The alternative based on market forces is for people to decide for themselves how to distribute their wealth. Charity need to be privatized. Then people will only give to the charities where their money will do the most good. The Liberal premise that government is the appropriate conduit for charity is simply wrong. Instead of lifting people up the Democrats want to get the populace addicted to government handouts in order to consolidate Democrat/government power. Is grabbing my money for paybacks to Obama donors who invested in Solyndra fair?
