    This is pretty interesting. The Center for Philanthropy has the most recent state listings here:

    You can see how these states voted in 2000 here:

    I thought that the liberals and Dems were the ones who cared about the poor and the GOP didn't care about anyone??

    It seems like the top of this generosity list is dominated by Red states. 23 of the top 25 most generous states all voted GOP and these aren't even rich states!!!


    Wait a second, hold on...listen closely and you can [i]actually hear [/i]the sound of liberal embarassment...keep flapping your gums about 'compassion' guys, you're really convinceing us! We'll stay quiet and do what we do best = actually helping the needy, thanks.

    That really is interesting.....23 out of the top 25 states seems like a little more than just coincidence, I gotta admit if someone put a gun to my head and told me to pick either republican or democrat.....which one on average would be more charitable I'd have said republican because for all the bad press we get most of us really do care about charities and such but I never in a million years could have imagined such a disparity.

    When John Kerry was running for the Senate in Mass a bunch of years ago they discovered that he hadn't contributed a single dollar to charity in the previous year, not even $1!!!!

    This is a guy who married into millions (twice). His lame excuse was that he had two kids in private schools and was too busy with his career to "focus" giving to charity.

    Unreal!!!!!!

    Remember the embarrassing contributions of Mr. "I Was Robbed in 2000" Gore?

    These democrat polticians are nothing but lying, stuffed shirts full of hot air and I feel sorry for the rubes that fall for it.

    If only the media would do their job and inform, instead of prostituting the democrats.

    But there's hope because even the most liberal state in America, California threw their bum out. And it was a majority of democrat voters that did it.
