I have just read about an experience of another blogger here at WordPress.  Their post was about the reaction of an individual who took issue with the banner the blogger had hung from the front of his home with a message encouraging voters to “Vote yes on proposition 8”.  Proposition 8 is an initiative measure on the 2008 California General Election ballot titled Eliminates Right of Same-Sex Couples to Marry. If passed, the proposition would “change the California Constitution to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry in California.”

His experience was the same as mine whenever I have engaged in “discussion” with liberal “thinkers”.

In my case the topic was about national and foreign policies. While I had given facts, figures, documented quotes, studies, charts, graphs, etc. etc. I was always met with tirade, rant, yelling, name calling, hateful remarks and also being accused of being narrow minded. Clearly they were shooting the messenger.

In the end I am always left with the thought that I am arguing with an emotional 4 year old throwing a tantrum in the middle of the grocery store. You can’t win with emotionally charged and intellectually lazy individuals who go out of their way to tear down traditional institutions. When confronted with facts they can’t repute they unleash their emotions and launch into personal attacks. Your case is no different.

In my final analysis I blame the lazy voters who stays home the first Tues. in November. We get what we deserve.

The way our country is evolving, in a few more decades Islam will be well established and their leadership will deal with the types who visited your neighborhood.

In the meantime, brace yourself. If Obama gets in office, nothing is sacred.
