There's a big difference in conservatives compassion and liberal compassion. I believe many liberals feel superior to those they 'help' and when they give to them,it is as if they are their masters and when they 'help' their peons...they own them. The old slave mentality.
Conservatives see a need and they try to fill it.They give much,much more to charities than do liberals.That's documented.Also,most conservatives are church goers and support their churches with their tithes and offerings.
If everyone had a local church and supported it as is their Godly duty,we would have no need for charities,or Rescue Missions and other refugee havens.The church would look after it's own.Families would stay together.Compassionate Conservatism.
