Here's a couple of helpful hints if you want any chance at communicating with people: 1) Don't insult them. 2) Don't use profanity. 3) Remember communication is a two way street. Don't bombard them with a bunch of facts. Listen to their point of view too. 4) Don't make a generalization about them or assume that you know how they think or feel because they are a member of a particular group or party. We are all individuals. Ask them how they feel. Listen to their answer. 5) Appeal to them on a human level. Listen with your heart and try to understand where they are coming from. 6) Remember, they may be scared too. It is more powerful to care about them as an individual, than it is to be right.
Basically, treat them as you would like to be treated . If nothing else, you may end up with a friend.
