Actually by off-sourcing charity to the Govt, the Govt ensures that people dont want to bother with the poor. That is what was distinctive about
American society. The people had to take care of each other because there was no Big Daddy to subsidize your sloth.
The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
Mankind soon learn to make interested uses of every right and power which they possess, or may assume. The public money and public liberty, intended
to have been deposited with three branches of magistracy, but found inadvertently to be in the hands of one only, will soon be discovered to be
sources of wealth and dominion to those who hold them; distinguished, too, by this tempting circumstance, that they are the instrument, as well as the
object of acquisition. With money we will get men, said Caesar, and with men we will get money. Nor should our assembly be deluded by the integrity of
their own purposes, and conclude that these unlimited powers will never be abused, because themselves are not disposed to abuse them. They should look
forward to a time, and that not a distant one, when a corruption in this, as in the country from which we derive our origin, will have seized the
heads of government, and be spread by them through the body of the people; when they will purchase the voices of the people, and make them pay the
... nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.
