We’ve known liberals are cheap, miserly (dare I say niggardly?) in their approach to charity which actually requires giving one’s own money away instead of passing laws to force the rest of us to fund charitable causes.
Those who followed politics during the embarrassment of the Clinton brothel years remember that Bill Clinton donated his used underwear to charity in order to gain a tax credit. This fits right in with new data on who gives and who does not give.
We now have proof that liberals are cheap and conservatives are generous. A recent report from The Chronicle of Philanthropy reveals that wealthier – more liberal – Americans gave less money to charity in 2012 than they gave in 2006. Conversely, poorer people gave more during the same period.
The 17 most generous states all voted for Mitt Romney in 2012 and not surprisingly, the seven least generous states voted for Barack Obama.
Clearly people understand that being charitable means a bit of personal sacrifice on their part. The breakdown of charitable giving shows that by region, the South, our most conservative region, is the most giving and the Northeast, which is the most liberal part of the country is the least charitable.
The city that is on top of the giving list is Salt Lake City and the least giving town is Hartford, Connecticut.
By every measure poverty actually correlated with giving. The more poverty in an area, the more generous the area is in helping others.
Religious people are more charitable. Those in Utah, Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee–all very religious states–are the biggest givers in the country. The least religious state of all—Vermont–is just a touch better at giving than its irreligious neighbor New Hampshire.
This probably has to do with the fact that New Hampshire has been infected by liberals who, having destroyed Boston, have moved to bedroom communities in the Granite State.
Boston and Hartford are joined at the bottom as the cheapest liberal cities by San Jose and Providence.
We of the Red States are better people. We are better by every measure; and in many ways we pull the wagon of American exceptionalism which parasites in the Blue States are happy to sit in.
