  •  why I own guns (0+ / 0-)

    Most Republicans own guns because they fear blacks even if they live where few black people do. I own guns because I fear Republicans. Lots of them where I live.

      And what scientific studies have you conducted that lead you to conclude that?

      There are four boxes to be used in the defense of liberty: soap box, ballot box, jury box and ammo box. Use in that order.

      •  an opinion only (0+ / 0-)

        Yes that's what it is based on anecdotal evidence consisting of conversations with conservatives in my area. I don't think I cited to a study nor do I have to to have an opinion. Certainly, you could disagree but there is no study to refute it. That said the point of the post is to use the hyperbole that our opponents use. Yes,we progressives want to appeal to the rational. Based on what I read from the social scientists people don't vote as a rational decision but on the basis of emotion.That's why the right excels in communicating in soundbites. I believe we should get better at that or get comfortable in a long term minority.

    •  Yeah I would love to see that backed up (7+ / 0-)

      by research instead of opinion.  Lets hold ourselves to a higher standard than we assume our opponents do.

      I own guns in Pa because I like to shoot.
