If there were reasoning involved, he wouldn't be having this problem. Women depend on feelings.

Some women do, but certainly not all of us. In my case, it was my husband who leaned left when we first met. Were it not for his devilish good looks and affinity for fine firearms, I may have passed him by. But after years of patient hard work on my part pointing out the problems of the left, he's an upstanding, right leaning kind of guy. Smile

Similar to my wife. When I met her, she was a liberal vegetarian academic. Now she’s a Rush Limbaugh-listening, meat-eating, Army civilian retiree. She laughs at leftists and votes Republican. It takes time.

Put on Hannity and listen to rush with her in the car. Then send her Louder with Crowder videos on her phone

My wife is not a Trump fan, doesn't vote, and I don't care. It doesn't affect me one bit. She was willing to help fight the D's in VA over 2A though.

I think reason is on our side - I wouldn't get trapped into arguing or debating with a family member, but a soft approach with leading questions could plant seeds.

"I can see the appeal of (candidate X's promise of Y). How do you think they could make that work?", kind of thing. Asking open ended questions and not jumping in yourself to demolish the fantasies. Doing that would trap you and her into the argument, and essentially making her defend the leftists could psychologically affect her attitudes and perceptions, and could lock her in. Having her answer herself makes her take both sides. Wink

There are lots people in the middle who need to be informed about just how bad the Democratic candidates truly are, before making up their minds. The election depends on enough of the folks in the middle weighing the alternatives and deciding that, like the Dame of Benghazi, the alternatives to Donald Trump are not worthy of the Presidency. The true believers (of either side) are not enough to decide the election on their own.

It would be nice if the press did their job, like scouts in the military. Straight-up descriptions of the situation and dispositions. Not going to hold my breath on that.

I might suggest Dennis Prager over Hannity. Just to "break her in". JMHO...

Just tell her you're fine with her cancelling your vote for Trump, as long as she doesn't vote multiple times like all those damn illegal aliens do for Dems

My wife was on the phone with a friend the other night and I heard her say, "I'm thinking Bloomberg is the best choice..."

I woke up at 3:00 the next morning with those words going through my head and could not go back to sleep.... this image kept showing up in my mind:

My parents cancelled each others votes for 50 something years. They never really spoke about politics that I remember when I was growing up. It was only much later as a middle-aged adult that I found out my mom had been voting democrat all those years. I knew my dad was republican, even as a kid.

Just today, I saw my daughter had liked some pro-Warren tweets. College ruined her good sense.

It's a long time until November. No need to confront now. The "problem" may well resolve itself long before then.

My wife was brainwashed by CNN. Their propaganda is effective and nonstop. It’s hate all day all of the time. They convinced her that if she was an enlightened, educated and smart person she would hate all Republicans (especially Trump). She used to be solid Republication but no more. Don’t underestimate the power ofNBC, CNN, MSNBC and just about every newspaper in the country.

Pack up the favorite half of your shit and disappear now. Most marriages last about a decade if lucky, so you've had as good a run as you can expect.

Or don't let it bug you so much.

Curious -

If Raingirl works, what is her profession and what are the political leanings of her peer group in her ‘working’ circles?

If she does not work, what kind of friends does she keep (i.e., do her friends spouses work in education, entertainment, social media, etc.)?

Knowing who may be influencing her political leanings may help you develop a counter-strategy.

My wife voted for Hillary in the last election, I made it my sworn duty to try and get her to see the light. We watched several of the debates and at the end of every one she said "That was a complete shit show". Made me smile

My wife and I watched the debates, strictly for entertainment value. I still felt dirty.




Here's to the sunny slopes of long ago.

No shit, one of the first things I asked my wife when we first met was if she liked Obama or not and when she said “hell no” I knew I met a great girl.
I dated a couple liberal chicks before and they were both selfish ignorant twats that I was lucky to be rid of now that I look back on it.
And I agree politics isn’t everything and honestly shouldn’t matter but every liberal girl I dated made a big deal of it. My wife who I met right before Obama’s 2nd term doesn’t really mention this stuff, has liberal friends that she won’t get into any of it with and she votes staunchly republican. Usually she just asks me who the communist assholes are then she looks into it herself and votes accordingly
