You're supposed to love everyone, everywhere. Even your worst enemy. Even the person who takes the money from you that is supposed to be used for food and runs in the liquor store. If he comes back and asks you for money again you are supposed to give it to him again, and again.
So why can't you do both? Where you live and everywhere else.

I could agree with that. For example, we'd have far fewer nonsense cases clogging the courts as people would give freely and not bicker like the current property line dispute I'm in...3 inches *sheesh* and we'll probably be in court for years and waste untold thousands.
However, I'd say that what would be best would be to transfer all of that energy into doing good and charity...public works, FEMA, education, healtcare and the like...so at the most government would stay the same size. Although I'd personally like to see it bigger.
