If Liberalism is so great

...why do Libs advocate taking other people's money?

If Liberalism is so wonderful and helpful and ideal, why don't Libs have any money?

I am excluding Hollywood, where there are lots of rich Libs.
And I'm excluding old money, where people have so much inherited wealth, they are Libs by default.
I mean people have worked and changed their socioeconomic status in a generation or 2.
Why don't Libs have any money to give away?
When is "I'm down trodden " stop, and personal gumption become the main factor?

  • Well, I will tell you, as "Lib" that, according to popular opinion, I am not nor have I ever been on PA.

    My husband and I aren't even considered middle class, but we DO give. We donate money and goods. We donate food to food pantries. We donate clothes to both goodwill and the salvation army.

    We have donated money to the Red Cross, to the American Cancer Society, and to local charities.

    I personally have held down a full time job since I was 18, and had a few part time jobs before that.

    Moral: Don't judge a book by it's cover.

  • Just because you keep putting question marks at the end of every sentence doesn't make this an actual "question". It's more of a rant in the form of rhetorical questions.

  • I'm a liberal and I have money to give. I'm not "Hollywood" or "Old Money". I'm just plain old came from nothing, worked hard, and made something of myself - I'm an engineer. I make 6 figures and I'm more than happy to pay my taxes and help out people less fortunate than myself. And, I'm not alone. You don't know what you're talking about.

    The survey results show that 85% of small-business owners consider themselves "conservative" to "moderate to conservative" while 66% said they are registered Republicans.


     


    With the new Obamacare debacle, I think more business people will be/stay conservative, not fewer, as this is dated 2004.


    What came 1st, the liberalism and lacking a business, or lacking a business, so let's be a Lib?

  • Most of my relatives worked as Blue Collar workers, you know, truck drivers, painters and carpenters,etc.and they were all Liberal Democrats. All the Wealthy people I know are Conservative Republicans. Go figure.....
    But those can be stereotypes and insulting.

  • I think it;s wonderful that you are an engineer, my son is a junior mechanical engineer student.

    But you, nor my son, are entrepreneurs.
