I believe that government, governs best when it governs least. This notion that we need some bureaucratic nanny to subsidize our very existence is in abject opposition to the values held by the people who founded and built this country. It is an affront against the freedom bought and paid for with courage and blood. Does this mean that those less fortunate should be cast aside and ignored? Heavens no! But to force this “help” on those who neither need it nor want it is not liberty by any definition I recognize. Charity begins in the heart. Some thing this country has never been in short supply of. The following is a quote from an essay I first read from 2banana a couple of years ago titled ‘Can Government do the Work of God?” “Charity,” enforced by the government, is not charity, it is extortion. “Charity,” delivered by the government, is not charity, it is a bribe which corrupts both the giver and the receiver.
John 3:19-21 (19) And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. (20) For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. (21) But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
