    Your dad may or may not rethink his position enough to change his vote, but some people will.

    •  I have no idea how he plans to vote this time but (12+ / 0-)

      at least he hated Bush Jr enough to vote for Nader in '04!

      I doubt I'll ever get him to support Obama or Dems, but the less he hates them and the more he understands them (us), the better. Then maybe he'll stop spreading nonsense around when he talks to his friends, anyway. It's better than nothing!

      Stop the party of Gut & Spend policies that gut our Earned Benefits programs like Social Security and Medicare and spends on tax breaks for the wealthy elite.

        at least it'd be one less vote for Romney.

        Don't kid yourself. One conversation versus months and years of propaganda.

        I just don't bother trying to convince right wing nuts of anything. They are a lost cause. But the low info voters who don't listen to any news at all, they can be pursuaded. Those are the co-workers I try to educate.

        I can only hope and wait for the youngsters to take over this country and all the elderly Glen Beck watchers die off.

        Case in point...Brad Pitt's 80 year old Mom. (What a wonderfully enlightened letter to the editor she penned in Missouri! He must be so proud). /snark
