    It is immoral for a government to tell its most productive people that they must give up part of their lives and property for the benefit of other people who don't have as many resources as those of us who have worked hard and made successful lives for ourselves just because those others have refused to avail themselves of all the benefits this great country has offered them in the way of education, freedom to pursue their dreams, etc.

    Charity is intrinsically a voluntary thing, not something forced on us at the point of a gun by government thugs who have the authority to ultimately kill us for resisting their theft of our property. Taking one man's hard-earned money against his will for the benefit of another man's welfare is definitely not charity, it is the crime of robbery that is dictated by an arrogant and tyrannical government.

    Every citizen of this country has the potential ability to carve out a decent, comfortable life for himself by utilizing all the facilities offered up by the benevolence of the productive, taxpaying workers who are forced to subsidize the educational, medical, legal, and other needs of the underclasses who refuse to take responsibility for their own lives as long as they don't have to due to our rulers providing them with all they need and want by stealing from us.

    "Every citizen of this country has the potential ability to carve out a decent, comfortable life for himself "


    except of course for those people who are unemployed because there aren't enough jobs to go around.

    I can imagine a world in the future in which computers, robots, machines do almost all of the work....

    resulting in massive unemployment...40%? 50%? 70? 80?...you?

    and I don't want 250 million people whining about poverty or demanding that the few extremely wealthy multibillionaires in America who EARNED all of their wealth being forced to pay pennies or nickels just to feed lazy and irresponsible welfare cheats and deadbeats!


    America won't be TRULY great until ALL of the wealth is in the hands of a few elitists and everyone else is eating out of garbage cans!

    I haven't seen evidence that the government can or will kill a person for not paying taxes, but yes, forced charity is morally wrong, while voluntary charity is one of the most admirable of human qualities.
    Government forcing one to support others with his own earned labor is intrinsically as wrong as theft on the street or in the neighborhood. It's government stealing your energy and your labor for their own use as they deem fit.

    Don't get me started...
    For a good 40 years now our government rewards vice and punishes virtue.
