Just one thing about taxes, and I'm taking it from Milton Friedman:
The IRS is a part of the government. Is the government suppose to serve us, or do we serve the government? Do we elect politicians to represent our views, or to control our lives? If the government is suppose to SERVE you, then let me ask you another question. When you're being audited by the IRS and sitting opposite a government bureaucrat who has the power to garnish your wages, throw you in jail, and take everything you've earned...who is the master, and who is the slave?
So anyway to rehash.
There issue is defined as (and I will once again link it in to show that I am not moving goal posts)
For example : FRAC - Hunger in the U.S.
Now, your claim also was that before government got involved, the needs of the financially handicapped were met. You did not state federal government in your post, so to later redefine your statement would be moving the goal posts. As such, I will continue to address the statement in post 445, as you have not retracted it.
To be clear, constitutionality and legal legitimacy is not a proper part of the argument as this is primarily a financial discussion about taxation and how it related to charitable giving, so please stop using an argument that is irrelevant.

Megaprogman, with the evidence you have given, what is your personal solution to the problem of high hunger rates and a community of "financially handicapped" individuals? I suggest you read the following:
