Jason, what if the government were to claim ownership of your physical body, using the same line of thinking. If someone needed a kidney, they could take one of yours. You could argue against it, but your claim would be subject to the collective will of the government.

Assuming that you find this proposition abhorrent, why is it hard to appreciate that property paid for by hours of hard work needs also to be protected. If government can claim ownership over the fruits of our labours, then we are all slaves. If you don't have a problem with that, then more power to you.
