How 'Bout Those Red States?

The Democrats care more about the poor? Doesn't look like it. According to the Catalogue for Philanthropy, the average charitable contribution in proportion to income is much higher in states that voted for President Bush: http://www.catalogueforphilanthropy.org/cfp/db/generosity.php?year=2004

Of course, Democrats prefer government welfare programs to private efforts. They resent anything voluntary.

Here's a color-coded chart ranking the states and showing who they voted for (yes, the 25 most generous states voted for Bush):
