The goal for most rational people in the USA is not to pay the least amount of taxes, but to have the most dollars available after taxes are paid.

And this seems to be the misconception of Roth conversions; you may end up paying less dollars in taxes by converting an IRA to a Roth, but you are likely to end up with less dollars available after taxes are paid.
