That is just delusionally funny! :) Liberals 'give' their ideology only. They see the 'good' government taking taxes and giving it to the 'needy' as their giving. That exempts them for giving individually (in their minds). Conservatives, whether wealthy, middle class or even poor, give their own personal time and treasure directly to those in need more abundantly. They do not rely on the middle man (government) to do it for them. They don't like the messiness of helping others. That way they can simply sneer and feel better than others without having to actually do the work or directly sacrifice. They 'sacifice' other people's time and money and feel good about themselves. There are exceptions, but that is the fundament6al difference.
