One of the things America has long been known for is our charity towards others. Whenever there is a catastrophe anywhere in the world, U.S. based organizations and individuals are usually among the first to pitch in and help and to donate money to recovery.
Long before the American Revolution, most charity came from churches and Christians. They followed the example of Christ’s compassion for others. Most of the charitable organizations for years were biblically based and this has been one of the things that have kept America strong.
However, one of the tenets of a socialistic government is that charity comes from the government. Socialism wants everyone to believe that the people owe their existence to the government and when they find themselves in need, the government is the one to turn to. Under socialism, all other charitable organizations are squashed. They even will do everything in their power to end private charity as well. Charity can only come from the government and there is no other option.
More and more I’m seeing signs of how our socialistic government under Comrade Obama is implementing the socialistic views of charity.

Crow-Smith was approached by a city worker who said they were the Neighborhood Preservation inspector and said that she and her friends had to stop handing out the free water as they were violating city code because they didn’t have a permit.Read more: http://godfatherpolitics.com/6736/charity-not-allowed-unless-okayed-by-government/#ixzz24WvT64ak
