If the State didn't exist, would you invent it?
Think of all the things you want or need, from street repairs (or street building), to education, to legal services, to security services, to good health, to sound money.
Then, take the cost of all these things from your budget, hand it to somebody else, who THEN, by committee or assembly, prioritizes these things for you. You have no control of the matter, except for "votes" that are more likely to be miscounted by error or fraud than to actually make a difference and elect the "right people."
Would you think that's a good idea?
How does it make any sense?
