Caring for my fellow citizens does NOT mean I want to work to support them for their entire lives, while they stand around and whine about how poor they are. I've been in too many grocery lines while they buy steaks and I can barely afford hamburger.
Caring for the environment does NOT mean that I fall for every hook and line about global warming or climate change. The planet is a living entity and, as such, has every right to go through its own phases in its own time. We have changed it. We have harmed it. We have also worked toward making it better after we've realized how we've changed or harmed it. That takes a caring soul.
