Regarding the redistribution of your income…

Amazing that our Founding Fathers had the foresight of government-funded social programs: bq. …[T]he government of the United States is a definite government, confined to specified objects. It is not like the state governments, whose powers are more general. Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.” –James Madison Charity begins at home, and should not be forced on any one of us by those we elect to govern.
