    Proof, the right wing doesn't care enough about their topics to even argue their points.

    What is the purpose of government?

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.-- That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,

    Property rights are the bedrock to a successful enterprise system. Someone must make the initial distribution of property. Military members kill lots of people, obtain property and then divide it up to deserving/undeserving party. Then commerce can begin to thrive where property rights are clearly defined. The remaining government is just residual. Once the property is divided up there is no longer a need for government.

    It is way more complicated than all of that but I do think governments are necessary at the inception of a nation.
