    If you don't like that, then you should resign from society and relocate to a remote, unimproved area where you will not share in the benefits of society (and thereby become a freeloader... consuming, but not contributing). Something perhaps like an island, or an extremely remote desolate area devoid of roads, utilities, medicine, law enforcement, courts, and radio transmissions. It's only fair....

    And it should be noted we have representation.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    That sounds like fun. If only there was some sort of American Indiginous Law. Go live in a remote wilderness and be exempt from everything. I think I'd try to become a mountain man for a few years just to see if im strong/smart enough.

    Yep, because that is what it is. Don't like your representative, vote for another one.

    Or better yet, also get out and actively campaign for your representative of choice.

    Good luck with that. However, you do concede the point, right? You are represented.
