They Just Don't Care!

Today I was "trying" to talk to a relative of mine. They are a lifelong republican and were supporting Huckabee before he dropped, they have 3 kids, a wife, a pretty decent career. In the past I have tried to educate him on Ron Paul, to no avail! I was talking about the dollar dropping, they replied "well, then ya just have to get out and earn MORE dollars, ha ha, that's what I do" then I mentioned the war costing us and how it will cost future generations, kids, grandkids, etc., his reply, "so, we all paid for ww2 and past generations paid for ww1, that's just how it goes...blah blah blah" (It was hard for me to keep listening) When I talked about Iran, there was indifference, when I said how we are pouring money into Iraq and there will be future generations of Iraqis who hate us because we killed their parents, relatives, sisters, etc., I was met with "(laugh) Oh, like the Japanese and Germans hate us, (laugh, shrug)" then, "frankly I could care less how they feel about us." Then we were interupted by another relative saying, "oh, let's not talk about all this stuff, it isn't that important, blah, blah, blah"

My point in relaying all of this is, he is a very typical republican/citizen, they just do not care and there is very little to make them care, as long as they have money coming in and their family feels secure.

Congratulations on being a 2%er.

Keep being persistent. If you care about your family. However if it's a windbag uncle who thinks he knowns how the world is run and set in his ways you can't help him. Talk to the ones that listen.

Well, they'll might have to

Well, they'll might have to in the next few months. I don't think we can turn a blind eye on what the corporatists are doing. If we do, then they might attack us when our guards are down. Give the people that don't believe you the cold shoulder and you stick with your chin and head straight up in at least knowing that you know you're right even if others don't think so.

Sheeple

Unfortunately, 98% of Americans are true sheeple. How do you think we got to this point?

One is the point of view from an Iraqi, and the other an American soldier who supports Ron Paul.

Might Care Soon

The money might not be coming in anymore... at least not like it used to.

Eventually when things get bad, people like your relative will start re-evaluating their positions. Hard core RINO's will be looking for new ideas. They will either turn to the state run media or the freedom movement.

I've had some good responses from some Republicans

I just explain that all the other candidates, no matter which party are CONTROLLED by the banksters and the great evidence I show them is at www.opensecrets.org. Goldman Sachs is right at the top for McCain and Obama. Guess who's at the top for our Dr. Paul? U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force-so I support the troops and vote with who they put their dollars behind. Guess who's behind the armed forces? Google, Intel and Microsoft employess- the smart, technical people.

So if anyone says there's no one of substance that are for Dr. Paul than tell them they are 360 degrees of wrong, the most substantial people in America are standing behind him and his ideas.

Another great site is www.whitehouseforsale.org that shows how big of a whore the candidates are.

Same here..

But at least you can feel good that you
gave them a warning.

Key words.......

"as long as they have money coming in and their family feels secure."

Look at the DOW in the past 3 days... Don't worry, watch how not too far from now, they start rethinking things as they begin feeling it through their temporary MSM given complacency / immunity. Believe me, everyone's gonna feel this when it goes down. You haven't seen anything yet. This is just a taste of the future.

don't give in

I have had similar experiences to varying degrees. It can be frustrating. But the important thing is that you don't give in, that you keep trying to wake people up--even if you have to do it in more subtle ways.

The propaganda matrix that we're up against has many people in a state of mass-hypnosis--and they'd probably tell you that the sky was orange if their "mainstream" masters told them it was true.

Me too

and I considered myself to be "of one mind" with this very close relative. She votes Ron Paul, but don't talk to her about the state of our country and what is happening. I'll bet I would have felt the same way when I was 30ish. Little did I know that I could not afford to put my head in the sand back then, and now it is even more dire. Before, we had some time and hoped (thought) there would be enough honest politicians to handle their job in the best interest of America. It is still unbelievable that near 100% are corrupt. How can that be? Wow.

I hate to say this about your relatives...

but they are like the majority of Americans, they have not figured it out yet, and quite honestly won't until it is too late. I have dealt with the same from my family. My sister, and her husband are both Obama delegates from Nevada. They both liked what Ron Paul was doing in regards to liberty, but said he had no chance to change anything because it wasn't really change that he was going to make, and what Ron Paul was doing was going back to a Constitutional form of government which hasn't existed for a long time, and then they stated we live in different times, and bigger cultural diversity from when this country was formed, so our government has to change with it. My response was our government is way to big, and spends way to much, and that our founding fathers wrote the Constitution because they knew there would come a day that greed, power, and socialism would take hold of this country, but if WE THE PEOPLE, and our elected officials followed our Constitution it could not fully manifest. I decided I would not argue with them or discuss the presidential elections any longer. They are also against gun ownership, and I make sure that they know I am a proud owner, and take the 2nd Amendment very seriously, and I very displeased that they would want to take this right away from me, I also made it very clear that I thought it was very un-American of them to take this right from me.

I can totally understand where they are coming from

can't you? There was a time when I thought no guns was a solution. Then I thought about it. There was a piece of me who wanted to "take care" of everyone. Then I thought about it and changed my mind again. There is a lot of me who knows the world is small now, but I do not want communism to be the governing form of a small world. Just because we live in a "global" world now does not mean we have to give up our sovereignty to the UN to govern the entire world. The UN is more corrupt than the US government, hard to believe, but it is.

Just keep talking to them and asking them questions and be sure to let them know you can understand why they think what they think (media has trained them that way), but what about "this."

It is sad really....

I feel your pain. I think we all have experienced this at one point or another. One thing is for certain though, there nonchalant attitude may very well becoming to an end soon. Just keep preachin!!!!

Same here

2 older sisters. one was Huckabee I think just because she is real religious and somehaw believes we are helping all these countries we fight wars in. She is republican and will probably vote Mccain.My other sister saya she voted for Ron paul in the primary for me.So now I have to promise her I will vote for Mccain. lol Yeah right! Neither of them know the first fact about any thing that is going on or about their candidates and wo'nt believe it even when you show them a video of it coming right out of the horses mouth. (or should I say ass?)
