What do you mean by

"must steal in order to exist"?
We approve a contract (compact - Constitution) and agree to pay x amount through determined means in order to receive the benefits that contract spells out it will provide. How is that theft?
What we never agreed to is the fed gov taking money from the fruits of our labor, our paychecks, as we expected it to live within the means of it payment structure. That's the only place where I see theft taking place, but you didn't spell that out and I haven't read the Rothbard document so I don't know what premise was set up in it.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
