Charity, Welfare and Government

Charity is not an appropriate function of the government, no matter what any particular religion or theological authority claims. Charity is not part of the legislative duty of the government. (This was noted by James Madison in a 1794 speech in the House of Representatives.) Furthermore, elected officials use public benefits to win votes and create a circle of dependence.
