tough question and not new to american politics at all

Our forefathers had great disagreements over what role the federal govt should play and 225 years later ,we still are having the same debate.

This is what I know. Its nearly impossible to change a person's belief in almost anything, including politics. Beliefs can not be reasoned with, no facts can change it, no amount of arguing can overcome it. For starters we must accept that there are minds which rarely be changed and not waste alot of time with those who have no ability to question their own beliefs.

Now, there are some that have some skepticism concerning their beliefs, perhaps just enough that they can be turned...those are the ones to have the discussions with.

its not really stupid but ignorance and if its not ignorance

its prejudice and bigoted supporters..........I have many conservative friends and they simply chose to ignore the data because it goes against their beliefs...

thats a hard nut to crack and in most case, nearly impossible. We must understand that most of these type of people will NEVER be swayed. The sooner you realize the sooner you can quit wasting your time in reasoning and move on to next one in hopes they possess an ounce of skepticism in their own beliefs....
