Sat next to a young couple. The girl was an education major still in college, the boy was a recent graduate with a degree in economics.
He was excited when I told him I was an economist, but then depressed when I told him he would not get a job. The girl, somewhat offended I was being truthful and blunt asked what I did for a living. Overhearing that she was an education major, I said,
"I collect welfare and foodstamps for a living. I stopped working two years ago."
I said it with a sincere and direct enough face it convinced her.
She was upset.
"Wait, you don't even try to find work anymore?"
Half-tempted to point out in her declaring an elementary education major that neither was she, I decided not to and instead went with my original plan,
"Yes, not worth working any more. You see how much free shit Obama is giving away? To hell with work. It's for suckers."
She got pissed. ROYALLY pissed. She wouldn't talk to me. You could see it in her face. She was angry that somebody might take advantage of the situation.
And then I realized something - I finally figured out how to convince liberals they're wrong.
It wasn't through charts. It wasn't through logic. It wasn't through reason. And it wasn't through statistics or facts.
It would be by agreeing with them to the full logical conclusion of socialism and acting like you were completely abusing their
So the next time you run into a liberal and they ask you what you do for a living, with a straight face you say,
"Nothing, I collect welfare and food stamps. I live off of the government."
It is thus far and by far the most effective tactic I have ever deployed.
