An Interesting Article on the Presidential Election and Charity

On the heels of last night’s VP debate (which was pretty darn good–both candidates did well), here’s an article a friend of my family linked on her Facebook page (thanks, Nikki!).  A really good read (especially for those of us who will be voting for the Obama-Biden ticket).  It has little to do with political issues, but a ton to do with the Obama-Biden message of “hope” and helping “the least of these.”

About Aaron

Aaron is a follower of Jesus. He's married to his smokin' hot wife Laura and is the father of three adorable girls. He enjoys a robust cigar, a complex root beer, a good movie, writing, football, thought-provoking books, and rousing discussions about subjects you're not supposed to talk about (like theology and politics). Religious people irritate him (because he once was one). He's on a quest to find the perfect dry rub and sauce for ribs.

    Biden loves to be generous with OTHER PEOPLE’S money. He simply doesn’t practice what he preaches.

  2. Aaron says:

    Unless you call federal income taxes “donating to charity” (and that “charity” being Uncle Sam), this just smacks of hypocrisy. Biden was right about the middle class (which, by the way, he’s not a part of) being the “economic engine.” Like the article says, the middle class is the engine behind the funding for churches, hospitals, charities, etc.
