It is a bit stupid.

I've argued with liberals before using this very point.

They know that everything they hate runs on taxes but they want to give them more. I've asked them, "wouldn't you rather just take the amount of money you hand over to the government and hand it directly to a struggling minority family or individual?" and they have no rational response.

Assuming, as they do, that only liberals care enough to help, that's a huge % of what would be tax money—spent on stuff they hate—going directly where they want it to, and would amount to much more money going to these people than it is currently, where everyone, even stingy conservatives, are paying.

1) Start an organization called "Charitable Liberals".
2) Allow anyone to join and allow the poor to register.
3) Assign a family or person to each Charitable Liberal member.
4) Give directly to that family or person.
5) Rinse and repeat.

Even if liberals were the only ones giving, FAR more money would reach the needy and there'd be FAR less collateral damage (aka murdered innocents) this way. But everyone knows that it wouldn't be all or only liberals giving, which means FAR FAR more money going to the needy.

But they'd much rather fund the war machine and buy multiple homes for criminal politicians with the bulk of their labor.
