    You won't find a pipe organ for 100,000.

    The Democratic party attracts people who want to feel superior, but who don't really do very much to help others.

    If you genuinely believe in God, then it's a gift to spread His word. I can disbelieve without holding the believer in contempt, but you don't seem capable of it. That hubris of yours is vanity.

    For the record, I worked in my major until I got picked up for active duty.

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    I graduated with a Bachelor of Social Work degree in 1986 and have been working as a social worker since 1987.

    I got my degree in Police Science long ago (1972) and worked in the field until I retired. In my adult life, I've had two jobs. One was the military; the other was law enforcement.

    So maybe we're all Republicans and we don't know it. I thought wanting social services and governmental help of the poor made me a Democrat, but I guess I was wrong.

    Seriously Ody, you can't even address my points about your stereotypes.

    Some people are multi-talented. They have the ability to help people with their own money and still want government to help out.

    If you look at Obama's policies, he "helps" wall street, the banks, various corporate lobbyists (Solyndra, GM, etc), and the medical insurance industry. If that's not who you want to help, why do you vote Democrat?

    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.

    http://www.usatoday.com/news/politic...inancial_N.htm

    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.
    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.
    Quaker/Friends are generally liberal. Here's a list of Quaker charities and businesses.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of..._and_charities

    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.

    http://www.charitynavigator.org/inde...ary&orgid=4599

    Some from individual churches.

    Jewish people tend to be liberal.

    http://www.jewishcoa.org/

    Episcopals are getting pretty liberal.

    http://www.episcopalcharities.org/

    Humanists are usually liberal.

    http://humanistcharities.org/

    *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.
