“A liberal is a person who will give away everything he doesn’t own”

"A liberal is a man (person) who will give away everything he doesn’t (they don’t) own” has been credited to Frank Dane (in the 1980s and in internet newsgroups since 2000) and to William F. Carling (since 2008). It is not clear who Frank Dane is or when the quotation was made.
