I'm tired of the dung heap belief that “caring for the poor” is giving other people’s money to the poor. That's crap and that's what politicians do. Dear Joe B. politician, if you truly “care for the poor”, take your hand out of my wallet and stick it where the “sun don't shine”, your own dang wallet. Taxes are taken from individuals through the threat of force. Stop forcing people to give to your favorite cause. How about giving away some of your own money!

What's crazy, I mean really crazy, to the point of being crazy stupid, is thinking that Mr. Joe B. politician is compassionate. Come on, it's real easy to give away someone else's money. How compassionate is that?

How do you care for the poor? By caring for your neighbor! If you let your neighbor’s house get repossessed and you didn’t help, shame on you. If your neighbor is going bankrupt from medical bills and you didn’t help, shame on you. If your neighbor can’t put food on their table and you didn’t help, shame on you. If you don’t know your neighbor . . . well, you know the rest.

"So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” Matthew 6:2-4 NIV

Jesus answered, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me." Matthew 19:21

They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Acts 2:45

Notice how Jesus taught, "when you give", "sell your possessions".  It's about YOU doing.  Come on, let's stop looking to big brother government to do what we should be doing.
