reaching liberals

What's the best way to reach a liberal?

I think their best quality is they want to improve the well being of other people. But they misunderstand economically how to do that. They need to be taught that reducing crony capitalism, fixing monetary policy and reducing regulations has a better long term effect than robbing from the rich to give to the poor. They think the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. They need to understand that when some of the corruption is removed the rich get richer and the poor get richer. Our country was never perfect, but it worked for a while as we grew our middle class to unprecedented levels.

Simple.

Speak the truth...in love. They can many times be easier to reach than the "Limbaugh neo-cons"!

Conspiracy theories, period.

Conspiracy theories, period. You have to destroy their government-worship.

Are you prepared to "agree to disagree?"

People are always looking for how they disagree, and then they zero in and fight about what they disagree on. Go in prepared to say, "You know, i don't expect to agree on everything, and I doubt we will agree on (whatever topic) but I'd like to ask you about a topic I bet we agree on. How do you feel about....
Try the war, if you have to take a blind guess. But if you take a few minutes to listen first, you will probably see your opening.
And don't have too high of expectations. Even when we meet people we think are "awake" it is never long before they hit some area where we disagree - it is a funny thing about being individuals, we all come with individual opinions.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Great advice.
