I was listening to the radio on the ride home this morning and something popped out at me. Liberals win most discussions before they even begin. They have a serious advantage with most people because of the way they speak. They speak in vague open ended and idealistic terms. Few people will argue with "everyone should have health care" or "hard working people deserve a chance at the American dream (home ownership)". Being able to speak in idealistic terms is a great advantage to them. Even better is that it makes conservatives come off as stumbling and worried about "small things" like how a program will get paid for. Who likes the guy who is always saying NO and generally killing good vibes. It really makes conservatives come out as assholes when they say that matter of factly some people can't afford to own a home (which is true).
Without even talking in substance or having an intelligence debate liberals win. They win by being the cool guy and making us be the stick in the mud.
Just thought that was interesting. Got to eat some fruit loops and get back to work.
