So, before going to lunch, I asked my fellow coworkers in my department to join me to donate. One of my admittedly liberal coworkers joined me, since we were going to go originally out to . Anyhow, the fund raiser was a $5 taco lunch at work. I told my coworker that I would donate $10 for the cause. He was shocked, and joined in, with $10 of his own.
He later, while we were at Wendy's said to me, "You know...you're not like any conservative that I know." I smiled at him. "I would have never believed a conservative would willingly donate money without getting anything back in return."
"No, you're right. I did get something back in return. I have my dignity. My ability to know that I tried to help someone in need, and hope that if God forbid I have to be in a similar position, that people will be equally as generous to help me.
I continued, "You see, I don't need a government to tell me when or how much to donate, let alone what to donate to. A true conservative actually relishes the ability to help his fellow man. We do so because we are commanded to do so (see various religious tenants). Only liberals who have lost their touch or belief in God seek for the government to force them into doing anything."
"You know, I think you're right. I wouldn't have donated without at least getting what I thought would be worth a $5 lunch. You, however, have proven that being a conservative may have merit. I'll have to think about that," my coworker concluded.
"It's called being a human being with a heart," I ended.
