“BTW your holiness, Why does it have to be all or nothing when it comes to a safety net for our fellow Americans.” Soon it will be nothing because America won’t have MONEY to pay SS.<quoted text>BTW your holiness, Why does it have to be all or nothing when it comes to a safety net for our fellow Americans. There's enough suffering and poverty to go around. How does government programs in any way negate private charities?To be clear, I don't in any way condone handing out money or food to able bodied people. If they can work then they should be put to work.But, then you right wing a-holes will scream "socialism". If someone tolD jESUS We want to pool our resources in case someone needs help it would make a ready made functional system to aleviate suffering. What would he say, NO? Would he complain that it would somehow run contrary to pure capitalism? WWJD.
“How does government programs in any way negate private charities?” Government programs have to be paid for and when taxes go up private charity revenues go down. Private charities are more effective and efficient than government will ever have a chance at being… The government should only be in the business of protecting American liberties, not removing them for the sake of charity.
