dcs, trust me. None of us are interested. My hand is more pleasurable and intelectually stimulating. As for the topic, I wouldn't have a problem with it. I think it would also be ideal for raising children - they get exposure behind the flaws and benefits of both sides. Oddly enough I'm the product of a bipartisan marriage. My dad is very liberal and while my mom is socially liberal she's fiscally conservative and comes from an old money conservative type family. Needless to say Thanksgiving is loads of fun. There's actually a conservative lady in one of my classes I'm building up the courage to talk to.

I chose yes, but its not really that simple. I could date someone who disagreed with me on economic and fiscal policy, but I could never date someone who disagreed with me on social issues. I have too many gay relatives to date a social right winger.

My last ex and I disagreed on economic policy a WHOLE LOT. I wouldn't say it put strain on the relationship. It actually made the relationship more interesting and frisky every 2 years

Oh didn't I tell you! We are talking now and she is totally against hussein obama. Sometimes it takes some harsh actions to get someone to wake up. Actually it took her pocketbook. She knows she will have a lot less in her bank account now that he is the president.

Hussein dcsldcd,

So you base if you want to maintain a relationship with her depending on what she thinks about Obama?

That speaks a lot about your character. SICKENING. I would never stop talking to my sis over politics.

I know what you mean. I would be ok with a fiscal conservative but never a social conservative or a delusional religious nutcase.

I was thinking yes and voted so, and then i reread the question, "complete" was a word that didn't register the first time....
Doubtful, but then again, you never know....but people's brains really are a big part of my personal relationship chemistry regardless of partisanship....but to tell the truth, the ones that I agree with are always hotter, fitter, and more attractive overall to me!

No I base my relationship with her on her support for a man intent on destroying this country where my children need a future. She, like most liberals, are so closed minded they will not even look at or hear anything but the propaganda pumped into their brains from the left. It took her finances to finally want to know what hussein obama was doing to this country.

It was easy. I started with a list of his lies and a list of the kind of people he has put in his administration.

So like I said. You base your relationship with your sister depending on if she supports Obama. Pathetic, hussein dcsldcd. Dont even BEGIN to call liberals so close minded. Have you looked at your posts?

The fact that you will not talk to your sister if she supports Obama? Pathetic. VERY pathetic.

And what did Obama do her "finances"? More lies. Expected.

Wow Hussein actually stopped talking to her sister because they disagreed on a president? That's some Aryan nation type tactics there. I got family and people I love who I disagree with about Obama, doesn't mean I'll try to cut them out of my life. Let alone my own sister! And your sister must have quit her job or have a really high paying one if she lost money. I'm working class and made about $3800 more (after taxes) than I did last year working roughly the same hours. And the lady at the IRS here said I'll be getting a refund check too come May for a few hundred. Please don't try to kill her.

Exactly, Hussein dcsldcd is lying. Expected from the likes of the right though. Did you expect anything better from someone who stops talking to their sister over Obama?

Her sister didnt lose jack. Or anything else. It is just Aryan type notion as you stated.

Why not? I'm pretty much an independent, though my views are I guess left-leaning libertarian. I have some very similar and yet also very different views than my husband, a classical liberal from France (now a US Citizen). I could see myself with someone more fiscally conservative, but not socially consevative. I'm very socially liberal and moderate-to -left fiscally. I couldn't imagine why a religious right type would even want to be with me, either, except to try to save my soul.
