In response to:

The Horrors of FEMA Disaster 'Relief'; the Glory Private Efforts

I got this email- I know this one won't go anywhere, but every charitable conservative needs to memorize the Red State/Blue State map and refuse to donate to the Red Cross or any other organization specifically for natural disasters in Blue States, thinking in terms of Hurricane Sandy that hit the Blue States of the Northeast before the election. These Blue States are already getting money from us via their demands that the Federal Government pour billions of tax dollars into their relief while the Federal Government and FEMA ignored tornadoes, blizzards and floods in the Red States of the Midwest that were equally if not more destructive over the past several years.

If something happens close to you I know you will help.

I totally agree. I cannot see the East Coasters helping us on the opposite coast or even the terrible flood in Iowa, so no help from me. I will take care of friends and family who have lost their jobs here thanks to Obama! However, note that FEMA has not bee a great help to these people and, as usual, want your arm and leg before they will help you. Yep, Obama, you is one good prez! NOT!

If Blue States want to vote for bigger government, let their help come from the bigger government they chose for the rest of the nation. After Washington, DC takes their cut and adds the red tape, maybe our Blue State neighbors will realize what Ronald Reagan meant when he said government isn't the solution, it's the problem.
Statistically conservatives give more to charity than liberals by huge percentages, so this request will not impact anyone impacted by the storm (admit it, you've probably already sent a check or two to the Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy victims, and you've probably dropped off a bag of groceries or clothes at your local church that is gathering relief items to take to the victims--

and if you haven't dropped it off this email is not going to change your mind).
Nothing will stop us from doing the right thing even though we conservatives want to destroy the planet, force everyone to drink polluted water, breathe dirty air, preserve traditional marriage so that all children can have the security of a two parent home in this dangerous world (how ridiculous is that?),

keep sexual predators from being Scout Leaders, prevent abortion so that there will be sufficient old people to roll off cliffs in wheelchairs and enough people to kill for corporate profits (after all what corporation relies on repeat customers when dead customer pay so well?), support our military so they can kill innocent civilians who like to wear explosive clothes and blow up innocent people all while acting like they are risking their lives

protecting our nation from the most evil forces in this world and defending our freedom and liberty. We will be impugned as the greatest evil in this nation while we give blood and volunteer and watch for those in need and actually do something to help them instead of talk about it and look around for someone else to do it.

So please, carefully consider this idea. Consider forwarding this to others to provoke a little thought. Remember these Blue State people consider your beliefs to be a mortal enemy, then do the right thing. If we don't do what is right then they have won more than an election, they will have made us as indifferent to human suffering as they are.

I do not and will not give to Fema, or the red cross the bigger part goes to pay high salaries most does not go to the people that need it and if you do get some help you have to beg them for it they think if you feed them some lousy soup they have done their duty as long as the money is passed on along to high salary employee. I will help individuals but not turn it over to a government program.

Yeah, of course.

We want to destroy the planet, drink polluted water, etc, etc.

Don't we live on the same planet? Don't we all drink water and breathe the same air?

Honest to god, the leftwing mindset is truly an alternate reality...

Thought about it and then thought again. No way. I prefer my charity face to face. You live at the ocean, you need insurance or better yet don't live right by the ocean or other waterways. No way to predict when that 100 year weather problem will strike. Yet, they rebuild there again and want us to pay for it! Stupid is as stupid does.
"The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government, and I'm here to help.'" -- President Ronald Reagan

Those wise and yet haunting words spoken by one of our nation's greatest presidents couldn't ring more true -- especially today, as winter sets in on an estimated 130,000 of our fellow Americans who are still struggling without power. Many live without heat, hot water or inhabitable homes and question the government's efforts to alleviate their condition.

Amid the election frenzy, several mainstream media outlets instantly praised the Obama administration's response to the Hurricane Sandy devastation in the...
