Do you hear the sucking sound, it's a giant vacuum and it's sucking all the value out of your pocket. The out of control Federal government is drunk with power and is like a crack junkie looking for a fix.
Here's a test: Name one thing the US Government did that created value, cured a disease, helped a person, or enlightened someone? Public schools have become CRT hell holes where the only learning you do is how to get high without using street drugs (started out with Glue sniffers) and how not to get shot by the next crazed Manchurian Candidate (See MK Ultra - School Shootings).
In 2021 the US Treasury collected $4.05 Trillion according to official estimates. 
Aside from expenses relating to running the Federal government (remember it's not the Feds that administer your schools, fire, police, local roads, zoning, etc.) where does all the money go?
$54 Billion went to Ukraine, (so far, what we have counted). 
According to General MacGregor - anywhere from 20% to 40% went to Graft (stolen by people like Hunter Biden):
So basically, the US Treasury is collecting tax dollars and funding government contracts in such a way as to allow their cronies to walk away with millions and billions. And that's not all - it's not about the Graft, that's bad, but it's the whole 4 Trillion kaboom splendor. There has never been this kind of waste, disgusting, inhumane, cruel and unusual punishment. It's more destructive than taking your savings in cash and lighting it on fire- it's funding things that will hurt you (like crime, disease, etc.) The Federal Government through it's policies actually funds disease (gain of function?)..
If we reduced the US Government in size by 90% and released the technology from the vaults, we could literally end disease, end war, end crime, end suffering - it would literally be another planet. But instead, the social control paradigm has us fighting in between ourselves, blue vs. red, black vs. white, and so on. Friends, we are being played by those in power. It's one lie after another lie, to maintain 'the big lie' - The Big Lie is that after World War 2 the US inherited technology and access to technology that is incomprehensible to the common man. That technology is drip fed into Corporate America via "Research Labs" like PARC Labs in Palo Alto 
One leader after another claims "It's different this time" and "He's the real deal" - where were all the arrests when Trump had the power? All talk about the deep state, Trump never took any action against the deep state, and was heavily supported by deep state table heads Zion and Freemason. "America First" should be rebranded "Israel First" and if you mention this publicly your life will be ruined, as you will be labeled an anti-Semite, or have your reputation tarnished by the toxic ADL, Southern Poverty Law Center, or others.
Meanwhile, take a look at the origin of the black budget: 
Secret Funding - A multi-million dollar secret fund was organized and kept by the Military Office of the White House. This fund was used to build over 75 deep underground facilities. Presidents who asked were told the fund was used to build deep underground shelters for the President in case of war. Only a few were built for the President. Millions of dollars were funneled through this office to MJ-12 and then out to the contractors and was used to build top-secret alien bases as well as top-secret DUMB (Deep Underground Military Bases), and facilities promulgated by "Alternative 2", throughout the nation. President Johnson used this fund to build a movie theatre and pave the road on his ranch. He had no idea of its purpose. The secret White House Underground Construction fund was set up in 1957 by President Eisenhower. The funding was obtained from Congress under the guise of "construction and maintenance of secret sites where the President could be taken in case of military attack: Presidential Emergency Sites". The sites are literally holes in the ground, deep enough to withstand a nuclear blast and are outfitted with state of the art communications equipment. To date there are more than seventy five sites spread around the country which were built using money from this fund. The Atomic Energy Commission has built at least an additional 22 underground sites. The location and everything to do with these sites were and are considered and treated as top-secret. The money was and is in control of the Military Office of the White House, and was and is laundered through a circuitous web that even the most knowledgeable spy or accountant can not follow. As of 1980 only a few at the beginning and end of this web knew what the money was for. At the beginning were Representative George Mahon, of Texas, and the chairman of the House Appropriations Committee and of its Defense Subcommittee: and Representative Robert Sikes, of Florida, chairman of the House Appropriations Military Construction Subcommittee. Today it is rumored that House Speaker Jim Wright controls the money in Congress and that a power struggle is underway to remove him. At the end of the line were the President, MJ-12, the director of the Military Office and a commander at the Washington Navy Yard.
Anyone who works for the Boring Company, any branch of the Military, SpaceX, or related companies can verify that the underground tunnel network is real, at a cost that we cannot even begin to calculate. It's even been featured on local news.  Of course, we peons don't get to access it, should we need, or for any reason. Maybe subterranean construction is a total waste, and that's bad intel the US Government received on the need for such installations.
Our tax dollars at work. Bridges to no where, doomsday bunkers, and a nuclear arsenal capable of not only blowing up Earth to bits, but probably most planets in the solar system as well. Do we need all this? $4 Trillion US Dollars.
Local Governments on the other hand, are useful. They do things for you, like pickup your trash, protect you from burglars and the village pervert. When is the last time the Feds did anything? They have regulated markets nearly out of existence, for their Oligarchs and Monopoly friends. Created fake threats like COVID, Terrorism, and now "Climate Change" in order to justify even more spending and power. They have taxed our incomes and spent it on nothing useful, meanwhile fattening their own wallets.
The Federal Reserve, in case you don't know - is a private bank. Not connected to The Federal Government at all, other than it was created by an act of Congress, and the President appoints the chairman. The Fed is not a GSE, it's not Freddie Mac, it's not a credit union - it's a for profit central bank, and it's very lucrative.
What if - just what if- they weren't in charge at all?
What if the Elites are being remote mind controlled, and we are all being trolled?
