Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Red states more charitable in giving than blue states

Go figure.

The eight states whose residents gave the highest share of their income — Utah, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, Idaho, Arkansas and Georgia — all backed McCain in 2008. Utah leads charitable giving, with 10.6 percent of income given.

And the least generous states — Wisconsin, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire — were Obama supporters in the last presidential race. New Hampshire residents gave the least share of their income, the Chronicle stated, with 2.5 percent.

Liberals equate paying taxes with charity.  Uh, wrong.  Taxes are not voluntary.  Charitable giving is.  Liberals are far more generous with other people’s money, not so much when it comes to their own.
