SO….do you have ‘ammunition’ when liberals, uninformed family members or friends, insist on spewing the liberal yarns? Do you get upset and ARGUE when they start their stories they’ve heard on CNN or MSNBC or do you have the words with which to explain your stances?
We Conservatives have the rougher road because, as much as we are feeling people, we don’t run our politics strictly on feelings or we’d lose our country, of course. So, when faced with liberals who value feelings over facts, we can get upset! What we need to do is speak calmly and brilliantly, right?
Are you good at this? Do you have the facts all ready to go so you don’t fumble with emotion and get mad first?
On this last Sunday’s “Faith Blog” here at Geeez, someone posted the Rubio video where he talks about his faith quite calmly and openly, not allowing a badgerer to get on his nerves or take from his viewpoint. Baysider beautifully commented with “And wonderful video on Rubio. I’ve internalized the answers and need to memorize the words!”
It would help to memorize words here and there…we have internalized the answers because we are up on the ‘stuff’ and it’s part of us (why we’re against Obamacare ..hint; not because we hate the sick, right? why we know the minimum wage can’t go to $15 without losing millions of jobs, not because we hate the poor, right? etc etc… Don’t let the libs beat you down)
How do you do when faced with a situation with liberals? If anything, let this be a reminder; we will need the facts and figures and to STAY CALM this year before the election, right? Have your ammunition at hand!
