Though I completely disagree with Howard's views and definition of socialism, I give him credit for proclaiming his socialist tendencies. Besides Bernie Sanders, not too many are willing to do so.

My comment was thinly veiled, but not intended to be a slap at those who believe there are times the government must step in to help those who cannot help themselves.My intention was to bring light to the fact that individual charity is better and more efficient than government handouts.Call me old fashioned, but I agree that the government taking the fruit of someones labor and giving it to another is unconstitutional.Like Candy, I do not wish anyone to suffer a catastrophic illness or accident. However, I don't feel it is the responsiblity of the government to take money from one to assist another.
