From the mouths of babes….

Young Republicans and Young Democrats in Hampton Roads are coming together to raise money for one of my favorite charities, Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia. Joining them will be U.S. Senator Mark Warner and, no doubt, other elected officials from the area.(Click on flier to enlarge.)

The event will be held next Sunday, December 11, beginning at 1pm at Uno Chicago Grill. I hope you find time to stop by.

Kudos to the YDs and YRs for coming together for this.

  1. Very impressive young people. I sincerely hope that they continue to work together and assist in changing the present culture. Don’t have to think the same, don’t have to support the same people. Treating each other with respect as human beings is paramount in the future of politics.

  2. This is what gives hope. Beyond all the insults, arguments and such. I only wish their older counterparts got the message, but as good as this is, there are still lots of people who wish to literally fight with each other over the survival of all of us.

    We should all be so lucky if this is what the future looks like.

    1. When there are two diametrically opposed views on what is best for the survival of us all, of course we are going to fight about it.

      What is interesting is that the Young Democrats are following the conservative model, which is that we as private individuals and private groups are given the responsibility to care for “the poor, the orphans, and the widows,” not the government.

      It is a great thing to give of one’s time and money to help others. Taking from others to do so is still stealing.

      1. When did YDs say “not the government”?

        I didn’t say that. I’ll have to check with the VAYD President, but not sure if he did either.

        Fact is, we ALL have the responsibility to giving to those less fortunate, especially those with the ability to do so. The Republicans may want less government intervention in the lives of the people. I believe it IS the government’s role to care for ALL of it’s citizens(as radical as it may sound). That notwithstanding, that is not stopping either of us as private individuals, organizations and parties to contribute. I’m not going to sit and wait for the government to do what I think it should already be doing, especially here in Virginia.

        And for the record, we set the standard for caring for the welfare of others, not them. That is precisely what makes us better.

          I did not say they said that, either. I just said that that it is the model they are following in this instance.

          Actions speak louder than words.

          > I believe it IS the government’s role to care for ALL of it’s citizens.

          Is this not a supposed to be a government of the people? If the people do not choose to take care of the poor, your saying that the government knows better than the people it is supposed to represent what to do with their money? If the people do not know enough to spend their own money wisely, how can they possibly know enough to vote for people who will?

          > I’m not going to sit and wait for the government to do what I think it should already be doing

          You seem to think that the government should take OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY and give it way. Is that what you are doing?

          > And for the record, we set the standard for caring for the welfare of others, not them.
          > That is precisely what makes us better.

          Who is US and who is THEM?
