I voted no because if a person is Republican they are more likely not to be educated and have prejudice against minorities like Blacks\ Latinos & Gays. That would never work in my family. Also Republicans tend to be selfish & uninterested in community good [anti-social & narrow-minded]. Among young people being called a Republican is considered just about the worst thing you can call a person [very uncool].

???? A conservative Democrat not leaning liberal?

What if he was prochoice or pro gay marriage? But also a Christian.

I agree ... My priority is whether my mate shares my Christian faith. If so, then the important issues will line up from that worldview.

Many consider it impossible to be a Christian and Republican at the same time!

Blood is thicker than politics ... Most of my family are Democrats who voted for Obama whereas I voted for McCain. Does not impact my relationship with my family one bit and it should stay that way.

Whatever my tactics, my sister os now awake to the diseaster hussein obama is. Funny thing is she cannot expose that fatc to her liberal friends for fear she will lose them all. Hahaha
Third graders would resort to name calling and taunts such as hussein obama ...
