Dear Anonymous Republican Guy,
Look, of course I think you're wrong, just like you think that I'm wrong (I'm not, by the way, you are). Please do not talk to me like I am stupid. Do not assume that I'm not educated on the issues. I am. I have major problems with being talked down to for any reason and especially for the way I choose to vote. It's my right, it's your right--back off. It's not going to matter how many times you try to tell me that poor people are only poor because they choose to be poor, or that it's not our business that thousands of people are losing their jobs because companies decide to go "overseas", or we shouldn't have to give health care to people that can't afford it because they probably aren't working or even trying to get a job--I don't agree with you. I will never agree with you.
You think all poor people are poor because they are too lazy to get a job and why should you pay taxes to help those "lazy poor people". Are you kidding me?! I'm sorry, but that is atrocious. You said I need to get off the socialist bandwagon and research the issues. Please don't assume to know anything about me, especially my personal and/or political views. I'm not a fan of being spoken to like I must not know as much as you do. Oh, I know dude, I just think you're mistaken. I'm sorry if you think I'm smug. I think you're condescending and closed-minded. So, I guess we can just agree to disagree.
