ResNullis: On the other hand, I've ready many articles in the mainstream media about the giving habits of wealthy Dems and wealthy Repubs. The data shows that folks who identify themselves are Dems tend to give far less to charity than folks who identify themselves as Repubs. In fact, there were several rather interesting reports when Kerry and Gore's charitable contributions made the news, since they had given almost nothing, as compared to Bush who had given a great deal.

I wonder how much of the Bush's "charity" giving is to their church? I give to no church, but I give to various "not-for-profit charities" which interest me. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Los Angeles Symphony, Kitten Rescue, Delta Pet Rescue, Habitat for Humanity, and the ACLU. Oh, and a big chunk to Saint Mary's Academy, a Catholic girls school whence my wife graduated. It is in a poof part of town, and tries to gtive the girls in that area a shot at a better life.

There are a couple of big name liberal charitable givers. People like Bill Gates and Waren Buffet come to mind.
