Conservatives Give More Than Liberals

Arthur C. Brooks, a Syracuse University professor, has a new book coming out titled Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservatism. Here is an article about the forthcoming book.

I haven't read this book, but it looks like one I might pick up. Brooks has researched and has reached the conclusion that conservatives give more generously than liberals. The article states: The book's basic findings are that conservatives who practice religion, live in traditional nuclear families and reject the notion that the government should engage in income redistribution are the most generous Americans, by any measure.

Anybody surprised by this finding? I'm certainly not. When you have a Christian worldview, then you believe that we, not the government, should be helping take care of our fellow man.
