If you don’t know I’m not orthodox (though I have a deep respect for them and keep a moderate semi Kosher). My family no longer black sheeps me. When I mention objective points about how Obama has failed their retort is slow and full of pauses. They still want Obama to win, but they have a hard time making their own arguments. My family has gone from complete censorship and fear of what I may say to a point where they are listening. I’d say this is a healthy place to be and if I am given reasonable arguments and not GOP choir talking points then I may have a very good chance of getting them to vote for a Republican. They won’t ever be Pro Life, and they won’t amend their stance on abortion… but they listen to me about issues that deal with government being too big. When I mentioned that is is illegal to take pictures of the police in the state of Massachusetts they asked my why I wanted to take pictures of the police and then change the subject. This tells me that they know that the Blue State juxtaposition of righteousness is weak. When I say I would save Social Security by taking money from the schools they were not hostile to the idea like they were four years ago.
