If they are determined to vote for Romney who will cut my taxes and ultimately pay for it out of their retirement funds, Social Security and pensions, why in the fluck should I continue to argue with them?

Don't argue with them.
You can inform them, but don't expect much since data and experiments show that even (or more so) educated conservatives only ignore real world data and results and use their "liberal" education to garner better justifications for the irrational stances they take.

Remember you are not dealing with rational thought here; you are dealing with emotive emotional "lizard brain" reactive fear....and thus lies quickly are embedded and rational reasoning is overridden.

Read Lakoff's book Moral Politics to get some insight into this.

The Liberal/Progressive positions and results are far better for us yet they are losing due to our inability to early and often get a message out that stops the fear messages that wealthy media owners command.

Oh, and giving up eventually leads to your demise also unless you are part of the 1% of the 1%.
