People DO give. The problem is that the money is not distibuted to aleve the suffering people donated to assuage. CEO of Goodwill's salary- $3,000,000.00/yr + free housing, cars, expense accounts...only $.20 on the dollar reaches the public it was meant to serve. CEO of United Way a little less @ $2,500,000.00/yr + all free amenities... $.35 cod reaches public and it goes on. Only Salvation Army continues to put the needs of others before their own greed... Salary...$30,000.

It doesn't matter how much milk money you leave home with....if I steal it from you every day....you will remain thirsty. One must of course start with compassion and immediate need, but there are some proven tactics which work. First the sovereign government must enforce the laws of our Creator to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Remember Hurricane Katrina...first there were rescues, and then the need moved to police to establish law and order. There must be a system of education. Compare a country like Haiti to one like Singapore. Same size, same natural resources, same weather....but Singapore invests in public education, and it's benefited their country immensely. They also had different systems of government, etc. Next it is very expensive to be poor. Try to go to work when you have malaria or some other awful disease. Investing in public health, clean water and nutrition yield excellent returns. Then you need infrastructure. You can't have a hospital helping people, when the electricity is unreliable or there's no clean water. So it's more than just giving, it's investing in the right areas and right order to improve things. It's also about opening borders to allow people to escape. Back in the 80's when half of Africa was starving, a comedian said we shouldn't be sending food to Africa, we should be sending them buses to get them out of there, because food will never grow in a desert. The sad thing is for poverty to end, people must work together, instead most blame another race or culture for their problems. This brings us back to lack of education. Think about this every time you hear them talking about building a fence on the Mexican border. Maybe it shouldn't be a fence which could be easily cut. Perhaps it should be a solid cement wall like they had in Berlin, and we could post armed guards on it. And before you know it the wall that was keeping others out, could end up trapping us in.

A lot of people do give 10% or even more of their income. I've given 20% rounded UP for years and we give 10% of my husband's and by the way we're conservatives, we just don't believe in big GOVERNMENT, it doesn't mean we don't have hearts.
