What to say to a Republican

Do not argue. Arguing does not work, no matter how civil and calm you are.

Do not accuse them of being:

In a cult.

No matter how much truth there may or may not be in these appellations.

Try not to hate.


Love, and give a little advice.


Though you have, alas, sold your soul, fear not. It is yours to take back at any time because, after all, you were given nothing for it.

Oh, I think it has value. More than we dream.


  1. "Where's your clan robes, honey? Did you forget them at home again? Oh good lord, i almost didn't recognize you."

    1. Sure, I like its sly and charming tone, but this one only works until they no longer consider that an insult, a couple more years at this pace.


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
