Nobody is kicking the poor while they are down. My problem is with the government taking my money by force, effectively confiscating hours and days
out of my life that I will never get back, and giving that money to people too lazy to get off the couch. I believe charity should be personal. Being
personal, whether individually or as a small group, leads to real accountability for the receiver of charity. It motivates the giver/s to actually
teach the person to fish instead of just giving him/her one every day. Government is impersonal, faceless, and bureaucratic. They waste as much of the
money as they give away. Most importantly, they destroy the fabric of society by encouraging sloth and parasitism.
