It seems that the left ha a lock on the volunteer thing in America. The narrativeis almost if you careabout helping people that can do nothing for you, you are mostly a liberal progressive democrat. So when people have a heart for theese thing they sometimes find themsleves having to identify with those on the left.
This is a problem as I see it.Conservatism and Volunteerism are not mutally exclusive by any means.
I would like to enoucourage more conservative types to do more than stroke a check but to get their hands dirty helping their comminities.
