At our dinner table, we talked politics. My sister grew up detesting politics, while I was fascinated with it all. I believe my first trip to Washington DC, did it for me. I could feel the ENERGY and POWER there.
I've never wanted to serve politically - no way. My oldest son was a political science major and on his way to get his Ph.D. when he died. My other 2 sons are very political but we've all gone our different ways.
Is it possible for conservatives and liberals to live together and love together? Yes, and my family is proof of that. Since 1972 when I registered to vote Democrat, I have switched back and forth. So far, there is no political party that accurately represents my beliefs. So now I am an Independent. I used to joke, that I was a conservative liberal - or was that a liberal conservative? I was told once, that was IMPOSSIBLE!
The husband is really conservative. He's a TRUMP man. (ugh) He's extremely vocal about his beliefs. Well, he met his match when we married. Granted there are issues I kinda agree with him on, but not 100%. I know I drive him up a wall - but then again, he drives me up a wall, being so stubborn. I'm at least flexible and like to see both sides.
So with everything going on these days, I will have to tell them all - leave all controversial subject matters at the door, along with your cell phone. This is a first!
It really doesn't give us much to talk about anymore.
What type of conversation do you talk about at your Thanksgiving table?
