People do not have the right to live in the safety of this country unless they contribute to it. There contribution is based on taxes and obeying the laws. It is not much to ask for a lifetime of safety. People thinking that the government should not apply to them are way out of line.
All interaction with government should not be voluntary. This would complicate many things like community or society building, property rights, human rights, and more. People's ethics could be demeaned if they did not have to abide by government laws and policies. Treating people like property would take our government back to places that we should never return to.
