I think Americans are brainwashed to think that not supporting the Israeli state means that one is anti-semitic. If I say anymore, I may grow angry.

ron paul approving a news letter is nothing.
the majority of these candidates don't even know the content of the commercials they run.
you know, the ones that say "this is mitt romney, and i approve this message."
they just don't have the time to go over every single thing. they have to be on the road, travelling, meeting people, preparing for debates and speeches etc.

HA!! Your family is absolutely charming! I felt like pulling up chair and chiming in.
Your Dad, Howard is great, loved him. I say Howard for President 2012!
Starred & Flagged!
Have fun, I hope they don't flame you lovely family too much!

I don't mean to be insensitive or rude, but this video is clearly an example of how truly clueless the average American voter is. I say this with a heavy heart - When we're dealing with this as an example of the average American voter, Ron Paul has no hope. The Mainstream media has indoctrinated your relatives (and millions of others) to the point they need deprogramming to think for themselves. Just because someone said the newsletter was approved by Paul doesn't necessarily make it true. Good luck trying to sway them, I think you'll need it.

No offense to the OP, but he doesn't put up much of fight to the points of his Uncle and Dad. Just look at the rebuttal to the newsletters point, "But still" The OP concedes the point as if it were true and tried to move on to a new point. Instead that is the time to point out the facts that are known about the newsletters. Look at the discussion of Romney. Uncle Howard claims Romney is a Conservative but then goes on to give example after example of things that prove Romney is not a Conservative. Instead of the OP pointing out this obvious contradiction, he remains silent. Again conceding the point as if it were fact.
For the OP. I think it is great that you have the type of family that would gather around like this and have such a discussion. You call this arguing... I call this a nice conversation. If you would like to see a real family argument, you should come with me to my Mother's home sometime. My family does not discuss a lot, we argue. Although I disagree with your Uncle Howard, he seems like a nice man. That is just the kind of guy you can sit down with, have a cup of coffee and discuss just about anything. I grew up without family and from where I sit, you are truly blessed.
Here's some of the things that were said: -Ron Paul approved the newsletters therefore is anti-semitic and racist -He's against Israel -He's like Hitler -Romney is a conservative
