    That was a different assertion. Besides, I think yourstar was the one making that argument.

    However, you cannot prove an assertion with the lack of proof in an unrelated assertion.

    In post #447 you said, "Do you have any data to support this assertion?" in response to my assertation that private charities were able to provide help to the poor for over a hundred years before the government got involved. I provided the link to the Philanthropic Society page that showed the history of private charities in the US. You decided to change the debate point after that.

    And I provided proof for my assertion. The poverty rate went down when the government provided welfare programs.

    That link did not provide any proof.

    The link does provide proof with a list of charities and the date they were founded.

    You have yet to provide proof of what the poverty rate was before the government got involved. You didn't provide proof of what poverty was like when the government got involved, since I did by linking the National Poverty Center's statistics.

    All it shows is that some charities were founded. It contains no information on what impact the charities had.

    That in no way states their effectiveness.

    I never made the claim that it was effective. You're the one that asserted that it wasn't effective and you have yet to provide any proof to back that up. I have been waiting patiently for you to provide such proof.
