Whether you call it welfare, transfer payments, or redistribution of wealth, there is one uncomfortable fact about it that never gets discussed by the government run media in the United States. Walter E. Williams discusses the morality of redistribution of wealth.
I think it immoral for Congress to forcibly take one American’s earnings and give them to another American to whom they do not belong. If a person did the same thing privately, he’d be convicted of theft and jailed. We might ask ourselves whether acts that are clearly immoral and despicable when done privately are any less so when done by Congress.
I hope and pray we as conservatives, and we as a nation, are ready to start the discussion on the absolute immorality and wrongness of redistribution of wealth, or as it would be called if we did it to our neighbors ourselves, theft.
