I do not think the government should come and take my money and give it to someone else. That is a form of stealing. I am perfectly happy to help people on my own, and do it when I can, but I am not happy when someone forces me to do it.
Unless you're advocating anarchy, this is asinine.
Society doesn't exist unless a central organization claims some set of resources and allocates them for the common good. We could have a government that gives you three personal soldiers because you made ten million dollars last year, but we could have a monkey that shits Twinkies, too...if only we'd try.
Why don't we try, my friends?
