Actually, we have all had it wrong, including the anarcho-capitalists.
Government is not a service. Government is the customer. We are the businesses and services.
For xxx amount of money, we provide the right to take a 10th of our crops that we grow, to boss us around, and to make them feel like they have power. The government provides and produces nothing.
Government is the *customer*. The reason we have been getting that confused is we've been paying them. We ought to be collecting taxes from the government, not the other way around.
Then it would make sense to be providing all those services to government. We need to start charging them for what we provide for them.
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
