My Two ULTRA-LIBERAL Friends Announced Tonight They are Voting Romney! {VANITY}

Posted on 11/02/2012 8:52:45 PM PDT by publana

I have cut off all ties to my liberal friends except two. The only way we've remained friends the last four years is to not talk politics because when the least casual political topic arose, we would end up not speaking to each other for weeks. These two are as extreme left-wing as anyone can be. They are extreme morons politically.

The only reason I continued the relationship is that they are good people. I have always believed that they *think* they are left-wingers out of ignorance and possibly are one issue voters as they are two women living together for the last 25 years. If they could just be shown the light, they would vote differently. Perhaps I rationalized the relationship, but they have been good friends to me over the years. The help you bury the bodies type of friends.

They started a food trailer business with $20K seed money from a Conservative. They have since borrowed $2K from a Conservative sister and I have given them $10K. With the economy as it is, it has been a struggle for them.

They admitted tonight that they applied for all the various small business help they thought the Democrats would give them. The only people that helped them were we three Conservatives. Since they believed that Conservatives only cared about themselves and Democrats helped one another, it was a rude awakening. Last week they said they could not in good conscience negate the votes of those that helped them. They decided to stay home on election day.

Tonight they announced they have seen the light. The economy that they had stated in the past was fine, is killing them. They need the economy improved and the kicker... they need less government involvement in their business to succeed! They are voting for Romney on Nov 6.

It has renewed my faith in Americans. If these two are voting for Romney, he should win in a landslide.

“They started a food trailer business..”

The “You didn’t built that” may have added a bit to their vote decision too.

My ultra-liberal brother, unable to defend another vote for Obama, told me he was going to write-in Ron Paul. I asked him what part of Paul’s platform he agreed with and he couldn’t give me even one example. Smart money says he’ll vote for Obama but was just embarrassed to admit it. If he feels that way about the man, why give him his vote?

Fantastic! Nothing changes a liberal’s mind like being mugged by reality—in this case Obama’s reality...

FABULOUS news!! I’ve been trying to convince my 1 and only Obama voter friend but I think he’s a hopeless case. He refuses to see the truth for some reason. Oh well, I’ll cancel out his vote so no worries.

I’m especially glad as I didn’t know if I would be able to speak to them again if O won. It was hard to be my bonny self around them in September. I’m glad I chose to not let it get in the way of our friendship. Two more votes and we get to remain friends regardless of the outcome of the election.

My Aunt & Cousin who usually vote down the line D, voted for Romney..& my Aunt is usually a guarantee lib voter, county worker etc..but is also a devout Catholic. After all this time, she’s now seeing the light! Said it was all the talk about birth control, abortion. Could be the fabricated “war on women” is backfiring?
Wonder how many others in same boat??

I have heard a few of these anecdotal comments, but I never take them to heart. What I do consider somewhat reassuring is that I have not heard any of the opposite. Noone who voted for McCain is going to vote for Obama. In 2008 we heard the opposite. There were all the seminar callers to the radio programs stating that they voted for Bush twice but would vote for Obama. I don’t hear any of that anymore.

I don’t know how old your friends are, but am reminded of the old saw “If you aren’t a liberal when your 20, you have no heart - but if you’re not a conservative by the time you’re 40, you have no brain! (And I’d put conservatives hearts right up there with anyone).

The difference is, conservatives really truly want your friends to succeed. We know this is the path to prosperity whereas liberals just view successful business people as greedy and unfair.

Suggestion: Have your friends watch this video. It will confirm they are on the right track. And congratulate them from all of us!

Cool, and keep your cool.

Do like Rush does and let them come to your view on their own, don’t smother them, don’t trigger a defensive reaction from them.

In a perfect world, you are so cool, that in time, they start arguing your view back at you, as though you are the one who needs to see the light, to be made more pure.

That is heavenly when that happens.

My hubby and I have a tradition that when ever a good thing happens to us, we go out and buy a pie to celebrate.

So... Tuesday afternoon we’re going to buy a chocolate cream pie and a bottle of champagne.

I’ve been posting a lot of Benghazi stories on FB and asking my veteran friends (lots of who are liberals) how they would feel about their CINC if he left them to die in a foreign country. And if my civilian friends would want this kind of guy running the country.

I actually like 80-90% of Ron Paul's platform; it's the other 10-20% that's really problematic.

But you're probably sane. My brother said he would like to see Moochelle Obama run in 2016. Yeah, he's that kooky.

I’m glad for you and your friends.

I do not know one single Democrat that is going to vote for Romney. I’m sick of even talking to them, the stupid things they say are pushing me beyond my ability to be civil.

My BIL’s Jewish wife is beyond redemption (politically). I believe I now understand how so many people welcomed Hitler to power. Not why, but I now see how it happened..

If 45% of the people in this country firmly believe that we need a despot and not a functioning Republic, then what hope do we really have in the longer term? I’m frustrated and depressed because I think that even if we win, we still lose. I will never quit, I will fight to the bitter end. But the Huns are at the gates and we seem to be able to only fight delaying actions.

That’s very encouraging!! Romney is going to win this thing & I’ll tell you why..I look back on my numerous sales trainings & think of this race as a numbers game..think about it, how many Romney/McCain voters will be switching to Obama this late in the game? My guess is the opposite..& if Independents are clearly polling towards Romney, then it’s over! Don’t mean to sound too optimistic but Romney clearly has the winds blowing in his direction. Just my own thoughts/analysis :)

Excellent! Look like they saw reality for what it is and figured things out on their own. That’s the only way the libs will see the truth, unfortunately, there are many who cannot for whatever reason(s) cannot see the truth.

Just a thought. If we give up on those that are 'right' of center, who will a right of center majority come about? Of course, how does the Country overcome what is going on in CA KA, IL, NY, MA?

“...how does the Country overcome what is going on in CA KA, IL, NY, MA?”

You’re about to witness that on Tues. The good thing about the zombie recipients of liberal benevolence is that they don’t care where the money’s coming from. If they have jobs instead of welfare they don’t care. There’ll be jobs.

Another thing these polls did not take into consideration are all the moderate Dems who are abandoning Obama. It will be a landslide.

Tea Partier reporting in...
18 eligible voters have/will be voting in this election that didn't vote “right” in 2010, 2008, 2006, or 2004.

98/02 % split will vote anti-socialist, NO on judicial retentions, and most will vote No on the pure BS State Constitional ammendements.

No marketing money needed to influence them.
Just us people, talking amongst ourselves, about our “leaders”.

My very Lib sister in New Mexico finally threw in the towel, and early voted for Gary Johnson. Couldn’t get her to go for Romney, but at least she didn’t vote for her former messiah.
