What I sent to all my Liberal "Friends" about tommorow and the election. Thoughts?
self | 11/5/2012 | self

Posted on 11/05/2012 6:06:49 AM PST by GlockThe Vote

With regard to the election tommorow I will say it again:

All of us are held to certain level of accountability by our employers, clients, customers, etc to where if we screw up and do not perform as promised when we were hired, we are FIRED. Our jobs and services, while important of course, are far less important and consequential than who runs the nation and makes decisions literally of life and death.

Why would anyone in any good conscience ever think to hold the POTUS of the USA to a lesser standard of accountability than we are every day for a job far more important and meaningful?

If any of us performed so poorly relative to the promises we made to our clients and employer as Obama has to us taxpayers relatuives to the promises he made in 2008, we would be fired on the spot and shown the door. Its not a matter of emotions, likability, symbolism, or anything else, just sheer fact. Whether its the debt, deficit, ObamaCare, transparency, corruption, etc - the list of broken promises is longer than the phone book.

Now - as far as Romney goes, he was not my first choice and will probably dissappoint us too. I'm not emotionally invested in these politicians like people were in 2008 to where they would sell their kids' kindneys and organs to get obama elected, but considering Obama thinks he has done a good job, as ludicrous and insane as that it is, and is promising more of the same crap over the next 4 years, I'm ready for change with eyes wide open.

Ask your lefty pals this question: Should BENGHAZI-COWARD Obama resign now, or wait until November 7 th to resign as a Revenge-filled, Lame-Duck failure?

A friend of mine has been sending similar letters to his liberal relatives and his lib sister in law always responds with “the media is lying about his record. African Americans can’t seem to get a break”. That seems to be the common thread among libs. Heads in the sand.

Libs are brainless twits that have been programmed to vote dem no matter what the circumstances. Some are waking up but most are a lost cause.

I agree with skeeter

Waste of time......

The average Dimrat voter has been spoon-fed so much crap over the years they can't even tell by the smell that they're really standing in the middle of a mountain of sh!t ......

If they can't see it or smell it, writing it down for them won't change their course.......they're going to have to experience something on the magnatude of what is happening in New York and New Jersey before they MIGHT even consider re-evaluating their affiliations.....

I live here in NYC and tried to be sort of nice about it. If I called him a communist and thug - they would not even read it, not that they will this.

To me, obama is rat turd and a commusit traitor, as are those voting for him.

Heard a lib interviewed the other day. Four years of disasters, lies, failures, and scandals of Obama and the reason he gave for voting Obama: Romney has offshore investments.

Imagine an NFL head coach who has had four terrible seasons, each one worse than the previous. You think he would get a new four-year contract from the team?

Agreed. We tend not to hold our politicians to messianic heights as the democrats do. However, their notion of what a messiah is leaves a lot for interpretation and desirability. We will have to wait and see what Romney does. I think the first term, he will do everything he can to keep his word to us and to get the country turned around. Like I said, we’ll have to wait and see.

I wonder where the democrats are that hated ObamaCare are. Hence my vanity question about how absentee ballots are counted. I wonder how many democrats will vote Romney on an absentee ballot.

I think the majority of libtards are hopeless. I am still hearing from them “yeah but obama would have done a better job except for the last 8 years (Bush's fault)”. These people are stuck somwhere in the past (family,college,the 60,s) hopeless!

Actually just after I posted that I was thinking that maybe the way to appeal to your friend is to say "Look at what's happening in New York and New Jersey? That's governments' inability to save the day....people are dumpster diving for Christ sake....unions are turning away non union workers coming to NY and NJ to help and the politicians are doing nothing to stop it......people are freezing and starving,..... etc. etc.

Tell them not to believe you....just look around and open their eyes to the suffering that has been caused by big governments failures.

I'm sure at this point though your friend will start to blame Bloomberg and Christie........so you had better figure out how you're going to answer that one too......

Or imagine you owns a fortune 500 company. The company offers both products and services. It has full departments of marketing/product planning/sales/advertising, finance/accounting, legal, IT, manufacturing, installation, etc. The company even has it's own in-house medical staff, cafeteria, security, facilities maintenance, and custodial departments.

