That's not true, of course. If the only reason I have wealth to leave to my wife and children is the government, then why aren't the people the government wants to give my money to just as rich as me? They have the same government.
If you insist on living in a society without paying for its upkeep, you have to expect others to call you a freeloader.
So you are calling the people who the government wants to give my money to, freeloaders. Got it.
