Charity, why should I give?

Why should I give to any charity now. President Obama has taken away most deductions for a good heart out of my tax filings. Congress has passed the initial forced servitude acts (GIVE/SERVE acts). SO why should I bother to reach further into my pocket in these Washington made economic bad times?

There once was a time in this country when people would stop and give a hand up to those who were in need. As a matter of fact one used to be able to turn to their church for help when things were tough. Now it has changed. Congress is telling us you WILL help the community out. They are telling us it is our obligation to our fellow citizen. Why? It is not my responsibility to be my neighbors keeper. As a matter of fact I AM NOT MY BROTHERS KEEPER EITHER. However if it is family it is my choice to help them out. Why, because it is family and if you can not help family out then there are some issues there.

I am not responsible for my fellow man if he chooses to be homeless and beg on the streets. You can not tell me that every one on the street corner is there because of the economy. I will post pictures of some I have seen on the street corner for several years now later. Many beg on the street because they prey on the good hearts of the good people in this country. But how long will the American have a good heart when they are being forced to do something?

Berried deep in these GIVE/SERVICE acts, read the fine print. Are mandatory hours and acts of service that are to mandated on the populace. This be definition removes charity from the act.

According to the Websters dictionary. Charity is defined as the following:

Main Entry:
\ˈcher-ə-tē, ˈcha-rə-\
Inflected Form(s):
plural char·i·ties
Middle English charite, from Anglo-French charité, from Late Latin caritat-, caritas Christian love, from Latin, dearness, from carus dear; akin to Old Irish carae friend, Sanskrit kāma love
Date: 13th century
1: benevolent goodwill toward or love of humanity

2 a: generosity and helpfulness especially toward the needy or suffering ; also : aid given to those in need b: an institution engaged in relief of the poor c: public provision for the relief of the needy

3 a: a gift for public benevolent purposes b: an institution (as a hospital) founded by such a gift

4: lenient judgment of others
synonyms see mercy

No where does it say a mandatory service by one for another. It is an act of kindness not a forced act of service to another.

So if I am going to be forced into servitude to my fellow citizen why would I want to give freely of my wallet and time. I am already being forced to give up time. Time in which I am being told what to do over what I want or need to do. To me this sounds a little like oppression and fascism.

Charity begins at home. As my dollar travels less and less then it once did. I think I will be my own charity, help my family, take care of my dogs, long before I donate to a charity.
