Okay, this idea that Democrats don't care to give to charity or to help others in any other way is ridiculous, so I want to officially challenge that with these examples.
The Bidens reported giving $995 in charitable donations last year — about 0.3% of their income and the highest amount in the past decade. The low was $120 in 1999, about 0.1% of yearly income.Quaker/Friends are generally liberal. Here's a list of Quaker charities and businesses.Then-Vice President Al Gore came under fire when his 1997 tax return showed only $353 in donations to charity; he and his wife, Tipper, gave $15,000 to charity, or nearly 7% of their income, in each of the following two years.
Universalists are generally liberal and pride themselves in the idea of helping our fellow man and not just leaving it to God so to speak. I guess they think that some religious people rely on God the way you all think Dems rely on the government. Anyway, some info about their charities.
Some from individual churches.
Jewish people tend to be liberal.
Episcopals are getting pretty liberal.
Humanists are usually liberal.
*Most* (not all, but most) atheists I've met tend to be liberal. Atheist charities.
I think some of you all need to get off of your high horse.
