When Barack Obama was elected I slowly began to send my friends and family links to articles that I was sure they were not getting in their regular media. Mostly stuff that you see linked to from the Drudge Report or Breitbart or in some cases stuff I found on FreeRepublic. Well my family isn't a real open group. My father is totally with me and believes what I believe but my three sisters are pretty liberal. One married a Muslim guy from Africa and they have two kids. She met him in the PeaceCorps. So lots of the daily topics in the news the last two years have been about the Saul Alinsky take over of the Democratic Party. The nefarious real views of the socialist. You know the drill. So I email these to my who email list. I get responces from some folks. Most just ignore it. Which is cool because I figure maybe a slow leaking in process is going on. However I have gotten the strongest responces from my sisters. Two have asked for me to stop emailing things to them. I have asked them to email me anything they want and I would read it. I have asked for a discussion but they won't even defend their beliefs or try to show me where I am going wrong. I think this is a cop out. I think with the major issues at war in America today that we don't have the luxury of blowing each other off. Any how if you can't discuss stuff with family and friends who can you talk with? What would you do. Stop sending them articles and give up on trying to start a dialogue? They are all three college graduates and pretty darn smart. Maybe that is where it went wrong for them? They have been propagandized in school and are now immune to logic?
