert
The Declaration of Independence states that all men are created equal. The country of the United States of America was founded on the idea that no man is born the master of any other, and no man is the king or lord of others. So why is it that I have to do what some bureaucrat says I have to. Why must I give a portion of my income to Washington DC, so that they can redistribute it to the rich and well connected? What right do they have to the fruits of my labor? Am I their slave? If not, why am I coerced at the point of a gun to do the bidding of the government?
