Has anyone ever changed your mind about a political issue by something they have said?


I have begun to keep quiet during most political discussions. I truly don't think we ever change each other's minds and often friendships are destroyed for no reason. If someone becomes too nasty with homophobic remarks or racial slurs, I say what I think, but otherwise, I believe it's a total waste of time to argue -- for either side. No one has ever changed my mind either.

    Thank you for your answer, and I agree. I'm curious if it's a yes or no, though.

    Thank you. I live in the South and my political leanings are definitely to the left. It seems people with opposite views get very angry even to hear my thoughts. Sounds like you have more reasonable friends! Thanks again.

    I truly appreciate your answer, very state, especially the last paragraph. I honestly don't know how I came to believe most of what I believe. Thanks!