Name one job that Barack Hussein Obama would be qualified to do in your company if he applied for work there. I can not come up with a single one.

Logic won’t get them out of a position logic didn’t get them into.

A lot of them actually think The Won has been doing a splendid job - either they heartily agree with his plan to destroy the country, or they enjoy getting their free Obamaphone.

Remind them that future hopes for a peaceful transition of power require two things:

- Legitimate and fair elections
- The willingness of people to live by the vote of the majority

Past history does not guarantee future behavior. American conservatives were surprised and taken off guard by the behavior of liberals during Bush v Gore. We will not be surprised again.

Agreed. I have relatives like that. You try to engage in a reasoned dialog and they simply parrot their pet phrases to annoy you...with a stupid grin on their faces.
"Why do you need a gun?
"Bush lied and people died."
"There were no weapons of mass destruction."
"Republicans are such racists."

I simply avoid political discussions in their presence. It's healthier that way. For them.

I got in a facebook argument w my HS history teacher who was trying to get me to explain my need for a semi auto AR. I gave the many arguments and at the end of the day said “Its legal, deal with it”

Anyway , this clown was bragging about how he bought a BMW Z4 that tops out at 165mph.

I asked him why he needs a car that does 3 times the legal speed limit and whether having such capability at his hands considering he is not trained to drive 165mph presents a risk to the public?

Fit of rage and defriending ensued. LOL. Its just too FNG easy to destroy these idiot leftists at their own games.

Pray all you want, I’m sure the Almighty will not mind. But I’ve come to my concluding numbers by logic and hard facts. If Obama is so popular and so assured of victory, why are so many Dem politicians avoiding him like the plague. Why is enthusiasm to vote higher with GOP’rs higher than Dems, yet not reflected in the final numbers.

Even if you assume a D+7 turnout rather than a R+1/D+1 turnout, you cannot discount a Romney Indy advantage of anywhere from +8 to +22 in recent polls. You also cannot discount the fact that Obama has bled 10%-13% of Dem voters as well.

One other thing. Why with all the LSM talk of Obama’s momentum is the fact that even Dem pollsters see that the House is unlikely to turn to Dem rule and that they may lose seats.

Prayer doesn’t hurt. I’m praying too. Heck, I thought McCain would win. But I was thinking with my heart and not with my head. But the facts and figures just point to the logical conclusion that Romney will win this in a walk.

Actually, when you talk to a "Liberal," you should focus on the priorities of that individual "Liberal!" You may not be able to convert him or her, but you can alter the enthusiasm level--a first step, which might just take away an Obama vote, tomorrow, either directly or by lessening the likelihood that the "Liberal" will help others to get out the vote.

For example, you are talking with a person who wants to support Obama because he wants to spend more on education, health-care, or something of the sort. Turn the attacks on Romney, over his record in Massachusetts, to advantage. Make your pitch on the inefficiency of having the Federal Bureaucracy intrude on concerns, traditionally handled at the State level--handled efficiently by Romney at the State level.

Even someone who likes more Government in our daily lives, can understand how wasteful--even with an eye at his, not your priorities--it is to add a very, very expensive layer of additional bureaucracy--moreover one which adds too many cooks to the preparation, calling up another point.

Put you argument in a non-aggressive, simply questioning what works best mode. In a certain percentage of cases, if you are able to gently introduce doubt, that doubt will grow, after you have gone on to work on someone else.

I have picked only one type of issue. But the method is adaptable to anything important to your target. For one taken in by the ACLU, for example, ask if he is comfortable with the way Home Land Security is being developed. Ask the "Liberal" if this is not disturbing, if even with a "saintly soul' (assuming that for the immediate purpose of reaching someone who may be that delusional) like Ms. Napolitano, he is comfortable with having a new agency with the potential role & fire power of a Gestapo? Again, put it in the form of a concerned question--without pushing your own opinion of the answer, in any sense aggressively.

I applaud your efforts and know how frustrating it is to shed some much needed light. I’ve considered doing something similar with my few remaining lefty friends, but decided that after months and months of attempting to share the truth with them, they just exhaust me!

The only success I’ve had was during the WI mess, the behavior of the union thugs definately aided in showing them the reality of things.
