I&rsquo;d like to win the argument with the few liberals I know, but how should I do it? &mdash; Tijuana Joe<br />\n Dear Tijuana:<br />\n I hesitate to offer my advice because you will never win an argument with liberals; they&rsquo;ll just call you a racist and find a rally to attend. But if you genuinely want to ruin their day, try this tactic.<br />\n First, shock them by sincerely agreeing that it is true that no mainstream Democrat has come out publicly and said the party wants open borders. Then while they are blinded by the stun grenade you just launched, politely ask these questions.<br />\n Do Democrats support a wall on the southern border?<br />\n Do Democrats want the catch and release policy of illegal immigrants to continue?<br />\n Do Democrats want &ldquo;Dreamers&rdquo; to easily become U.S. citizens?<br />\n Do Democrats have any problems with chain migration and the VISA lottery system?<br />\n Should people who cross the border illegally be processed like criminals? &nbsp;<br />\n Do mainstream Democrats like Kamala Harris and Kirsten Gillibrand want to see the abolishment of ICE?<br />\n Then follow up with this question that will make them spew their latte. By your own answers, wouldn&rsquo;t you be describing a country that has open borders? Boom, your liberal acquaintances won&rsquo;t admit you&rsquo;re right, but you will have the satisfaction of knowing you sent them grabbing their funny pink hats and crawling into their safe space to have a good cry</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:<br />\n The rhetoric and actions in politics these days is disgusting. The incident of the Virginia restaurant asking Sarah Sanders and her dining party to leave sums up the divisive tone of leftist politics today. Now Maxine Waters is calling for more harassment of Trump administration members and staff and she is supposed to be one of the leaders of the Democrat party. I can understand political disagreements and I can even understand if someone doesn&rsquo;t like President Trump personally, but calling for something that could potentially lead to physical violence, i.e. the shooting of the Republican baseball team, is dangerous and completely wrong. What&rsquo;s going on with the Democrats? &mdash;&nbsp;Decent Debbie in Dallas<br />\n Dear Debbie:<br />\n A few years ago, I wrote off some of the bizarre anti-conservative rantings and verbal attacks of a few unhinged celebrities and obscure individuals as the Democrat fringe, but today the &ldquo;Occupy Wall Street&rdquo; mentality has reached the upper echelon of the Democrat party along with other areas such as universities and the mainstream media.<br />\n Dealing with the Democrats&rsquo; unhinged mentality reminds me of the Jonathan Swift quote, &ldquo;Reasoning will never make a man correct an ill opinion, by which reasoning he never acquired.&rdquo; Democrats have never relied on reason to win political debates but rely on purely emotional arguments which has spawned the immature actions of today.<br />\n With every Democrat proposition losing in the arena of ideas, the party of Nancy, Chuckie and a new generation of socialists finds itself with its back smashed firmly against the wall, leaving them to lash out like third graders. The news that Justice Kennedy is retiring from the Supreme Court will make these immature playground bullies even more desperate.<br />\n Sadly, with the help of the sympathetic media, any person who even hints at being a conservative is treated not merely as a political pariah but a societal pariah that should be banished altogether from humanity. Today&rsquo;s liberals don&rsquo;t want to know Trump supporters as individuals much less give them a political voice. It&rsquo;s easier for liberals to label the opposition as a bunch of racist Nazis, so they can belch out their hate and intolerance guilt free.<br />\n For Father&rsquo;s Day my wife gave me Newt Gingrich&rsquo;s new book &ldquo;Trump&rsquo;s America&rdquo; and because of the potential for liberal insanity resulting in violent acts, I&rsquo;m afraid to leave it on the seat of my car or read it at a Starbucks. Not to mention wearing a MAGA cap or placing a Trump sign in our yard.<br />\n Did conservatives do this under Barack Obama or Bill Clinton? No, conservatives licked their wounds and proceeded to work hard to expedite change through the electoral process.</p>\n<p> E-mail your questions to <a href=\"mailto:marklevy92@aol.com\">marklevy92@aol.com</a>.
