Mr. Chiles a gentlemen by the name of Horatio Bunce told the very same of Representative Crockett from TN, "its not your money to give" and I hope you read the brief story that goes along with that statement.
If these not for profits do something of value for the city of Springfield then they should be able to find donors to continue there work.
Mr. Chiles you have the right to donate as much money as you like to whatever charity or not for profit you like, however you don't have the right to use the police force of government to force me to do the same.
|Famous Quote from Frederic Bastiat|| |
"Sometimes the law defends plunder and participates in it. Thus the
beneficiaries are spared the shame and danger that their acts would
otherwise involve... But how is this legal plunder to be identified?
Quite simply. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to
them and gives it to the other persons to whom it doesn't belong.
See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing
what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime. Then
abolish that law without delay ... No legal plunder; this is the
principle of justice, peace, order, stability, harmony and logic."
