Just listened to Obama’s speech where he talked about how “compassionate” and “caring” we all should be. I have a simple, sincere, serious question:
Who is more “compassionate” and “caring”…those who want the government to take care of everyone, or those who are willing to take care of their neighbors themselves?
It brings us back to the book that came out a couple of years ago (Who Really Cares? ) that showed definitively that Conservatives not only donate more to charity as a percentage of income, regardless of the level of that income, but they are also more likely to participate in charitable, and specifically secular charitable, activities.
So what does compassion have to do with big government liberalism (which is most decidedly what Obama is pushing for: higher taxes on the rich, univeral health care, fleecing “Big Everything)
