"To this day I have not heard a good argument to counter what I said."

Well, if your mind is already made up, then nothing will convince you.

75% of Americans donate to charity. That pretty much refutes the Mises quote.

"However, in talking about equality and asking vehemently for its realization, nobody advocates a curtailment of his own present income."

Then why do all the rich "liberal elites", in states like Connecticut, keep voting for politicians who implement some of the highest tax rates in the country?

The fact is, the richest states in the country are the ones who consistantly vote for liberal policies regarding welfare, etc. Yet those states have the most to lose, and the least to gain, from those policies.

Mises is trying to portray "liberals" as being hypocrites - but this portrayal is completely baseless and untrue.
