    I think the level of government that is best suited should perform the function

    I don’t want the federal government plowing the road in front of my house
    I also don’t want my town chipping in to buy a Joint Strike Fighter

    Well, then I guess we have nothing further to discuss.

    BTW though, maybe you should test your theory, I just may surprise you.

    Well, I'm not a socialist. Government has no business 'addressing' the distribution of our material needs.

    Government has a responsibility to help those who need help

    It really doesn't nor should you expect it to. There is a large population of people in this country who see it as theft (I'm not one) but seen from their perspective they aren't wrong.
