I would recommend taking a few economics classes, and maybe trying to understand the idea that taxation is the only way to ensure a good quality of healthcare, education, etc., for everyone, and that services such as the police force simply couldn’t exist without taxation. Also, stop thinking that every country is the same as the US — the US’ inability to control public sector spending is because its politicians are sub-par, not its taxation policy. Further to that point, the US doesn’t have good healthcare or education for all due to its libertarian outlook on too many issues and frankly ridiculous spending on non-essential things.
