re: #2 Skip Intro

Will you tell your children that a liberal government will increasingly marginalize, dismiss and weaken the support for and the safety of the Jewish state?

There are many who are not right wingers from the get go who were tricked by the right wing fear propaganda after 9/11 and bought into the fear that the left will destroy Israel - again the right wing took the old Cold War era fear of the left destroying America and transferred it over to fear that the left via some Muslim alliance is plotting to destroy Israel even though the relationship between the 2 countries is as close as any non NATO country (shared values, culture, ethnic and religious ties). But anyway, once the right gets you on the war and the existential fear mongering then you they seem to get you on their other agenda and you slowly morph into an all around right winger as you listen to FOX and right wing radio.

I saw it happen to old people that started off lefty and turned righty. My old man and I started off life fighting over politics - he was a Democrat and I a Republican leaner - and he retired and suddenly as I shifted left he is now a FOX news cult member and right wing radio addict. WTF, dad?

Anyone Remember the Alan Burke show ? Where the Liberals would come to get squashed by the intellectual looking and talking Burke .....the Audience cheered , anyone who criticized the Administration or the Vietnam War . was solidly talked over and put down by the magnificent Patriot Burke ...to the cheers of the audience .
Fast forward to 1980 ,[ I moved to Fla in the 70's] and one day rolling through the AM stations trying to pick up a Yankee Game and I heard a familiar voice ...it was Alan Burke ..but now on the Left pounding the Right leaners ,with the same vigor and method , but now he not only talked over them but hung-up on them , and to the approval of callers in .
I wondered if Joe Pine , had he lived long enough , would have switched too . But then there was Dick Cavet , who never changed to this day . Me and the ole' man , we never talked politics .I always knew where he stood though, and he , me . Neither of us changed .

Meh, artistic folks have an opinion, everybody has an opinion. I only resent having to share someone's paranoia.
