To Leaf I say that I am conservative and I feel empathy for others which causes me to act! I care deeply for the unborn's right to life which is only ONE reason I am conservative; I believe justice begins in the womb and I deeply care for their lives. It is very damaging to our nation to claim that it is either liberals or conservatives that have empahty; this attitude divides and does not strengthen us as a nation. I am amazed how polarized our nation has become. Because I care for the poor, I started a non-profit that helps the poor, but I help them in a way that gives them dignity. Again, I believe we must look at our personal giving records and our personal actions to others to reveal if we have true empathy or mere talk.
