It's something supporters of government lack. There is nothing ethical about a system of government that robs Peter to pay Paul.

Your hatred of goverment has been brainwashed into you by those who benefit from having a weak government.
The billionaires who run the country know that the only entity which can place limits on their power and greed is the government. So they engage in a lifelong battle to get voters to fight the government on their behalf.
Government is not bad. A big country needs a big government. Government is only bad when it is controlled by bad people, which is what we have now because our election system FORCES our government to do the bidding of the rich.
Just like a gun, government is only bad when its in the wrong hands.
But I doubt you demonize guns the way you demonize the government, do you?
The solution is simply - public funding of elections. Politicians would no longer have to worry about pleasing donors, they would have to worry about pleasing voters, and all sorts of problems would start improving.
Or continue to argue for the benefit of sociopathic billionaires. Just don't expect to be rewarded for it.
