Charity Begins With Wealth Creation

Your ignorant aspersions aside, true, nearly unfettered capitalism has not been practiced in the United States in almost a century. A capitalist starts with an idea and produces a product or service having sufficient value that others are willing to part with their resources in exchange for it. Everyone benefits. Liberals, progressives, socialists, with envy and malice seek to legalize theft. There are plenty of Republicans in the latter group, though the Dems have made it an art form.

Trickle down does work, and would work better, if all the Liberals, who control the media, would stop lying about it. Too many are anti-Capitalist, while reaping the benefits of Capitalism. Obama and many of his worshipers hamper Capitalism and crow that it does not work. Some poor people, coming from Haiti or Namibia should be told it does not work. They would then go to Venezuela or Cuba, instead of NYC. Duh!
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.
