Property tax an assault on our identity

I'VE lived in the US for 15 years now where every year I pay property taxes for the home I own.

If I decide to not pay my property tax one year, then the government will auction off my home to get its property tax money, plus interest.

The government comes first here, so even if the bank still owns the mortgage, the house can be sold so the government can get its property tax money.
