After reading a story from a gun toting, God loving, red-blooded American friend about eating out and having a conversation with the waiter about politics, I am convinced that those of us on the right are overlooking the biggest demographic out there: morons. Forget women, Hispanics, blacks, Catholics, college students and every other demographic category. The group that outnumbers them all by the millions is the moron demographic.
Moron: mo’ron n. An adult with the mental capacity of a child. [G. moros, foolish]
Could anything be a more fitting description of someone professing to vote for Obama and then, when pushed for a reason, having no explanation or basis for their logic or motive? Could any label be more appropriate than this for people who base their decision-making off of feelings derived from watching late-night comedians? They can list the cast of Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, or Jersey Shore, but couldn’t name the vice president of the United States. It’s Joe Biden at least for another few months. If you didn’t know that you might be a moron, here’s your sign.
My friend’s conversation with her waiter went something like this, “Are you a shooter?”
Waiter, “No, but my brother and my dad are big into hunting.”
Friend, “Just out of curiosity, do you know who you are going to vote for?”
Waiter, “Obama, same for my brother and dad.”
Waiter, “I dunno,” shrugging his shoulders.
Moron: An adult with the mental capacity of a child.
This demographic is not the same as the hard Left Liberals who know what Obama stands for and agree with what he is trying to do to this country. They know what they are voting for. The moron demographic has no idea why they would vote for him nor can they give one valid reason supported by fact, but back him anyway.
A book could be written about how America got to this point, but that doesn’t change the fact that we are here. We need to sway these morons or at least five to ten percent of them and we need to do it in the next two weeks.
The key is not to try and educate them out of moron status but rather focus on one or two main points. After all, they do have the mental capacity of a child. Think of talking to an eight year old when you engage them. The Left does this so well and the Right misses every time. Free gas, housing, and cell phones anyone?
My friend’s comeback was perfect. The truth is that she wanted to stick a fork in the guy’s eye because of his stupidity. We need to follow her lead and realize that we are dealing with morons and keep it simple and to the point.
Friend, “Do your dad and your brothers realize that President Obama would take their guns away and has said that he doesn’t think people should be allowed to own guns? Unless they want to hunt with sling shots, they should reconsider who they are voting for. I know you are busy working and I don’t want to keep you from your job. Here are three business cards for you, your dad, and your brother. I would love the opportunity to explain to them in more detail what this president plans to do if he gets the chance.”
It helped that my friend is owner/operator of a shooting instruction school giving her arguments validity on the subject.
We can wring our hands and lament about how we got to this point of living in a country where its mere survival hinges on the votes of morons but that will get us nowhere. What we need to do is take my friend’s lead and convince as many morons as possible not that they are morons, but why they should vote differently than they intend to.
Just remember the definition of moron and you’re on your way. Don’t get into deep discussions or try to use complicated arguments. It only confuses them. Use language and ideas as you would with an eight year old and you’re all set.
Now get out there and find some morons. The country is depending on you.
