Speaking of a powerful argument for persuasion...
Unfortunately what most are missing is that the “persuasion” will come in the form of a disasterous economic decline and Lord knows what else.
If Obama I wasn’t Carter I, then Obama II will be worse than Carter I. There’s no way we are pulling out of this one, so the rest of them will just have to be “persuaded” the hard way.
Here is what you DO NOT do....
1) Run a rich RINO Republican 65 years old.
2) Run a guy who will not fight for the chance to win.

I love the Tea Party—I was at the very first in Georgia, in the rain at the Atlanta steps in February, 2009. I also protested at the CNN Headquarters in 2010.
BUT, if the Tea Party goes the way of the RINOs in thinking they have to appeal to ALL citizens (welfare whores, EBT moochers, Holder’s people ABOVE the law, baby killers, global-warming idiots, Agenda 21 supporters and countless other zombies) through “persuasion”, they may die an early death.
If the Tea Party can’t put resources into fighting the last election’s voter fraud or attacking the media in some meaningful way, IOW—in a BOMBASTIC, not so “nice” way, we aren’t going to “persuade” the locusts that think only of their own comfort and bennies.
It’s going to have to be the hard way. I’ve had countless “discussions” with the dumb voter population, and there is no persuasion, they’ve swallowed the narrative hook, line & sinker.
We just have to brace for the worst and hope they learn a lesson.
I listened to a couple of people at work yesterday discussing why a particular tax initiative failed. They had no problem with taxing the Hell out of some segment of the population to which they did not belong. Their problem was that the proceeds were not targeted to things that they thought they would benefit from.
People who think that the purpose of government is to give people stuff cannot have their minds changed, because they have no minds.
In a word: No!! In a few words; 'NO F'ing way!!'
