Deep Thoughts by SharpRightTurn


Have you ever noticed that the types of people who want Christ removed from the Christmas season or those who argue that “the rich” should pay more taxes ….are the very same types, respectively, who take advantage of their pay without working on CHRISTmas and don’t freely offer up to pay more taxes themselves?

They like to think they are “inclusive” and “non-judgmental” but they wish to control the freedoms of Christians and “the rich”.

  1. And when it comes to charitable giving, conservatives are way ahead of liberals. In other words we put our money where our mouth is.

    From RealClearPolitics (Which is almost as good as Sharp Right Turn…)

    http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2008/03/conservatives_more_liberal_giv.html

    They include these findings:

    — Although liberal families’ incomes average 6 percent higher than those of conservative families, conservative-headed households give, on average, 30 percent more to charity than the average liberal-headed household ($1,600 per year vs. $1,227).

    — Conservatives also donate more time and give more blood.

    — Residents of the states that voted for John Kerry in 2004 gave smaller percentages of their incomes to charity than did residents of states that voted for George Bush.

    — Bush carried 24 of the 25 states where charitable giving was above average.

    — In the 10 reddest states, in which Bush got more than 60 percent majorities, the average percentage of personal income donated to charity was 3.5. Residents of the bluest states, which gave Bush less than 40 percent, donated just 1.9 percent.

    — People who reject the idea that “government has a responsibility to reduce income inequality” give an average of four times more than people who accept that proposition.

    A Blessed Christmas to you!

  2. One more thought (From Mike Adams, University of NC , Wilmington):
    When liberals have these we-should-do-this and we-should-do-that ideas, we should ask them 2 questions:

    “1. What are you presently doing to alleviate the problem?

    2. Why should the government force others to do things you are unwilling to do yourself? It is unlikely that the person will be able to identify anything he is doing to alleviate the problem. And his answer to the other question will be that no one will do these things unless compelled by the government. In other words, he will have admitted that, in his view, government, not God, must redeem man and save him from his sins of omission.”

  3. Boria,
    Wow…excellent points. I don’t think I’ve seen those states from RCP. I don’t doubt any of it.
