Four Things that Prove Governments Love Us Very Much

#1 - Wealth Inequality.

Because our government loves us and wants us to live a long time. Thanks, government, for free vaccines (which we pay for indirectly anyway)

#4 - Taxes
Taxes keep going up, causing small businesses and small farmers all across the country to go bankrupt. Because the government loves us they raise our taxes.
