I also love the notion that we delegate to government any administrative powers. This is a complete and total myth. No government asks for permission. No government waits for the people it claims dominion over to delegate anything before they begin exerting power. We were all born into this system and agreed to nothing.
The government would fight us tooth and nail using every means available, up to and including nuclear weapons, if we ever attempted to revoke any imaginary powers we allegedly delegated it to it.
