    I pretty much vote the same way as my parents. Dh and I are a bit more conservative, but it typically ends up in the same person. Katelyn hasnít decided yet :)

    My inlaws are most definitely right wing conservatives though.

    Chris and I vote the same way.









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Dh and I have very different political views. He is ultra conservative as were his family. Where as i am not . I always like to make an informed choice between liberal/ Labour.

    We were always taught to vote with th USA's best interest at heart, not the party they are in.

    By parents have voted a straight Republican ticket for as long as I have known what a "ticket" was. They do so based on two issues.

    If my parents saw how I voted in this last election, they would probably ground me.

    My mom is a political junkie in her old age. She lives for Lou Dobbs, Wolf Blitzer et al. She always voted, usually straight democratic party. (I guess it goes back to the old days when Irish need not apply for jobs and they formed unions). My dad was not really political, I guess he voted sometimes..and I would guess democratic. Hid older brother was in the RNC for the area and was extremely connected with the party.

    I guess I have voted democratic most of the time, although I did vote for Reagan once. My DW is a dem too, although her mom was a die hard republican. She went with that ticket this election, cancelling out my vote in the process. I was the only person I know in my bunch of friends that voted for Obama. I got into a lot of heated discussions with them, as they kept starting the fear mongouring and sending false emails of the worst kind to me about Obama being a socialist, marxist, muslim, anti-american, foreign born, dictator, messiah wanabe. With friends like that right---

    My brother runs the polling center at a college in Allentown. He is a political science professor there (oxymoron to me) and he swears that his students don't know his affiliation. I do....die hard D!

    Alysia is taking Government in school. She says her teacher doesn't tell her what his affiliation is and he does a great job of pointing out the good and bad for both parties. i think it takes special skill to be able to do that.
