Just had a Bernie supporter come to my door, and ask me to vote for him. I sent her packing. They are all over canvasing the neighborhood.

    You guys haven't purchased your Donald Trump masks?
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    While I will say you should have had fun with her, I'd be hypocritical. Because I would have simply sent her packing. Probably something along the lines of "get off my porch, you commie".
    That's a lie, I'd probably be how I am with anyone that comes to the door.
    Opens door. "We don't want any". Closes door. Never bothering to see what the wanted.

    Oh, I always ask what they want. You never know, maybe you won the sweepstakes. It might be Ed McMahon's replacement. But when they tell me they're selling vacuum cleaners or whatever or campaigning for libtards, or they want to show me the light, Sometimes I have fun before I send em packing. I had some guys on bicycles wearing white shirts and ties with black slacks come by not too long back wanting to show me the proper way to eternity. I said, Sure come on it. Well I'm just enough of a Bible Scholar that I can mess with them. Don't get me wrong, I got a lot of Respect for these people as a group, I just have my own belief on how it all happened. And when somebody comes to my door wanting to tell me how it is, I just don't deal with it real well.

    There's people on here I disagree with, but I don't argue with. IF you believe that God lives on the moon and you go outside on a full moon night and get down on your prayer bones and pray til daylight well good for you, but I probably won't join you. I'll fight and die for your right to do that, but I have my own style thank you.

    Some on here don't believe in the super natural or not as I do or they don't know what to believe (Atheist and Agnostic) and if you're in one of those groups that's your business. The most I may say is Hey if you want to come to church with me, you're most welcome. I'll pick you up at 10:30 Sunday morning so don't be late. However, if you don't want to be involved, more power to you. The way I look at it, nobody or no mortal has lived to tell about it yet.

    But don't come to my door and try to brow beet me to go to your church or vote for John H Libtard, or you're selling trees that grow dollar bills, whatever, because I may slam that door in your face or try messing with your mind. And if you hang about on my property waiting on me to change my mind, I'm calling the cops. Nuff Said!
    Daddy, what's an enabler?
    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.

    That's how I treat it. I wouldn't be mean to them. It's simply a case of them lacking the life interactions to know any better.

    I believe, in most instances, you are correct. When I was in college I had a friend who was a liberal. He was a liberal for what it could get him in his poor college kid lot in life. We would debate often. He once told me he had no doubt he would become a republican once he got a job and started making money. He understood exactly what he was doing, or at least he thought he did.

    Did anybody else notice that none of the "protestors" who broke up the Trump rally in Chicago would consent to a live interview on national TV? The Fox reporters tried to have a conversation with several of them, and every one refused. They either had no idea why they were there, or they didn't want to be recognized by law enforcement. Probably paid goons from BLM, or maybe Move On.

    This could be. It could also be they were told to keep there traps shut. Remember some of the interviews with the Occupy Wall Street crowd. They looked like total idiots. The left is learning. Don't let your supportefs talk to the press.

    They've been indoctrinated their whole lives.. all the way from "Participation Trophies" to full blown brainwashing at institutions of "higher learning."
    They're robots.

    And since they've been taught how to take a test, and have no critical thinking skills, they're too damn dumb to know that everything Bern wants to give them for free, they'll have to pay for when they're getting ready to retire.

    Then they'll be a generation of stupid, broke, morons that STILL can't tell the difference between having their back peed on and rain.
    Never laugh at your wife's choices.
    You are one of them.

    There are a bunch of them exactly as you're describing, but there a others who realize there is no free lunch. My daughter is one who is on the fence. We told both of our kids that if they attend college, it will be on their dime. As she's seeing the numbers on the red side of the ledger grow, Bernie's 'free college' platform really appeals to her right now...but she also knows that free now just means more expensive later.

    The only candidate for her at the moment is Bernie...but she's voting with her wallet, which means that will change in the future.

    "We don't want any!"

    "We already subscribe!"

    "We gave at the office!"

    "We already found Jesus!"

    Pretty much covers it.

    You can always ask her if she'd rather have to pay for just her education, OR her part of the next 300, 3,000, or even 300,000's "free" education

    I recently had a conversation with a young Sanders supporter in which I asked "What makes you think an American version of socialism would be any more successful than German or Russian socialism?" I was met with a blank stare... Many of these young folks don't realize that that "free" education will ultimately come with a price..

    I had that conversation with one of my step-daughters. Here is what I said...

    Free college? The poor already get free college with Pell Grants. When it is free, it loses its value and people take it for granted. For example, a few years back, I tutored for an English 101 class at a local community college as a project for one of my 400 level English classes (that I worked my ass off in to get an A because I paid for it myself). The class started with 31 students. 9 passed the class. 5 passed with an A or a B. The vast majority were getting free federal aid that basically went to waste. It wasted the students' time, it wasted the professor's time and talent, and it wasted the taxpayer's money. And we want more of that?

    She was concerned about the rich paying their fair share. The top 1% already pay almost 40% of the income taxes! The top 10% pay over 70%!!! The bottom 50% pays less than 3%. How the hell is that fair? Even in socialist/communist Cuba, there are elite in that society. There are always have been people that have more than others and there will always be. Since rich people seem to be paying all the bills, why the hell would you want to hold them back? Why kill the goose that lays the golden egg?

    Back to college-- I asked her if everyone had a college degree, what would be so special about a college degree then? There are only so many careers that need a college degree. Is it in society's best interests that every french fry cook, janitor, and cashier be college educated?

    College has become the easy way out for aimless high school grads who are not anxious to get out from under mommie's protection. It gives them an excuse to delay growing up till they are 35-40 years old.

    Even in 1970, when I graduated high school, fathers typically said "go to work" or "go to college. You can stay here, rent-free, but you have to pay your own tuition and buy your own books." This, of course, assumed that you could even pass the entrance exams for even a small local college.

    My dad meant it, so I went from part-time to full time at my job, and moved out. That's when I got my real education. By the time I was 20, I understood the world pretty well, was getting tired of partying, and set about becoming a self-sufficient person.
