OF COURSE the NY Times fails to mentions the statistics on liberal vs. conservative charity.

I don't have the figures in front of me, however, I did hear the results of an interesting study on the top local AM Radio station just a few days ago. It mentioned that conservatives (according to voter registration records) give far, far more than liberals.

Not only do conservatives give more dollars in total to charity, but, a greater percentage of conservatives give (any dollar amount) than liberals.

Think about it.

My experience over 33 years with tax returns would confirm that. Overwhelmingly of the returns I have seen or prepared, the leftists give far less than those on the right. The lefties also are less likely to be associated with or devoted to a church of any kind.

Also, I have had the opportunity to see tax returns of "famous" and "prominent" Americans, and I can attest to the absolute stinginess of many on the left, who publicly lambast the rest of us about how we should be helping the "poor and disenfranchised", yet they give NOTHING on their tax returns.
