I take serious issue with Ms. Coulters stereotype of liberals as Scrooges. I am a lifelong liberal and Democrat, and even though I probably make a fraction of what Ms. Coulter makes, I'd be willing to bet I have done far more to help my fellow man than she has. I have bought groceries for families who had none, bought school clothes and supplies for a child who's parents could not afford them, I have given away up to $200 at one shot to help meet the needs of others, with only the request that when they were able, they would "Pay it forward", I have bought Christmas presents for children who would otherwise have none, I have taken addicted, homeless people into my home and helped them get help (one is now a drug and alcohol counselor herself), I have given my own belongings to people who had nothing... shall I go on? It is my observation that a conservative gives publicly, for recognition, while liberals give privately, with no thought of recognition or reward, which is probably why our good deeds so often go unnoticed. As far as religion goes, I believe in God wholeheartedly, but I do not believe in religion, at least as it is practiced. So much evil has been done by man in the name of God. God does not care whether you are Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, etc. What counts is how you LIVE, how you adhere to His word. I admit I fall short of his expectations in many ways, but I won't be doomed to Hell just because I choose to follow Him and His word, not in a public stadium but in private, trying to live as He wants me to, and to do unto others in a way that is not likely to bring me any recognition. Perhaps Ms. Coulter should spend a few months in the lives of your average liberal family before she jumps to conclusions about our generosity.
