Who is more likely to live by the golden rule?
The left since they practice it. The right doesn't know what it is.
Republicans want to rob you blind and feed the military, Wall Street and lobbyists
Democrats want to rob you blind and feed Wall Street, entitlements, and lobbyists.
The right follows the golden rule more than the left. Here's why: the right basically wants to be left alone (lower taxes) and also expects no handouts from the government. But the left always wants more handouts unless they have to pay for it themselves. This is why they always want to tax the "rich," not themselves.
Neither is inherently more likely, it entirely depends on the individual.
Ridiculous! The left says do unto others and take credit for it! Leftists don't give of themselves, they only take from others to give.
Does the right give of themselves?
Whom does the left take from that does not include themselves?
Not speaking for everyone on the right, nor even all Christians, unfortunately, but we believe in voluntary charity. You will find many churches across the country which minister to the homeless, poor, hungry, and otherwise needy people that they find in their towns. What we don't believe in is the government taking from those who have and distributing it to those who have less. Forced charity is not charity at all – it is theft. And government welfare programs have been demonstrated to actually keep the poor in poverty, rather than helping them to lift themselves out of it. The Democrats in Congress tend to fall back on that type of solution, but I am not accusing all liberals of supporting it. 😃
I agree on all counts. But my question was meant to refer to common, day-to-day interactions. No welfare programs or politics involved. Just in general.
Both in some ways, and in some ways both don't.
