    When is comes down the Free Will of Giving, who really measures up?

    Who really cares for their fellow American, is it the Democrats or Republicans?

    Who is more willing out of the goodness of their heart to help the poor?

    What is the Political Divide on Giving to Charity?

    When it comes to the Truth, there is only one answer........

    Libs are always so willing to Take other peoples money and give it to the poor, but when it comes more directly out of their own pocket, guess what?

    Republicans give a bigger share of their own money to Charities :)

    "A study by Google found an even greater disproportion: average annual contributions reported by conservatives were almost double those of liberals."

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/21/opinion/21kristof.html

    "It turns out that this idea that liberals give moreĀ…is a myth. Of the top 25 states where people give an above average percent of their income, 24 were red states in the last presidential election. "

    Any Surprise?

    Kinda of the point, most people want to help others out of the Goodness of their Heart, most people are against helpers others because they are Forced to, I guess that is where Liberals and Conservatives differ :badgrin:

    I find it disgusting that anyone sinks so low as to use charity as a political point scoring exercise.

    Well, I think you miss the point....

    Liberals are continually ridiculing Conservatives about how we hate the Poor, how we would let them Starve, etc.

    Liberals only use these examples to make themselves look better, but the truth is they only care when they are using someone else's money, or at least that is what I gather from the article.

    Charity should never be coerced through taxation. Not the Government's job.

    Actually Liberals continually ridicule Cons about how their policies hate the poor. Charitable giving has never been a topic of disagreement

    Liberals pass laws to "help the poor" to buy votes; Conservatives give out of their pockets to "give to the poor" for nothing in return. Which is more altruistic?
