It's the dollar. Make the argument about money, and an older man or woman's ability to retire from work one day. Fear is a motivator...and so is pride.
We must celebrate pride in the American Dollar: what a strong dollar means, what the dollar used to mean around the world!
The reality is that the debasement of the dollar is a greater threat to the security of retirees than is any supposed loss of face the U.S.A. would endure by changing its stance on foreign wars.
People don't like having their minds changed for them. They'd much rather figure things out and have new opinions be their own, so be tactful when you point out the other side of the story. But it's really in the best interests of every American that our country be at peace!
War hawks always suggest to people that it's un-American to oppose a war in which we're involved or which we're contemplating, and nobody wants to be thought of as unpatriotic. Well, I think it's unpatriotic to destroy the American dollar, and with it the American way of life.
Make the case for strong American money versus land war in Afghanistan or Iran. Make the case for older Americans being able to retire comfortably on their pensions and savings versus having to pinch quarters, not pennies, because our wars in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East are fought at the cost of the eroding purchasing power of the U.S. dollar.
It's the dollar. People vote with their wallets. And people who've worked many years are very afraid of being poor or broke when they get old. Having lots of value-less dollars is the same as being poor.
