Quote of the Day

There is no virtue in compulsory government charity, and there is no virtue in advocating it. A politician who portrays himself as «caring» and «sensitive» because he wants to expand the government’s charitable programs is merely saying that he’s willing to try to do good with other people’s money. Well, who isn’t? And a voter who takes pride in supporting such programs is telling us that he’ll do good with his own money -- if a gun is held to his head.
- P.J. O’Rourke
