Charity Begins With Wealth Creation

Imagine a tax code that got smaller the more money a person made. What a concept! Then everyone would be motivated to seek better paying jobs and start up businesses to make even more money. This way, when you are just starting out you pay the highest percentage, and as you get more money, the percentage gets lower. Now you are motivated to please the boss or the clients so that they will give you raises, or more jobs, improving your income picture, while cutting your obligations to the government. Wow!!!!!!!
Charity -- helping people who have trouble helping themselves -- is a good thing two times over. It's good for the beneficiary and good for the donor, too. Stephen Post's fine book, "The Hidden Gifts of Helping," reveals that 76 percent of Americans say that helping others is what makes them most happy. Giving money makes us feel good, and helping face-to-face is even better. People say it makes them feel physically healthier. They sleep better.

Private charity is unquestioningly better than government efforts to help people. Government squanders money. Charities sometime squander money, too, but they usually don't.
