Why Stop at 350 Million?

Why not give, give it all away, give until it hurts.

Lets not confuse an act of irresponsibility with an act of charity.

The people have delegated to Congress, by the Constitution, the power to do certain things. To do these, it is authorized to collect and pay moneys, and for nothing else. Everything beyond this is usurpation, and a violation of the Constitution.'

There is nothing wrong with charity. It is truly a noble deed to help those who have suffered, but there is nothing noble if the money you give away is not yours to give in the first place.

Across America, people are digging into their pockets and doing all they can to help those in Southeast Asia who have suffered a terrible catastrophe. Our government officials seem to think nothing to give away the taxpayer money, but how many of our government officials have actually contributed of their own money? I'd venture to guess that the number is zero.

It is time that things change and that our government learns not only the lessons of fiscal responsibilty but that of humility.

Col. David "Davy" Crockett was a famous American frontiersman, war hero, and congressman from Tennessee. If he was alive today, he could teach those in our government a lesson in humility.
