As Washington said, "Government is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force." With that in mind, government provided "charity" takes on new meaning:
#1 - To help me, you must first pick someone else's pocket.
#2 - It is easy to be compassionate with other peoples' money.
#3 - Those who willingly participate in this theft can not possibly be trusted.
As H.L. Mencken said, "An election is nothing more than the advanced auction of stolen goods."
