Liberals Aren't Just Tight, They're Miserly

CNN has just concluded its analysis of the wealth of our national leaders. 40 of the nation's 100 senators are millionaires. For all the image building done by the nation's liberals trying to portray conservatives as the filthy rich who care nothing about the less fortunate, the results show that the number of rich Republicans and rich Democrats are running neck and neck.

That being said, of the top ten richest Senators, 8 are Democrats. Now understand, I have no problem with anyone being rich so long as it was obtained in a legitimate, moral way. What I have a major problem with is the way the rich--normally the liberal rich, excoriate "the rich" as a class and work hard to make themselves appear like they're "one of us."

Remember John Kerry's famous, "Can I get me a huntin license here?" (misspelling intentional) and now Barak Obama's peeps are working hard to make him seem like the guy next door.

Let's be honest, none of these guys and gals on either side of the aisle are "one of us." So let's stop the nonsense making it appear they are. But even more, let's stop the lying which makes it appear that conservatives are all about the green backs and liberals are all about the people. Actually, if anything, the opposite is true.

That's right conservatives truly are more generous, more giving, and truly more compassionate than liberals--by far!

George Bush and Dick Cheney for example give pretty close to 10% of their income to charity and that seems to have been an established practice before they were in the limelight of politics.

Al Gore's income tax records showed he gave a measly $353 to charity in 1998 and former President Bill Clinton once claimed a $75 deduction for donating a suit with ripped pants to the Salvation Army, as well as $2 for a pair of used (ew!) underwear and $9 for six pairs of used socks.

Obama, the year before he ran for office gave barely $1000 on an income of $259,394. That's not cheap; that's downright stingy. I have to tell you, this conservative Christian gives about 9 times as much on an income no where even close to Obama's.

So please, when you hear the political rhetoric from liberals accusing conservatives of being miserly realize they sure don't put their money where their mouths are while conservatives most assuredly do.

I wonder how the rest of our political body stacks up, i.e. state reps, senators, mayors, etc.? This sounds like great material for a LTTE. :)

Geez, Mr. Cripe, for someone how CLAIMS to be Christian, you sure do like to pass judgment an awful lot. Who gave you that right? It certainly was the god of the Christian bible. That bible states that you shall not judge, lest ye be judged.
