21. We should not have to. Here's why:
Edited on Tue Nov-09-04 06:56 PM by Anakin Skywalker
You posed an excellent question, my friend! These intolerant bigots will only have further contempt for you if you reach out to them because in their egomaniacal minds, your compromise is seen as a submission that they have been correct all along and that you have "seen the light".

It is extremely difficult to have any kind of dialogue with people who refuse to think or consider scientific evidence, hard data, etc. It is my opinion that most Shrub voters picked him because of his successful manipulation of their emotions (an example: his faith-based crappola). Their world is one of b & w and they are the ones who refuse to compromise. Just look for instance the way they go after the GLBT community. This is a community that not only is not a threat to them, but is actually economically beneficial! But did these red state rednecks bother looking at the statistics and numbers? Hell no! They hate GLBT all because their religion tells them to. How do you reach out to such mindlessness?

For the liberals out there who are patient enough to "debate" with or "reach out" (or whatever you want to call it) to these simpletons, good luck to you! I have wasted enough time talking to them in the past and will not be doing it now.
