I also do not mind paying taxes to house the poor and unfortunate masses of people here and abroad, let's not call it the Christian thing to do, let's just say it is the humane thing to do. It seems every Christmas, these nuts come out of the woodwork spouting off the real reason/s people celebrate Christmas, but these people that are poor and needy are poor and needy 24/7/365, not just on religious holidays.
The other bad part about states like mine (Wisconsin) is that our US Government elected officials like Paul Ryan, who used his father's social security death benefits to further his education, is trying to rescind and repeal the very program/s that gave him a step up, a helping hand. And people like my governor (Scott Walker) has signed bills into law making poor people who receive government entitlements like EBT endure and pass means tests before they are awarded any needed entitlements. That is, blood and urine testing for drugs, which we all know, some can be addictive and people sometimes ending up hooked on them will be discriminated against, lawmakers forgot that addictions is a disease.
Some lawmakers falsely accuse these entitlements of being the cause of the government's deficits and budget problems, it seems that they're the ones who caused all of these spending problems by starting unnecessary wars and conflicts the world over. Bush 43 cuts taxes for the rich and affluent while starting 2 wars, which our country is now mired in with no end in sight. People like Limbaugh and Drudge get on the radio waves and pound these messages to any fools that'll listen to them, attacking the poor and needy on a nearly daily basis. I call all of it hate speech.
