Hey, i'm 17 and new to the forums.. I won't be able to vote, but i've converted 2 of my teachers and both my parents. Right now i'm trying to get my sister to also vote for him and she's putting up a fight.
Her issue is that he is pro-life, and I told her that he would leave it up to the states to decide that and wouldn't force his opinion onto the country. Her argument was that saying "The states would choose" was his way of getting around it and that if he was for civil liberties he would agree that women have the right to choose what to do with their bodies. She doesn't think that if her state voted to be pro-life and she wanted an abortion, that she would have to move to another state. My argument was wouldn't you rather move to a different state than a different country, where she said some people wouldn't be able to afford to. What do I say to that? I've already explained that he is for small government intervention and less federal interference.
Also, she is pro-gay marriage and I told her that he believed the definition was a man and a women, but that he would leave it up to each state. Again she sees this as a way to jump around the issue and I told her that it would be better because it was up to the people.
She agrees with him on everything like the foreign policy and stuff, but thinks that it would be a scary world because everyone would be left to themselves.. She's also concerned about financial aid to college students being cut, along with other programs in the education area...
Can you clarify this stuff for me so I can get her converted too? I love that she cares so much though and asks questions, she really likes looking into this stuff. Any good rebut would be great!
