    Yes Or No?

    No.  Every person is different and their political stance has little to do with their concern with others.  I know both liberals and conservatives that want and do help people (probably more conservatives than liberals, but that is just based on the people I know--not the entire population).

    Speaking as a whole, I'd say yes because liberals are more concerned with equal rights for everyone. In actuality, it all comes down to individual, regardless of political party.

    No, I would say both ideologies try to help people from different methods. On an individual level, I'd say it varies greatly depending on who you know. In general, I'd say that liberal viewpoints usually lead to doing things that are easier to put on headlines, perhaps making it seem like liberals are more concerned. That's just from where I see things.

    No.  The way help is offered and the way help is received is the big difference.  We should all be ready to serve, this means to help and we should never be resentful when help is offered, if we do not need it, we can just say "no thankyou."

    I think both sides generally want to help people but the motivation and processes differ in that the Liberals want to help any/all at the expense of everyone else and regardless of how motivated the individual is to attempt to help themselves. Conservatives want to help by giving citizens the freedom and tools to strive for and reach their own goals and promote individuals to build industry and jobs in this great nation not dependency and socialism. Hard work leads to better self esteem and better odds at success. I think both sides agree that we all need to do our part to help the children, the elderly, the very disabled/handicapped etc....
