    Depends on the mortgage, for personal home no, for income property yes.

    If you don't own a home, for example, then you are paying for the mortgage interest deduction that homeowners get, because if they weren't getting that deduction your taxes would be lower (or you would get more services). So the mortgage interest deduction is a MANDATE to buy a house in exactly the same way that this is a mandate to buy insurance.
    Taxes are defined on an independent basis. This isn't even relevant because the tax isn't meant to actually generate revenue but to discourage a behavior.

    if you do not donate 25% of your income to the RNC, a tax of approximately 50% of your income will be incurred.

    Tree’s stock tip of the day…BUY STOCK IN CORDAGE Mill’s. Lotta rope going to be bought in the coming months.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    2) If I am sick/injured then buy insurance, paying premiums ONLY while getting treatment and then cancel the policy ASAP.
    I'm surprised you didn't add "apply for welfare assitance" to your list. Since sucking the Govt. teat is so appealing to you.

To get any amount of insurance these people are paying several times that, and still getting below average coverage.
    You are forgetting.....the amount they pay in addition for medical care they use.
