Me: We started a great discussion last time but couldn’t finish it.
You: Well, you’re always in a hurry.
Me: True; I have so many things to do throughout the day.
Me: Let’s see. Last time, I started to explain what I mean by Republican Constituents being dumb
You: At first, you said ALL republicans
Me: Nope, don’t put words in my mouth; I never said that
You: What exactly did you say?
Me: I said republican constituents.
You: Big deal!
Me: And I rectified my statement the other day.
Me: I said most republican constituents are dumb. Listen, we can always come back to debate this; let’s look at your answer regarding conservative values
You: Ok. what about them?
Me: I am still somewhat confused as to the Conservative “qualifier” used for the republican
Me: what’s conservative about <Killing someone who kills> ?
Me: You mentioned earlier something about christian faith which confuses me even more.
You: How so?
Me: Well, let’s see. Christian ought to be loving, caring and forgiving.
You: That is quite right.
Me: And yet, they rejoice at the news of someone being executed
You: I think you have a point here; I never really thought of it that way.
Me: It’s kind of backward, isn’t it?
Me: I’m sure you’ve heard news of “so called conservatives” murdering doctors who perform abortion.
You: Not really!
Me: Where have you been, under the rocks?
You: No need to start the insult.
Me: As far as I am concerned, the word conservative should be banned from being used
Me: Indeed. Pick any example and I’ll show you there is nothing conservative about republicans.
Me: By the way, let me make something clear here
You: Please do.
Me: In order to provide a frame for our conversation, I have to classify the subjects and the actors, thus democrats, republicans
Me: I have no beef with republican or democrats.
You: I am sure you have no beef with democrats; you have been talking a lot of trash about republicans with no mention of democrats at all.
Me: One subject at a time; we will address the democrats in the future
You: Sure you will.
Me: I promise. I find republicans arguments about almost everything very skewed.
You: How do you come to that broad conclusion?
Me: Well, I put republicans arguments through logic and the balance tilted fully to the nonsense side
You: whose logic do you put arguments through?
You: Yours? that’s a laugh.
You: Yeah! Why don’t you give me an example?
Me: Ok. I gave one earlier.
Me: Republicans claim to be faith based christians
You: And we are.
Me: Yet, republicans have no qualm of supporting putting someone to death.
Me: By any logic, this is a very skewed argument; If one is christian and believes in the Bible, one cannot possibly advocate for death penalty
You: Unless what?
Me: All those talks about being christian are just for show.
You: What do you mean?
Me: Well, the people who have advocated being christian do so just to be part of, but they have no conviction
Me: which brings me to the statement I made previously: republican constituents are dumb; they don’t think for themselves. They simply follow a crowd that follows
someone who doesn’t know where s/he is going; that someone is the elected official. The crowd is the constituents.
You: I can’t believe I agree with you, somewhat.
Me: Which part don’t you agree with?
You: Well, let me think…
Me: When I said that most republican constituents are dumb, it’s because I am sure that some (just a few, a handful) do think for themselves; the rest leave the
thinking to Rush Limbaugh and folks at Fox News .
Me: What an irony!
Me: Next time you listen to an elected official, any elected official (democrat or republican), pay attention to what they say and see whether they benefit of it.
You: I understand that all elected officials are liars
Me: uhhhhh! You didn’t just say that.
You: Well, that’s true, but how could you put Rush and Fox News in the same category?
Me: Are you kidding? Tell me you’re kidding.
You: No, I am not kidding!
Me: Remember what started this conversation?
You: Why would they lie about anything?
Me: Why wouldn’t they? It’s no secret that Rush and Fox News (to name only those) are the propaganda machine for the republican party
You: I didn’t….
Me: Most republican constituents are dumb and leave the thinking to Rush and Fox News
You: Well, I am not…
Me: You’re not. Did you ever question what’s said in those networks?
You: Why are we talking about Rush and Fox News, all of a sudden?
Me: It’s not all of a sudden. I was making a point regarding republican constituents’ behavior.
Me: Even you seems to behave the same way as the others.
You: Well, I must admit that I never questioned what’s aired in those networks
Me: Do you think you’re alone?
You: Of course not.
Me: Can you see the problem?
You: I am somewhat overwhelmed by this revelation. I must go now. Let’s reconvene tomorrow.
