I have a buddy who is a Naval officer in the reserves. He is a Democrat because his dad was a union guy. Once the budget cuts started to impact fleet size, he started to grouse. I said it's a damn shame we just spent a few 100 million changing street signs in New York instead of maintaining an existing ship and he agreed. We then started talking about all the other cuts we would make and then-bingo- a fiscal conservative was born.
Now I get e-mails from him sending me examples of gov't waste.
Maybe complain to your boy about how excess regulation is negatively impacting your work. He's a doc, so he is under seige from medicare/medicaid/regulations/Obamacare/ etc...He'll start to complain and vent. Don't press it-just listen and nod your head knowingly. They eventually come around if you don't force it. IMHO of course.
Thanks, we don’t talk much about politics now and I count on my other son to set him straight. Funny, in a household of conservatives, one grew to lean to the left.
He has so many good qualities, including being a very caring doctor.
