Property and Taxation...

What is property? What do you own? What do I own? What do we own? If we own anything, how should we pay to maintain it?

What is demand? If one person wants something? If enough people want it? What's enough?

Joint ownership: Ownership of a marijuana cigarette

Also, the ownership of something by multiple people who share equal or unequal shares depending on their degree of ownership

Yes.

EDIT: I don't use anything paid for by the government. The government can't pay for things, only individuals can.

Then aren't you guilty of theft?

But paying for something would make it mine, wouldn't it? And since you accept no ownership of the entity known as the United States of America, anything you take from it is theft, isn't it?
