Mythbusting (Red States v. Blue States Edition)

The next time someone tells you that red staters are mean, cold, nasty and don’t care about the human condition thanks to their politics–which supposedly contrasts with the blue state mentality of laudable generosity–be sure to show them this.

This, of course, does not mean that blue staters are not charitable, or that they are not giving of other things besides money (like, say, time). But for all of those who believe that small-government folks are willing and eager to let the poor, the needy and the dispossessed suffer through the rest of their days before dying a miserable death, the article linked above should provide a slap to the face.
