why not?
It's the nature of dependency. If you depend on someone else for your needs, they have control over you. Everything has its price.
...we pay taxes for a variety of things....we have the power to vote jackasses out ,that use those taxes idiotically
..please give examples of dependency
Huh... I assumed a basic level of political awareness on the part of the reader. Google "US welfare programs" or something similar. You'll get there.

Sorry to disappoint you. What is your opinion? Would you rather have government focused on protecting freedom? Or ensuring that your needs are met? (according to the government's estimation of your needs).

My point is that if we make government our principal provider, it will be our master. Access to the things we need will depend on staying on good terms with whomever is in office.
