Government needs to get out of the charity business and let the private sector handle it. Americans are the most generous people in the world. There is no reason (or constitutional authoriy) to forcibly extract money from citizens to fund a wasteful, inefficent, fraud-riddled government welfare machine. I certainly would contribute more to private charities if less of my paycheck was being vacuumed up by the government.

That's the whole problem, isn't it? EVERYONE has to help this Republic realize that the ONLY legitimate, Constitutional functions of the Federal government are national defense, foreign policy, and the regulation of interstate commerce. If this happened, you would keep about 90% of your federal taxes overnight.
