Does the state own everything? Are property rights dead? Do you have to petition the government for your rights to own certain things, go certain places, and do certain activities? Do you have to pay tribute for some of those same things?
When did we hand sovereignty to the state? "Consent of the governed?" Well I didn't consent to be governed, because I wasn't around when the government was formed, so I never handed over my sovereignty. So why do I pay tribute and petition for my own rights?
