I could understand that of non-Christians, but so many Repugs claim to be Christians, but they are so greedy when it comes to helping those less fortunate.

    It seems to me that people who make these 'we as a society' claims often expect others to do all the work.
    Hey, that's the same way Dems feel about all the tax cuts for the wealthy.

    Why don't the Reps do that then - give your checks to them and leave the rest of us alone to help the poor. More goes to the wealthy and corporations, but I guess Reps don't mind working to supply them with more.

    Can you explain to me how that happens? When I help to make someone else rich it is usually a voluntary exchange of my money for their goods. Win. Win.
    When the government wrests two days of labor from me every week I get little in return except for more government. Ugh. They steal from me so they have sufficient money to hound me to death.

    LOL. If I can make it so can they. But first they need to be unplugged from the democrat machine. They may need to have some therapy so they can realize they don't need some lying politician who promises they won't need to pay their mortgages or their car payments...

    It seems to me the ones with the demonstrated record of giving are the conservatives. The greedy ones are the liberals who give little of their own wealth while patting themselves on the back for taking wealth I created from me in order to buy themselves an additional vote or two.

    The other three of course. I give them money and they give me the things I want. Win. Win.

    Not when they are given more tax breaks, loops and shelters - that cuts into the taxes I pay, because they are not paying a fair share. They are already receiving your money through their service, why do you feel they need to have more?
    When the government wrests two days of labor from me every week I get little in return except for more government. Ugh. They steal from me so they have sufficient money to hound me to death.
    You get to eat food that has been considered "safe" by the government, you get to go to work on roads built by the government, you get protected by the police who are paid by the government, and your boss can't cheat you out of your wages because the government won't allow it - seems to me that you are benefitting.

    LOL. If I can make it so can they. But first they need to be unplugged from the democrat machine.
    Well, by the same token, the rich have already made it, they need to be unplugged from the Republican machine, that want to keep giving them more on the backs of the middle-class.



    They may need to have some therapy so they can realize they don't need some lying politician who promises they won't need to pay their mortgages or their car payments...
    The Republicans are the ones that need therapy, so they can realize that the rich don't need more tax breaks, they were doing fine when they were paying more, and their surplus isn't trickling down like Reps hope.

    It seems to me the ones with the demonstrated record of giving are the conservatives.
    That's a Republican myth.

    No, we are the sensible ones, that know that if left to their own, most Republicans won't give as much as is required by taxing them. Charitable organizations and churches don't have the means or the power to do what is necessary. If left to Republicans, this country will become like Mexico - with the "Haves" and the "Have Nots" - and most Republicans that consent to the Republican's policies will find themselves in the "Have Nots" because I doubt that every Republican is wealthy.

    I'm not talking about the money you spend on their services and goods - unless most conservatives are ignorant to the fact that corporations also get more money through shelters, loopholes and tax cuts. Lose, lose.

    What you are saying is, I don't mind paying for the services and goods, but I want to give the corporations more of my money because they provide me with those goods, for which I paid good money for.

    So if someone, anyone out there is allowed by this tyrannical government, to keep more of the wealth they create, that is an affront to you? That somehow diminishes you?

    I don't want a busybody government that is doing things that are extra-constitutional. I want a constitutionally-based, limited government that does well its very few tasks.

    Most of the rich got there by providing goods and services that make our lives wonderful. They started as I started. Naked.

    Your hate completes you.

    Google it :

    I’d also point out that it isn’t really charity when it is somebody else’s money. Prof. Brooks goes on to point out that the data in terms of private charitable giving indicate that people who he defines as conservatives give far more than those he defines as liberal.
    Here is a starter for you. Charitable Giving: Liberals vs. Conservatives
    I am sure there are more.
