Artist's Description

When you voluntarily donate your own money to programs or causes or people that you support, that’s called charity. When you work to elect politicians who will force other people at gunpoint to give up their money to programs or causes or people that you support, that’s very definitely NOT charity. It’s NOT generosity. It’s not “making them pay their fair share”. It’s theft.

There is no magical level of income where, above that mark, robbing someone becomes okay. Whether you think someone else has “more than they need” is up to you, but you have no right to steal from them and redistribute their wealth.

Fun fact: According to the Fraser Institute in 2016, taxes eat 42% of the average Canadian family’s income, compared to only 38% for the basic necessities of life. And that’s not including how much the cost of those necessities is driven up by taxes elsewhere in the supply chain.
