My (NeoCon) Parents Just Donated to the Ron Paul CampaignSubmitted by JMB987 on Mon, 02/20/2012 - 21:56
Maybe the RP message is hitting a tipping point, maybe it was the many months of discussing, debating, and convincing my parents that Ron Paul is the only sane candidate running for president. I'm not sure what the exact reason, but today my dad told me he donated to the Ron Paul campaign.
I was shocked, happy, and in somewhat disbelief when he told me that. Why? My parents are practicing Jews, are avid fox news watchers, strong Israel supporters, and attend many lectures about the Iran/Israel situation. If people like my parents can accept and embrace Ron Paul, there is lots of hope for other NeoCons out there who have way less allegiance to Israel. Do not give up hope on NeoCons. Talk to them, explain to them RP's foreign policy, be kind, LISTEN to what they have to say, and address their concerns. Some won't listen, but some will! Focus on the people that will listen, and good things will come
My parents are still not completely sold on RP's foreign policy, but they recognize that he's the only one who can turn this nation around. I think we are on the verge of something great here in 2012. Do not lose hope!
