However, your response is prototypical of the kind of ineffective way that conservatives argue with liberals. You need to make an argument that first of all appeals to liberal’s feelings and emotions using rhetoric then once they’ve been won over somewhat start giving them facts, data and history lessons. It’s tantamount to hitting on a 22 year old girl wearing heel and skirt in a nightclub at 2AM, if you lead with a bunch of information you’re not going to get far…
See this video by Stefan Molyneux — it’s long but worth watching — he explains thoroughly why and how to lead with the emotionally compelling Against Me argument.
I have this theory that liberal’s emotional irrationality when it comes to complex topics is due to hormonal imbalance; namely heightened estrogen and low testerostone from GMO foods and toxic environment. The most extreme liberals are clearly people who’s hormones are out of whack… I’’ve yet to devise and experiment which would test this though.
