    I agree that it isn't productive to get in their face to try and change their mind. At least, not overtly. Slamming them with the facts and with the truth may just give them enough food for thought.

    Also, it isn't likely that a rabid, but ignorant Bush supporter is going to admit being ignorant or wrong in front of a Demo.  I don't want them to confess their sins (heh). I just want them to change their vote, which they can do powerfully and quietly...without incurring the wrath of family and friends.

    Need a bumper sticker?

      I don't want their regrets, confessions or apologies. I just want them to think harder about how they vote, and to open their minds. Just as I don't vote for every Democrat just because they're a Democrat - I usually vote a split ticket in most elections, because I vote for the best candidate regardless of their party affiliation. But I do want them to realize that voting a straight GOP ticket doesn't do them any favors.

      Time for America to go on a new No CARB diet: NO Cheney Ashcroft Rumsfeld Bush!
