My chat with an OBAMA SUPPORTERSubmitted by ThisIsForFreedom on Fri, 03/23/2012 - 19:57
Today, a friend of mine posted an image on facebook of his voter card and said "obama 4 more years"... I commented saying that I was embarrassed to know someone voting for obama.
After about 15 comments on varying issues, we decided facebook wasn't the best platform to have this discussion because neither of us wanted each other to a) be offended, and b) feel resentment.
We spoke on the phone for nearly two hours - we spoke about obama policies and comparison to paul and others, spoke about foreign intervention, the legality of iraq, 9/11 truth, federal reserve, and military industrial complex.
We have so much in common and what the issue became was that he has a government job in virginia and his company has received benefit from an appointed official by Obama, the company he says has seen the greatest growth in its history.
Obama voters are aware, but like millions of people they are voting with their guts for temporary relief.
We can educate them, we can conform them, and my friend even said if Paul wins the nomination, he would re-consider his vote.
