Our Governments are so Benevolent

In Europe we see so many in government that are ready to accept refugees on our part. From Angela Merkel to the left wing socialist Groups in the UK, all believing that refugees need help and that we should provide it.

Portugal has offered to host 10,000 of the refugees who’ve landed on Europe’s shores from the globe’s war-torn zones. So far, it has taken in 234. (Here)

A newly-registered German NGO wants to transport refugees from North Africa and the Middle East into Europe via planes instead of highly dangerous sea routes. Organizers plan to raise money for plane tickets and amend an EU directive that fines airlines for ferrying migrants.(Here)

Some countries in the EU are readying to bully other European nations that refuse to accept refugees from the Middle East and North Africa

If two-thirds of the EU members agree, a proposal from the European Commission would institute a 250,000 euro fine  ($285,000 USD) on countries who refuse asylum seekers from the Middle East and North Africa who are coming from one European country to another.(here)

BRUSSELS—Europe expects more help from the U.S. and Canada on refugees as it struggles with a rise in populism and xenophobia, a senior European Union official said, as the world’s leaders gather in New York for the United Nations General Assembly. (Here)

Personally I would question the legality of politicians inviting refugees into the country under laws which they themselves made, but were not elected on those terms.

A Government is there to run the country, and not to hand out favors to whom they chose, which, is described so much better than I could by Davy Crocket  (Here)

I believe too that Governments overreach themselves when you stop to consider welfare of any sort. They hold the purse-strings on behalf of the people, not their own slush funds.
