Are they too cowardly to do it themselves? Why not just knock on their neighbor's door, stick a gun in their face and demand half their money for their girlfriend's medicine? What's the difference if you vote for a politician to do it for you?

"Seize money under threat of violence"?
You mean, "pay taxes as part of the social contract, like in every civilized society that has ever existed on earth"?
