What you aren't understanding is that I'm approaching things from a philosophical perspective. ALL government redistribution is wrong, no matter who the beneficiaries are. If that's disgusting, fine.
I don't think as many people would be on the street as you think. Families and churches would have to learn to fill the void. I know I'd help my family. I think most decent people would.
Of course, they won't do that, they'll continue to expand the redistributionary scheme and raise taxes. I'm surprised a "Conservative" would be OK with this.
