Why don't Hollywood liberals and liberal billionaires give their fortunes to the government ?


With all the talk about paying your fair share, you'd think that the countries wealthiest and most influential liberals would at least give their fortunes to the government as an example since they support a greater role of government and raising taxes on the American people to support it. You'd at least think it was reasonable for them to lead they way by agreeing to live on say 15 million with the remainder going to the government. That would be far more the most people would ever see in their lifetime.

    Ya, I agree, what they really want is to force you to support their pet causes, while they do what they want. It provides a convenient way to look noble with little sacrifice on their part.

    Then why do the liberal google billionaires hide their money in Ireland to avoid paying US corporate taxes. And why have studies shown that conservatives give more to charities than liberals?

    Or maybe they don't want to give you the opportunity to give to who you want to but reserve that right for themselves

    Since "teabaggers" are homosexuals you may have a point. Ignorance is bliss isn't it Libber Lips?

    Ya that's of course true! The real question is that since they believe the government is better equipped to decide how our money is spent, why they haven't given more of their own wealth to the government?
