I am with you!

I arrived to the same conclusion. When you vote, you are giving your consent and your approval to the state.
We are never going to have a government as small as the one the founders had. Their government still got big. Small government is a myth. Besides, I came to believe that government goes against my Christian faith. When satan tried to bribe Jesus with political power, he said that all the kingdoms of this world was given to him and he can give it to whomever he wants. Jesus didn't contradicted him.
Also, when Israel wanted a king, God told them by choosing a king, they where rejecting Him.
In Judges 9, There is a story that goes like that:

"8 One day the trees went out to anoint a king for themselves. They said to the olive tree, ‘Be our king.’

9 “But the olive tree answered, ‘Should I give up my oil, by which both gods and humans are honored, to hold sway over the trees?’

10 “Next, the trees said to the fig tree, ‘Come and be our king.’

11 “But the fig tree replied, ‘Should I give up my fruit, so good and sweet, to hold sway over the trees?’

12 “Then the trees said to the vine, ‘Come and be our king.’

13 “But the vine answered, ‘Should I give up my wine, which cheers both gods and humans, to hold sway over the trees?’

14 “Finally all the trees said to the thornbush, ‘Come and be our king.’

15 “The thornbush said to the trees, ‘If you really want to anoint me king over you, come and take refuge in my shade; but if not, then let fire come out of the thornbush and consume the cedars of Lebanon!’"
