The problem is more often an issue of perception. The left winger too often believes that if we do not condone or support taking property from the haves and giving it to the have nots, we lack compassion, empathy, and in general are nasty, greedy people. They cannot understand that to the average right winger, true compassion is helping and encouraging what has a strong track record for working to improve one's situation in life and to reject that which does not. We largely do not support that which has a strong track record of consigning whole demographics to generations of victim mentality, permanent unemployment, substandard living, and lack of motivation to do anything about it.

Which once again proves my Grandma's old adage: some kinds of help are really no help at all.
Sure some don't have a lot of empathy. Just like some hard core leftists don't have a lot of empathy when it comes to a small business owner. However, I think a lot of conservatives are able to empathize with the less fortunate just like most liberals can.
"You're the only person that decides how far you'll go and what you're capable of." - Ben Saunders (Explorer and Endurance Athlete)
Also, there is a subtle difference between empathy for individuals and empathy for a large group.
