>> You cannot change a conservative's mind. <<

Yeah, because the other side is so much more receptive to opposing viewpoints and willing to change their beliefs accordingly.

Change "conservative" to "ideologue" or "partisan" and I'd agree with you. But by singling out one side, your colors are showing. And yes, the same is true for those who use an equally broad brush with the word "liberal."

You act as if closed-mindedness is a conservative monopoly, and then you say:

>> He doesn't give a rat's a$$ about what is right for this country...same thing goes for McCain, Graham, etc. <<

Yeah, these are the words of the open-minded... sure, they are.
