Charity is good, except . . .
When the funds come from public money. I am incensed that my President and my Congress have conspired to give taxpayer money to hurricane victims. Does that make me an ogre? I think not.

Our Constitution is being ripped apart by Republican and Democrat alike. Charity is and should be an individual thing. It is a church thing. It is a corporate thing. Individuals, churches and corporations should, and do, give to just and needy causes. Our government should not. It is fiscally irresponsible for them to do so.

There are tragedies in our country every day. Why choose the group of tragedies in one particular area and not pay to have a person's house rebuilt after a fire? Is there not insurance? Is it my responsibility as a taxpayer to pay for the rebuilding of a home the owner had under-insured? I think not. If we are to remain a strong nation, and we are rapidly weakening as a people, we have to get back to standing up for ourselves, taking personal responsibility and ensuring our government does only what it is supposed to do, according to that document drawn up so long ago, the Constitution. It is, after all, the law of the land. Our
Congress and our President have been flagrantly breaking that law all to long now.
