After all, we earn our money. It does not belong to the government.
You really do not understand money.
You work -- or have worked -- in a service industry. You provided a service to others. And you wanted to exchange that service for other goods (such as food).
Money is merely an exchange medium to facilitate that kind of exchanging of good and services.
If you were living in the jungle, you would have to fight it out with the lions and the jackals. The services that you provide would not be of value. It is only because we are part of an organized society, that we can exchange services for goods.
Money, as an exchange medium, would be useless if there were no maintenance system in place. The Federal Reserve manages the needed maintenance system. Whenever you attempt to exchange service for goods, the work of the Federal Reserve behind the scenes is part of what allows this to succeed.
