The difference between philanthropy and taxes is with philanthropy you get to pick what sector you want to help.  With taxes, your money will go into the war machine and pay for fighting in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan.

“The US has the lowest unemployment rate ever.”  That is fake news.  If you look at the real story, people are under employed (U6 workers).  Since Obamacare, companies have been hiring part-time employees so they do not need to cover the healthcare needs of their employees.  Part time employees are technically working so are not counted in the official unemployment rate but those people do not make enough money to support themselves.  Additionally, if a person (U3) does not look for work within the past 4 weeks, they aren’t counted. There are 6 different levels of unemployment numbers, U1 to U6 and the government likes to report the most favorable number for their position at the time.
