How do you agree or differ in your political views with your family?
My mother and maternal grandparents were die hard Democrats as I was growing up. My dad has always been an Independent. He truly votes for whoever he thinks will be best.
Sometime in the last 10-15 years my mom has become a Republican. I think that might have to do with that theory that one must be a Republican to be a Christian (which I do NOT agree with). She has been pretty mum about who she is voting for this year.
My sister has always been a Republican. I don't know where that came from.
I am what my father calls "a bleeding heart liberal". Maybe a wounded heart liberal.....I do think some things go too far sometimes :p015: I do try to gauge who I think will do the best job and will be open to voting whatever way that might be. I've yet to find a Republican I like enough to do that though.
Alysia is not old enough to vote. She says she's not sure what she is. I think she is actually pretty moderate minded and can see her being an Independent.
So, how does your family look?
