My wife and I had married not long before the presidential elections. One day I commented to my wife that I really liked that guy from Arkansas, and he seemed to have some practical, common sense approaches to government that might be worth a listen.

She stopped what she was doing, stared at me for a moment, and said "He's a Democrat. He will lie and tell us whatever we want to hear to get himself into office, then tax us out of existence..."

I married well, and she hasn't changed her stripes so far.

A big part of the last election, and this election involves the Supreme Court. Decisions have been 5/4 for years. I'm tired of the liberal slant on 2A matters and requiring small bakeries to do things that violate their beliefs.

A liberal lawyer friend is fond of saying - that's the law today then point out it is based on a 5/4 decision. Tomorrow the view on the law might change.

Decide which direction you want courts to go, then vote accordingly. The person at the top picks the nominees.

She voted Trump, wore deplorable t-shirts, but now, she must have been influenced by her sister, she is paying attention to Democrats.

How in the hell did you let that happen?

My wife grew up in a liberal household with her dad even being a mayor for 10+ years. The funny thing is that her and her brother are the most far right people I know. Her brother would actually get into horrific arguments about politics with their mom.

I would either leave politics alone because you're not going to change them and visiting your kids and grandkids is much more satisfying. Otherwise you could bring up a topic and ask them how their candidate would fix the problem and after they tell the fix politely ask them how it will get paid for.

Truth means nothing to a woman, Delmar. Triumph of the subjective. You ever been with a woman?

Believe me Delmar, woman is the most fiendish instrument of torture ever devised to bedevil the days of man. Wink

I think I’ve found this evening’s cocooning entertainment.
My worst political disagreement with my wife is trying to get her to stop ranting about how disgusting and evil every single last Democrat is.

sucks for you. But I wouldnt talk politics with her if she held a gun to your head. Let it go and try not to let it get to you.. Go cancel each other out and call it a day.

I thought this thread was about making beer or even better pure grain alcohol.... oh well, I've been known to misread often....

A few years back I kept reading these billboards around town about the up coming Milk weekend and I could not figure out why we were celebrating milk?

MLK weekend.....

my wife and I disagree on a lot of political stuff too... I feel your pain.

OP hasn't been back since the thread started. I wonder what his wife thinks now that the Democrats only choices are Socialism or Senility.
