Jeff and I are on polar opposite ends of the political spectrum. That's okay. Even on the occasions where we have gotten into a verbal knock-down, drag-out (not anywhere near as often since I am no longer that frequent a poster), I've still liked him. I think he's a nice bloke who's just a bit misguided (and, I would hope, he feels the same about me).
On the matter of charity and the attitudes toward the needy of conservatives and liberals, though, I have to agree with him completely.
While SOME conservatives are truly heartless, uncaring swine who should be used as food for the needy, not all, and in fact, not most of them are.
And some liberals are, I will admit, lazy slugs who simply want things given to them and feel it's the government's so responsibility to take care of everything. That is, however, ALSO the minority of them.
I used to, when I lived in Nashville, work the soup kitchen and there were some truly lovely ultra liberal and ultra conservative people who worked along side me. Main difference was that the conservatives felt that the government wasn't in the business of providing sole aid to the needy. The liberals didn't believe that either, by the way, but we DO tend to believe that it is the responsibility of society as a whole to take care of our least fortunate, and that the government is likely the best way to do that.
