My goodness, I think you're finally figuring it out. Businesses and corporations don't give people a job because it's their civic duty. They hire people to work in their business doing work they can't do themselves.
The problem conservatives and liberals have understanding each other is their outlook on what our country is. To conservatives, we are a country of individuals who are blessed with the free will to choose our path in life. To liberals, our country is one giant commune.
In a commune, everybody puts their fruits and vegetables in the middle of the room and others take regardless if they contributed or not. In an individual world, you keep the vegetables and fruits you worked hard to gather. Then, if you see some pour soul who is incapable of fending for themselves, you offer on your own free will some of what you reaped. It's not forcibly taken from you in the name of charity.
There were times when I was younger when I didn't have enough money. But I didn't complain that the rich should give me some of theirs. I worked more hours if need be. There were many times in my younger day when I worked several jobs. People (especially younger ones) don't have that kind of attitude today. They won't learn a trade or try to get a higher education. Damn it. I want to screw nuts onto bolts, and I want to make an upper-middle-class living by doing that job, and somebody better make that happen!
Lastly, the difference between a corporation taking a tax break and somebody abusing our social programs is that the corporation does society good. You can't give them anything. All you can do is take less of what they give you. My taxes don't go up and my country go into severe debt over corporations. We do go into debt by handouts and social programs.

While Christianity teaches us to help each other, conservatives work overtime to try to do evil to others, and to lie about the motives of those who do good.(Satan is the Father of Lies, and you people wallow in it.) Your whole post is filled with lies, and you’re all so devoted to your evil ways that nothing will change you. You’re lost and a waste of my time.
Yep! Expecting people to earn what they get, and government to work for the people rather than control them is pure evil! Lmao!

Funny thing is, sequestration wasn't the Republicans' idea. Obama used it thinking it was so bad, he would get his way down the road. It didn't work.

That is what our country was about at it's founding. Why didn't our founders have social programs back then if they believed in them?

Before you say they didn't have the capabilities, certainly they did, in different ways.

Instead of food stamps, the federal government could have purchased food from farmers to give to the lazy.

Instead of HUD, the federal government could have paid workers to build log cabins for the lazy.

Instead of utility help, government could have purchased firewood to give to the lazy.

Instead of Cash for Clunkers, the founders could have implemented Cash for Carriages.

But they didn't, and do you know why? Because they didn't want to see an America like we have today. It's the cart theory: If everybody is pulling the cart, the cart flies down the street at high speeds. The more people who stop pulling the cart and instead, jump in the cart for the ride, the slower that cart goes. When half of more of the people pulling the cart decide to jump in, the cart stops, and that's where we are at today in the USA.

Half of our population pays income taxes. Half of our population lives partially or entirely off taxpayers. The cart has stopped.

"I cannot undertake, to lay my finger, on that article of the Constitution, that grants Congress the right of expending on articles of benevolence, the money of their constituents."

I guess old James didn't believe in America, huh?

Studies have consistently proven that Liberals are conservative when it comes to personal charity and Conservatives are very liberal when it comes to personal charity.

the other problem is most conservatives give without fanfare whereas liberals jump up and down yelling "look what I did, look what I did."

You are now the undisputed champion of spreading spectacular bullshit or simply too f-ing stupid to understand reality as not the same as your fucked up right-wing ideology. How anyone in their right mind, which you are clearly not, could compare the modern economy with the economy of the early days of the Union is beyond even the most ignorant and moronic troglodyte. The US did not become the leading industrial power until the 20th century. The modern American economy traces its roots to the quest of European settlers for economic gain in the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. The New World then progressed from a marginally successful colonial economy to a small, independent farming economy and, eventually, to a highly complex industrial economy. The history of welfare in the U.S. started long before the government welfare programs we know were created. In the early days of the United States, the colonies imported the British Poor Laws. These laws made a distinction between those who were unable to work due to their age or physical health and those who were able-bodied but unemployed. The former group was assisted with cash or alternative forms of help from the government. The latter group was given public service employment in workhouses.

Sounds like you are opposed to individual responsibility and personal freedoms. You must be the "What is mine is mine and what is yours is mine, too!"
Yeah, that's real American of ya.
Maybe you ought to pick up a little American history and read what the founding fathers though. James Madison would be a great starting point and not Karl Marx.

Tithing doesn't buy one's way into heaven or out of hell. Where is your proof that churches fight civil rights?

The stuff you come up with is so out there, it amazes me that there are people dumb enough to believe or buy into it.

Your idea of being American is extremely distorted. It's probably along the lines of the Boston Bombers.
