Young Republican Was Right About This

Win or lose, after the dust settles form an argument that I have been in, I sit and ponder where I may have been wrong and my opponent may have been right, or at least how he could came to have the viewpoint that he did.  I concede that there were many Baby Boomers responsible for causing our current woes, but I maintain that they were all either liberals, or uninformed sheep.  I also admit that in the past, I have been every bit as guilty for blaming previous generations as he was.  I have written a draft about this, but it’s so long winded that I don’t think that anyone would be interested in reading all of it.

There is one thing however, that Young Republican was undeniably correct about.  That is when he referred to this site (and I am going to add “all other conservative sites”) as a “philosophical echo room”.  

The vast majority of people who visit sites like this are conservatives, so we aren’t going to win over many converts at them. We should all direct the majority of our time and effort towards getting others to join our side.  

This isn’t a matter of defeating liberals.  Someone you have defeated is not going to join you, even if they admit to themselves that they were wrong and you were right.  It is a matter of paying attention, and once you notice uncommitted person say anything concerning how a liberal policy negative affects them, you agree with them and link that to other liberal ideas and policies that have a negative impact on them.  Then, let them know the price they have paid in terms of opportunity costs. The things they, (and our country) could have had, if it weren’t for damage that liberals have caused.  

Winning over new voters a more productive and effective use of our time than preaching to the choir.

Well said Neil and yes, YR was spot on about this.

Well you know me. I'm always trying to find the good in people. BTW, did you know that Charles Manson was a talented musician? He even tried out for a spot on the '60's TV show, "The Monkees"? Imagine how different things might have been if he had made it.

The Conservative Wife said...

Yeah... We might not have had the monkees. I'm just sayin'. Lol

The Conservative Wife said...

I take it you like blues there Patriot? I sang a song for obama in 2008. It's on youtube. I'll give you the link. And no making fun of my singing talent! I can't be awesome at everything you know. Lol

You don't like the Monkees? How can you not like the Monkees? Their show was so terrible, it was awesome! And how about that Monkeemobile?
Can you imagine if Charlie would have made it?
There would have been millions of teen-aged girls saying, "Oh, I just love Charlie, he's so dreamy." Consider this: If Charles Manson would have gotten a part in the Monkees, Sharon Tate (and all those other people) would have never been murdered. If Sharon Tate hadn't gotten murdered, Roman Polanski would have never raped that girl. Imagine all of the human suffering that could have been avoided if only the casting department of the Monkees' could have recognized true talent.

Loved CW, loved. I am married to a musician for now. I do not judge anyone who has the moxie to sing because I do not. Consider it one of my favors to to mankind in general, even libtards.

Rick Lakehomer said...

True Neil but I am I am a Gilligan's Island sorta person, Hogans's Heroes, you get the picture. I think Manson would have gone nutso anyway and what if he massacred the entire cast and stage hands etc. Not excusing what he did at all. He is a POS that deserves no more than a bullet to the head and his body dumped into the ocean.

neil schnurr said...

Unlike with Carly Simon, we know who you're singing about.

neil schnurr said...

Poor Charlie, you make one mistake commit a shitload of heinous crimes, and no one ever gives you a break.

Rick Lakehomer said...

The only break he deserves is the sound of my side by side breaking open as I slide in two shells with his name on them.
