Isn't it interesting that the people least likely to donate to charity are the "caring" lefties? They "care" too little to actually hand over their hard earned money, but instead want the rest of us to hand ours over.

This isn't the first time someone has come up with this "but if the government didn't force me to I wouldn't get around to donating money to all the causes I care so much about" argument on the Net, because it seems to be one of the few half-rational arguments these people can come up with. Of course there's no rational argument for extending taxation to the rest of us just because they want Big Brother to come around and beat them up if they can't be bothered to hand over money.
