Who gives the most to charity: conservatives or liberals?

The Letter to the Editor by Rob Kerchner  (Defining difference) in the March 27 Signal is both unjustified and prejudicial.  Unless Mr. Kerchner has telepathic powers, how could he possibly know what all “liberals” or most “liberals” or even one particular “liberal” may be thinking when it comes to whether they want the government, private enterprise, or little green Martians to duplicate in this country something they see overseas?

Mr. Kerchner states “...conservatives believe in (and donate more to) voluntary personal charity, while liberals believe in (and vote more for) government-forced redistribution.”  

How could Mr. Kerchner possibly know this?  Does he have access to people’s voting records?  Does he have the donor lists of charitable organizations and the official political affiliations of said donors?

If the answer to these two questions is “no,” then Mr. Kerchner’s statement must be based solely on what he wants to believe, and not on any verifiable evidence.
