Could we agree that people can hold different opinions without being asleep, undeveloped, brainwashed, scared, or the like?
"Wake up people!" and such is a terribly meaningless and ineffective way of supporting a point of view.
The grow up part could be difficult for some not all.
Wake up...no political chit chat until after your fourth cup of coffee
Think for yourself: research, research, research.
Gosh, might be a hard road to go down...
"Grow up!" = Act just as immature as I am.
"Wake up!" = I refuse to consider the possibility that I may be just as trapped in some dreamland.
"You're brainwashed/irrational." = And I refuse to consider any proof to the contrary!
"You're scared." = I consider your opinion a threat.
"Think for yourself." = Agree with me!
Take it to them Val!
Why only 20% of Americans want to admit they are Republicans?
Refer to Valerie F Comments above.
You drank the koolaid! = You think differently than I do and you are an idiot
I forgot to include "get an education!" and "open your eyes!"
"Open your eyes" = I'm in the dark.
"Get an education" = My arrogance makes my ignorance better than yours.
Guess it is proven in all the comments how this works...
One can never change a person let alone their point of view..only when they are willing to do so. That is okay..sometimes it comes down to "I told you so.."
There is a Roman Maxim in Law which says...
"Let he who be deceived..be deceived..!!

President Obama made the statement last week at a fund-raiser that "facts and science and argument do not seem to be winning because we're hard-wired not to always think clearly when we're scared."Now is it just me or is calling the American voters stupid (don't always think clearly)...

I always wondered why those little words effected people so much, so i ask my fellow hubbers out there to tell me and try to answer the question, "why is saying i love you so hard?"

I've often said, the issue of being afraid to come out of the closet, is because you don't want to lose a loved one, a family member who might stop loving you because you are gay. I've also said, WHO CARES! Happiness is what you need in life. This thought of family, family, family... is just so...
