Im sorry you got that sort of reaction. We really dont do things like that, but I know a lot are pretty rabid concerning "their guy" on both sides of
the aisle. Im proud of you that you cared enough to vote.. so many dont.
To participate in the process isnt a negative thing IMO. Over your
lifetime you change your views, see more of the world and the truths in it.. your opinions grow as you do. Dont let the negativity keep you from doing
things YOU feel some conviction to do.
I personally dont really understand the fighting I see here and in RL.. its appalling and disgusting to me. SO hateful and nasty. Then again,
culturally, my folks arent into oppression and group think anyway! SO Check this out :
Me? Im a libertarian.. as close as I can get anyway, I was a republican in college.. a Young Republican at that. The party changes, I changed with
it.. as in I left it. I also believe in God.
Husband? He is a republican. He cant stand ROmney and preferred Ron Paul, but a republican. He is an atheist!
My oldest daughter? Obama.. loves the guy. Lives with a libertarian and a republican, but I have encouraged the kids to make their own choices and
given them TRUE "fair and balanced" onfo to base decisions on.
My mom?? hardcore rez living republican and one of the more active members in the Native Americans Against Obama movement. Long story as to why the
rez doesnt like Obama.. maybe another time.
My dad? When he was alive, he was a hardcore BIA hating Tribalist. Similar to what youd call a collectivist or some would call a socialist.
Maternal grandparents.. democrats, but back then the democrats were a LOT different than they are now!
Paternal grandparents? Tribalists. I guess theyd be labeled domestic terrorists these days.
I have 2 other kids.. a 13 yr old and a 6 yr old.
My 13 yr old is a miser..as in a penny pinching capitalist,.. already. Republican leaning with a lot of social lliberalism, Id almost say she leans
toward NeoCon if it werent for her socially liberal tendencies.
Maybe she will be a Monarchist. LMAO!!
6 yr old? She just likes Halo and doesnt care who wins, she wants to go to the carnival.
fighting with family and friends.. or ANYONE for that matter over these jokers is insanity. It IS possible to have civil and wonderful conversations
with parents, children, spouse and friends without such a ruckus.
