If you care so much for others, then I hope you are already giving to charities etc. We don't need to pay more taxes to help others. And by the way, charity starts in one's own home, and with ones own immediate family. It does not start with more taxes, and jumping onto the socialist bandwagon. Quiet an assumption to make, that because I am against raising taxes some more, I don't care about others? I don't see how the two relate. maybe you can explain.
So I am a socialist? So if there is a need to cover parts of society, thats being socialist? No everyone is lucky bought to be ok, or good, or successful. One of MANY experiences I had was stuck in a jam in Atlanta. Under the underpass where homeless. Beds, bookcases, the whole none yards. We are not there yet. But if see its an issue helping out those that for whatever reason can't get over that line, I pity you. Same trip, SFO, a beggar, two in fact. One was ONLY wanting water, we gave him all we had. The other was well dressed, immaculately shaven, we walked right past. So before you decide who is poor and who should make an effort, and who deserves the help, maybe think again.
