Me: Last time, we were having a conversation and I made a very bold statement you construed as discriminatory; I would like to attempt to explain if you don’t mind
You: I am all ears.
Me: Do you remember what the question was?
You: Of course I do.
Me: Great! Would you refresh my memory?
You: With great pleasure.
Me: You must be in good mood today
You: Last time, you made the statement that republican constituents are dumb.
Me: I did?
You: Yep, you sure did. Can you explain?
Me: Let’s see. Why did I make such a statement? What were we talking about?
You: nothing really.
Me: Well, I know. I think I need to re-phrase my statement.
You: Glad to hear that.
Me: I think I made a slight mistake in making that statement; the way I see it today is that most republican constituents are dumb.
Me: I would go as far as saying that most republican constituents do not think for themselves.
You: What do you mean by that?
Me: Well, look around you. Whatever they hear on the radio, on TV or from an elected official, they outright believe it and go around repeating it.
You: Democrat constituents do the same thing too, don’t they?
Me: I am not sure about that. I think democrat constituents fall under a different category: they are fanatics.
You: same result!
Me: Not quite.
Me: Fanatics are inclined to support an idea, a point of view and be passionate about it.
You: That’s your opinion.
Me: Of course it is. Let me ask you a question
Me: Why are you republican?
You: Well, republican have conservative values and I happen to support that position.
Me: Fantastic! I am sure you heard that from someone but have no idea what that means.
You: I know exactly what I am saying.
Me: Do you?
Me Do you really?
You: You bet I do.
Me: Ok. Can you give an example of conservative values supported by republicans?
You: I can give you plenty of examples; for starter, republicans oppose abortion, so do I.
Me: What else?
You: They oppose Gay marriage, so do I.
Me: Very good. What else?
You: Republicans value christian faith, so do I.
Me: Really? I will come back to talk more about those topics you mentioned but…
Me: I am still confused as to where: a) Owning FireArms b) Supporting Death Penalty (to name only those) fall in the Conservative Values scale.
Me: Can you shed some light there?
You: Well, I.. I’m… hmm!
Me: I know, you heard someone say those are conservative values and you are simply repeating it
Me: What’s conservative about Death Penalty?
Me: Let’s reconvene again tomorrow to continue this conversation. You should have plenty of time to think.
