Ok. Yep, these types have acted like idiots.

However, if we're serious about turning things around, these people are opportunities.

This person could vote more conservative next time.

Isn't that our goal? Shouldn't we be pleased that they've seen the light?

What can we do to further enlighten them?

He’s moving to NEW YORK. He’s a lost cause.

"Shouldn't we be pleased that they've seen the light?"

You're missing out on an important fact: they never DO see the light. These people practice tribalism in politics. They are unable to EVER see past step one in any process. They refuse to acknowledge consequence. Even if they are aware of the negative consequences, they choose to ignore it for "a greater good". They truly are the lessors on the intelligence scale because they think with their hormones instead of their brains.

For instance: Gun Control to them = less guns = safer society so... the answer is: outlaw guns. That's it. There is nothing else to say, it's emotional to them and they can't reason with consequences.

Another example: We feel sorry for GroupX because their quality of life suffers for ReasonZ. We need money and there is only one place to get it: tax the wealthy. They can't comprehend the idea that conservatives "have no heart" when they refuse to hand over the cash. Again, it's emotional to them, they equate that refusal to hand over your cash to you being stingy bastard. They don't see past phase one of their plan.

I often compare them to the SouthPark underwear gnomes. If you haven't seen that episode, search it out and watch it... the relationship will become crystal clear.

These people cannot be turned, they are zombies for all intents and purposes. If they don't make the transition in their early 30's like most people who grow up and see reality, they never will.

“Shouldn't we be pleased that they've seen the light?”

The problem is that he has not seen anything. He is still carrying 99% of his leftist baggage. Maybe if he goes to NY and gets mugged, and then to MA and gets mugged, and then to NJ and gets mugged, and then to IL and gets mugged, he might start coming around. The only thing that I am pleased about is that he is not coming to NC.

Don’t delude yourself. He is a lost cause because he will vote social issues everytime at least for the forseeable future.

It is like converting someone to a religion.

Yes, it is possible, but for a true follower like this guy (voted for Obama twice) he has invested a lot into that ideology. You can change him, but be aware that people like this will defend the ideology while being killed by it.
