They Just Don't Care!Submitted by JBing on Tue, 07/01/2008 - 14:12
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.
