How can it be done? My generation in enamored by the Democrats, mainly because they all hate Bush.
Seriously, no one will even pick up the conservative paper on my campus, even though it is HARDLY a radical Bush loving journal. In fact, I'd say the Progressive (the left wing paper) is FAR more divided and often, just plain retarded. They recently ran an article about how meat is killing America. In a political newspaper. I can't make this shit up.
I've considered writing for the Review (right wing paper) but I feel that no one will bother reading it. Hell, the Review almost got its named changed and funding cut because it used the words "ethnic ghettos" to describe a few of the program houses (Latino living center, African living center etc).
I think the first thing that has to go is the view that right wing is synonymous with racism and bigotry. It's hard though, to explain that to people who are so conditioned to think that if you don't want to give the poor free money, you MUST hate black people.
It's driving me mad! I can't talk to people without them assuming I'm some kind of bigoted, homophobic, poor hating, woman-hating jack ass.
Anyone have any ideas?
