A Little Help For My Liberal Friends
I’ve been hearing a lot of noise lately from my left-leaning acquaintances about how conservatives are mean and selfish and would rather give tax breaks to the wealthy than help the poor and needy. The liberal ethos, being enamored of the prospect of taking other people’s money to assuage their guilt, can’t grasp the possibility that there are other, usually better, means of expressing charity. In fact, there is compelling evidence that conservatives as a group are more generous that their liberal counterparts.
Never fear, though–I, your friendly neighborhood libertarian, have great news for you: the Treasury Department has made donating to the U.S. government as easy as wagging a self-righteous finger in the general direction of some vague “1%.” Let me know how the site works for you.
