What Makes You think People Would Voluntarilly Fund Good Government?

I can answer that.

Look at what so many corporations did in celebration of Trump's tax cut:  Gave bonuses to their workers and raise their companies' minimum wages.  They did that voluntarily as a way to support Trump and his tax cuts.  They gave that money to employees as a way to improve government.  Not out of altruism, but because good government benefits them.

Those same corporations voluntarily give millions in bribes-disguised-as-campaign-contributions to politicians to get government to partially get off their backs or just to keep them from weighing them down with even more useless regulations.  Imagine how much they would give to a government for whom regulation of the business world is an anathema. 

People will absolutely voluntarily support good government.  A government that takes more than half of the average earners earnings and still needs to borrow to stay afloat is by definition NOT a good government.

This one seems to be about regulations, but never anything specific from a pseudo-libertarians because they're all just talking kneejerk support of nothing in particular.

So to make it clean and quick, it's just more bullshit because regulations are made for a purpose. And example would be the slaughter of workers in the workplace as was the practice in England back in Charles Dickens' time.

It was good because it didn't limit profit by companies being concerned with sending workers home in one piece at the end of the work day.

The new burnsred who feigned social responsibility didn't even last a full 24 hours.
