The Grand Lie- "It's Your Money..."

Say something enough times, and people wear down and start to believe- like telling us "It's your money" when it comes to taxes.
I do believe that I can use the same rationalization to not pay any of my bills- I'll just write on Capital One statement "Sorry, it's my money, and you cannot have any".
We get tangible value from taxes paid- at least I know I drive on public roads, enjoy public fire and police protection, am protected by a public military, use utilities delivered over public lands via public infrastructure. I enjoy all of this because I am an American, and more than 200 years ago we decided to create a free society together E Pluribus Unum .
