Quote them: Founding Father style

"Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government."

James Madison

PS Greedy, selfish founding fathers. In all their wisdom to establish a system that has sustained and maintained individual freedom like no other place or time in the world, they just didn't get it. How unEuropean of them. True compassion is making a population dependent on a government that cares. Like a mommy. Or a thumb to suck.
