    Re: Voting For Obama Keeps Families Away From Each Other For Thanksgiving

    I avoided Thanksgiving this year because I knew all I would hear about was the Evil Emporer Obama. My family is...I am not sure what to call them but as far right as I can imagine and fundamentalist Christian. Plus my sister believes in all those conspiracy therories with Alex Jones and Jesse Ventura. I just couldnt do it this year. I will go Christmas, unless I can think of something really good.

    Most of them already do work. Some are in our military (I know because my own family is one of those 47% and my husband is active, and my income is only 9/11 GIBill and reserve pay, since I am a student and stay at home mom). The vast majority of those who are in that 47% have low paying jobs or are students or are retired. They are not living off the system to begin with.

    I dont even think that the conservatives will even pray for Obama. Their hate is so great.

    The point is they dont pay enough taxes, not their character or willingness to work. It is not even a right or wrong thing with Romney, the Republicans and the 47%. It is, as one would expect, bout the money.

    This is just so silly. While I'm in line with most of my family politically, I have plenty of friends who are much more conservative than I am. I just don't talk politics with them.

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Re: Voting For Obama Keeps Families Away From Each Other For Thanksgiving

    Only thing that kept my family apart this Thanksgiving was because I had to work. The myriad political positions we espouse (and there are many), have never kept us apart. A family that isn't already problematic wouldn't be divided by something like that.

    I can, however, see how really extreme positions could keep a family apart, but probably not things like taxes. A gay teen probably wouldn't want to spend Thanksgiving with family members who will continually attack him for his orientation and proclaim that he is sinful and wrong. No matter what else we have in common, I certainly wouldn't want to spend time with people who keep insisting that I'll burn in hell for not being exactly like them. So it's basically fine except for the douchey religious types.

    Because they would easily beat you in a debate using their talking points from Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck.
