    Democrats make up for it by giving away other people's money.

    I certainly hope every Republican who makes that observation gives generously to charity. I doubt it though.

    Republicans only give more to charity because they encompass the evangelical population, whose churches are highly refined charity machines. Republicans outside the social conservative demographic aren't remarkable for their charity. Indeed, libertarians are among the least giving of Americans, which is what you would anticipate of people who are constantly arguing laziness and government handouts are the main cause of poverty.

    There was once a website that comprehensively detailed charity by both geography, religion, and political ideology, but it has been buried under an avalanche of partisan articles. Social conservatives in evangelical populations were highest, libertarians were lowest. Or maybe Christian liberals and libertarians were about equal and atheistic libertarians were lowest.

    However, on intuition, there is no reason to believe libertarians give a great deal to charity. The Republican charity numbers are inflated by the systematic charity of the evangelical church network; libertarians would only be party to that to the extent they are participants in the evangelical culture, which they generally are not. Libertarianism is dominant among a completely different kind of American. Evangelicals, for example, are much more favorable to both imperialism and to government welfare and intervention than libertarians.

    Forced, how so?

    The government has taken back the money. 'Force' is a tricky concept here, since the banks were willing to take every dime (and needed to in order to survive) but wished to do so with the minimal amount of increased government control possible. Of course, they were basically bankrupt, so whether or not what the government does counts as 'force' in spirit is questionable.

    In good times, banks are the ones who 'force' government to do things.

    No, you're just rendering yourselves utterly irrelevant by ignoring the majority of Americans and shoving your radical leftist agenda down our collective throat.

    So, if the Democratic Party doesn't tank in 2012, or if they have a comeback in subsequent years, what would you have people make of this statement?

    Americans aren't libertarians. Most of them probably aren't psychologically capable of being so.
