    And if you view healthcare as "stealing", surely you view all taxes that way? People are 'stealing' your money to pay for schools, roads and streetlamps? Would you opt-out of all of those too, to avoid such theft, and put money in each streetlamp that you personally use, as you walk by it?

    Calling taxation theft is not in itself an untrue statement - OP's heart is in the wrong place, however, he sees it as the people stealing it, whereas it is actually an overbearing government.
