A while back I had a poll "Who do you help?". The majority of those responses showed that almost everyone who answered said that they performed a charity of some kind. I also found in those responses that people were against the government helping people. This leads me to think that people want to help the less fortunate, they just don't want to be compelled to help. Being compelled to help takes away the choice of whom to help. The government will help anyone as long as they fit the criteria of 'need'. So is it that we don't want the government helping people we feel don't deserve to be helped, or is it the simple fact of the government shouldn't help anyone? What criteria do you use to determine who you help and why?
