or he is accurate in his comparison of fascists and their utilization of propaganda
I guess that's a vote for the extremely gullible audience.
Rep to you sir for the funniest post of the year....:grin::grin:
Funniest...as in laughable? Correct? I concur.
Sad. Context cues aren't a strong suit.
if you don't think we are living in a fascist state and that the media has become a tool of this administration
then you need to look in the mirror to find gullible
Your own leader is a direct contradiction to this statement here. How can a whole party be something their leader is not?
Neither side of the government does what you claim above.
I think what you have been doing with these "convince me" threads is attributing your thoughts and beliefs to a whole party and you really can't do that. All anyone has to do is turn on the TV and immediately your claim is debunked.
There's no need to convince Democrats to vote Republican. We don't need their votes. Just need to convince more Republicans to vote Republican, that's all. It's all about turnout.
don't you understand that the OP has done nothing but illustrate the self-righteousness and omniscience of the democrat party? They have a monopoly on truth, virtue, intelligence and honesty.
AND THEY HONESTLY BELIEVE IT TO THE DEPTHS OF THEIR SOUL
if you don't vote democrat then there is something wrong with you. You represent ignorance, evil, and everything that is wrong in the world.
They really believe this!
A large portion of conservatives vote republican only out of a desperate hope to preserve anything of a republic based on liberty. We know that the democrat party offers no hope in that regard.
as mentioned just above....the question is to get republicans to vote republican.
the reason why they aren't is because of the shift to the left of the republican party. of course the media and democrats are telling us that we have shifted to the right and always waive abortion and religion as their evidence. even though nothing can be further from the truth.
but the true difference between democrats and conservatives is the ability to analyze and question your own party. democrats will circle the wagons and defend failure and corruption at all costs in the name of party and perpetuation of their power.
after all.....they need to be in power because they are the only ones with all the correct solutions. everyone else is just getting in the way.
I will give you 4 reasons: 1) Pelosi 2) Obama 3) Reid 4) Wasserman Schultz! That should be enough.
Those a 4 pretty good arguments.
If that isn't enough they are not going to be convinced.
You could have added Barney Frank had he not retired.
A wise man once said "One grown man should not have to support another grown man". So as long as someone else is supporting you....
But about half the demos could give a chit about that argument. They feel they are owed a living and could give a chit if their neighbors are paying for it. Most want a "sugar daddy" and that is what their uncle Sam is...a sugar daddy.
You don't want to be like Fred do you?
Ted Kennedy has been sober for what, four years now?
One the most hilarious posts in a long, long time. Reps +1.
Sadly though---it is also 100% spot on true. First consecutive 4 years of not being drunk for him since birth.
Wonder if his funeral procession drove across the Chappaquiddick bridge? Teddy was going to get around to reporting the accident...once they sobered him up.
My take - I'll use an example.
My husband is not Catholic. I am. We both have a similar belief system, however. I told him beliefs are personal and it is not my place to change his. That if he ever wanted to convert I'd be happy to get him the information, but that I wouldn't even sponsor him so that it'd be his complete free will. That if his belief in converting became that powerful, he'd need to follow through. Been together close to 20 years - he hasn't converted and I'm just fine with that.
Same for politics. If you have to get into an argument with someone to get them to change their vote, then you're making a decision for them and have taken away their free will to an extent. Each of us, regardless of party affiliation, are responsible for voting with our conscience and based on our beliefs and how that particular candidate would affect us as a person, community and nation.
Getting someone to change their vote or vote how you think they should...no thanks. It's throwing a vote away if the person doesn't believe what they're voting in.
icequeen comes thru with another solid post - well done.
But I'd take it a step further. The real question is how do we get people to quit thinking, behaving and reacting in blindly partisan fashion.
Doesn't matter which party's alter you kneel at... if you're a partisan, you're kneeling at the wrong alter.
Kneeling is for faith. Not politics.
