I have only one friend that I am still friends with that is conservative. The reasoning is that we grew up together from 1st to 5th grade. If not for the fact that we grew up like brothers, we would not be friends. However, I recently have had enough of his political posts and have been responding back to his as well as posting my own. All of my posts are respectful and insightful. The most recent dialogue is on the Romney videos. He of course agrees with them, him being a son of a wealthy anesthesiologist and himself being one now too.
His most recent post was this:
"if you only saw the people that we see all the time...
That aside, my main issue is sustainability. It is impossible to fuel a never-ending parade of elderly and disabled. When people have fewer kids, and the elderly swell and balloon, there will not be enough to pay for them all. It is unfair to siphon off more and more from others to fund these never-ending black holes. Social security, Medicare, Medicaid, and the like are endless programs that were short-sightedly implemented without thinking about the long-term cost. It is impossible to sustain, even if you did take an even greater percentage of other's income. What it really comes down to is fairness between people, and blatant, ever-more present income redistribution is not fair."
please help me nicely dissect his post part by part and come up with a response that you think will be as powerful as my response to his belief in the death penalty even though he is a staunch catholic. " god said thou shalt not kill, not, thou shalt kill only when you deem it right to."
