    I would love to answer. But the question and answers make no sense.

    Can we get some context? If you pay taxes then yes, I guess you can claim you "own Government." But on that same token how do you define what part and how much you own? You can't walk into a Government building and take anything you want, or just live there... But you do vote for the people you elect. The question is vauge, very vauge.

    Ahh so you're trying to set people up and cause an argument or two if possible. Got it.

    nope.

    there is no punchline coming. this is simply for my own reasons and my own personal knowleledge.

    if people dont understand the questions its not an issue with their intellect. its simply not directed at them.
