So everyone knows how Republicans/Conservatives are rich, greedy people who only care about themselves and how Democrats/Liberals are the sweet, compassionate ones, right? Well I personally never really bought the whole, republicans are for the rich and liberals are for the poor line, so I decided to do a little research on the matter... Yep, I googled it and here's just one of the many articles that I found that not only showed that Conservatives give more time and money to charity than Liberals do but... That's right, on average Liberals have higher incomes than Conservatives.
-- "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"). Read full article here
So in other words, Liberals are great at giving away other peoples money but when it comes to their own... Eh, not so much!
