Well, anyone who supports the state inevitably supports theft.
you are correct
but how else would you support the state? would you be for anarchy?
Valid question. I say look at the intent of the founders of this country and the Constitution. They believed in a limited government. This government would cover essentials like military expenditure roads, bridges. When you start taking money away from people to give to others, that's when it becomes theft. Everyone can use a road, not everyone can use a welfare check.
