    Mind blowing conversation this morning with a RW relative.
    So I got a call this morning.
    Sure you did

    RW relative who has never voted for a Dem in their life was nervous, so called me to ask if Paul Ryan was the same guy who wants to replace Medicare with "coupons".
    Because you are the family liberal nutjob authority on Paul Ryan

    She thought she remembered the name, but wasn't sure if it was the same person. "Yes, that would be him - why are you worried about his budget?". She knew much more about Ryan than I thought she did - and I am not sure where she got her information as she loathes politics - but she was right on the money about the high level issues ("He wants to kill Medicare so he can give wealthy people more tax breaks"). She lives in a 55+ semi-retirement community, but it is very conservative. No telling who said what to her to get her stirred up.
    Loathes politics but coincidentally calls the all knowing DUmmie

    Then I about fell out of my chair. The next remark was, "We need the liberals to stay in Congress to stop them if they get in".
    Sure she did

    What?

    Yes, I heard that right. She loves her R-Rep, but will be voting for her D-Senator. First. Time. Ever.
    I'll. Bet. She. Is.

    I still can't believe it.
    Neither does anyone else actually.

    Baby steps, I guess. Lord knows she rarely wants to hear about politics from me, so kudos to whoever she is listening to.
    Which is why she called you, right?

    Time to change the bong water.

    So,

    "A RW relative who has never voted for a Dem in their life" wants "the liberals to stay in Congress to stop them if they get in".

    Sure. How many are we allowed to post in one thread?
    Be Not Afraid.

    They're not. They've been mailing it in for some time now.

    It's really not fair, to us.

    That is the sad thing. I want to hear some doozies I keep seeing people talk about. I have yet to see one. I know one of them has some sort of major BS story they want to tell.

    Not even half a bong. Pathetic.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    33. and tell her to be careful because in someplaces the conservatives are running as democrats

    esp in the primary it really is wolf in sheep's clothing and this has happened in many areas this last year
    I guess places where pugs have burned their bridges they have no choice but get a new name..........but...same game
    and the elderly changing over may fall for it thinking dem = liberal(or even moderate )



    The thread is getting pretty good at the DUmp!

    She lives in a 55+ semi-retirement community,
    IF she's over 55 then she's ok. Nothing is going to change in regards to her benefits.

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.
