I Hate To Say I Told You So.. But
Americans donated $306 billion last year, according to preliminary figures contained in the closely watched annual report from the nonprofit Giving USA Foundation. After adjusting for inflation, donations rose only 1 percent from the roughly $295 billion donated in 2006.So, despite high gas prices and all the fact that, according to the Democratic party, the country is falling to pieces, Americans have once again given in record numbers. Giving didn't grow as much as it has in previous years, but it still increased.
Because no matter what the nightly news tries to tell you, Americans are essentially good, caring, giving people. Except for those right-wing, extremist, gun loving Jesus freaks. I'm sure they didn't give anything at all, being too busy clinging to their religion and their guns.
At least according to Obamessiah.
Hey, here's a thought for you to ponder. What if the government weren't busy trying to grab as much of your money as it could to redistribute among the masses. Do you think that if we had to rely on charities to help us instead of the nanny state that maybe charitable giving would increase and people would still be okay? You know, like how the world worked before the Great Society?
