About the rich folk who believe in higher taxes and 'fairness'-- they get the best tax advise to pay less tax, then rarely give charity or volunteer the extra contribution to government. Lot's of rich liberals. Usually folks that were rich or got rich fast and easy.They' re trust fund babies that inherited wealth from hardworking conservative parents (Kennedy, Rockefellers, etc.). Or widows. Many control foundations formed by generous conservatives of the past. Some are actors, movie stars, or even business ceo's who rose quickly to fame and fortune. Why? Guilt. Ego. Hobby. There is a long history of rich conservatives who turn to give back with philanthropy, etc. The liberal calling is to lobby government to force others to give.
