Out to live off you you, for sure. The problem is that government has taken over more and more economic activity to the destruction of the free market. Your expressed view of what government should employ people to do and my view of freedom are inconsistent.
As a retired CPA having dealt extensively with both the IRS and HUD, I can tell you that there are some people working for these agencies who really are out to get anyone they can as an expression of their sick personalities and need to feel powerful.
I remind you that government is force. Force by its very definition is violence. This is the reason that government should be limited as agent of ours in our only right to use violence, i.e., self defense. All other undertakings of government are an intrusion on freedom and free economic activity.
And yes, governments historically have on occasion undertaken extreme violence against citizens (subjects) which is what the US appears to be moving toward.
Are you one of those feeding at the government trough?
"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.
