Then why should I pay property taxes? I dont go to school, I don't call the police (I hanlde that myself) or even the fire department (again I handle that myself). I dont use any governmental services nor do I need a huge offensive based military.
So what right do YOU have YOU using MY money?
Because we are not animals. We are supposed to be humane. Go get some humanity.
People cannot afford insurance and most jobs do not even offer it. Our health care system has costs that are way out of control and we need to shift to being more like humans and a bit less dog eat dog.

Why is this suddenly the be all, end all in this country?
Like I said earlier, it wasn't even a blip on the radar a little more than a decade ago. If it is so needed for a "civilized society" and such a "fundamental human right", why is it only that way now and not all along?
