Good point, I am the hostess, I have one church friend coming who is also conservative, my kids are conservative (by the grace of God) but all others wouldn’t vote for a Republican under any circumstances and luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuv ubama.
Interesting comment from a ubama voter at the grocery store yesterday though holding forth in the baking aisle:
“My grandmother would be appalled that am buying Best Choice sugar, she only baked with C&H. If I bought food the way she did, I would have spent an extra $100. I can’t believe how expensive the food is. ‘they’ don’t care about people anymore. ‘they’ should tear the government down and start all over.”
I’m hosting for my son who is AF reserves, biracial yet conservative as the day is long, his girlfriend, who is for the most part, conservative; despite going through the university lib grist mill. In addition, my mostly liberal and quasi libertarian daughter and her Gary Johnson supporter husband (who happens to resemble “Steve” on the old “Married with Children” show). All in the presence of my once-blue-collar-democrat, now RABID conservative farm boy husband (both my children are his stepchildren) who has a gigantic temper and threatening presence of a pro wrestler. I converted him to conservatism-you know what they say about the ex-smoker and his/her vigor!
I have prepared a ten course meal so between that, deep frying the turkey, football and texas hold ‘em, I hope that will keep them pre-occupied to the extent that there will be no erruptions (there have been in the past.)
Wish me luck!
She had one thing right, “They” should tear the government down and start all over but she has no idea why. Actually she is right that “They” (the people who have destroyed the value of the dollar) don’t care about people, so she got two things right but is without a clue to the real reason.
Her idea of starting a government from scratch would probably be to start off with something even worse than we have now.
