    I pay tax dollars to help the poor. I am not going to give the money to a church so they can use 98% of the money to build a bigger church.

    Your statement is false. Most liberals don't make mroe money then the rest of the world. Most of us are struggling to get by from one paycheck to the next. And how do you know that none of the people on your list have not donated time or money to help the poor. And what about all the extremely wealthy conservatives out there that don't care about anyone else but themselves and how they can make more money.

  • Umm...these are mostly entertainers. The owners of the richest companies and banks in the world are conservatives. These people on your list are rich no doubt, but conservative bankers loan money to countries. I think you are a little confused. Most of the people on your list don't even make it into the richest 1% of the country, who have 90% of the wealth. Those are conservatives.

    I am working hard and am comfortably well off and am happy to pay high taxes to help the poor and sick , because that model of government, gives the highest standards of living and equality as is evident by looking at the countries of Scandinavia.

    I have plenty to left to donate to charity, anyway, I work very hard, I am proud of my contribution to society, not begrudging of it. I would feel ashamed if my fellow countrymen underwent hardship or were forced to endure sickness and ill health, because I couldn't give a toss about them or was too tight to pay enough tax.

    Source(s): Maybe if you stopped being so miserable and negative and stopped trying to blame other people for your shortcomings and step up to the mark you rightwingers would have happier lives. If you are unhappy about the amount given to charity, maybe you should reconsider your giving, rather than trying to falsely accuse others of not giving, maybe ease up on the generalisations and get real

    Wait just a minute all Liberals are poor don't you know that it is only the Conservative Republicans that are rich.

    Well that is what the liberals would say.

    Don't rightly know why the Democrats thing they know what poor people want are need, haven't a clue.

    The liberal machine is out of control they think you can spend the Country out of debt shows you they did not finish school are they failed economics 101 in high school.

    really we make more money. Because I'm constantly told that all Liberals are parasites living off the government. Make up your mind. And for your information I do give money to various charities so I'm not he hypocrite in this situation.

    One thing Liberals and Conservatives have in common is that they don't give a **** about the poor.

    Let's be fair.
