O boy where do I begin...kinda funny but not. In the last election I didn't vote for Obama I vote for McCain...and for some reason this bugs my mom. Ever since I was l can remember I hav always ben democrat through association, meaning if my parens were dems so was I, so I have always voted dem, up until last year. Now I live in WI my parents live in CA. I talk to my mom every week about once or twice a week and for about 2-3 hrs, yes, lol I talk to my mom alot. I call her for advice or just the general chit chat...well last week we were talking and I mentioned something about Brazil winning the olympiads and she said she was against it and I said I was for them winning that Chicago didn't deserve it, then I went onto say that Chicago was a cesspool of violence and crime, I live in Milwaukee, about an hour and 10 min from Chicago, so I get the news from down there and then suddenly out of no where she called me a "racist" and wow I ws floored and I was like what...what do yo mean...so she proceeds to say that I am being coaxed by my hubby, who has been a repulican for quite sometime, but he too has voted dem, but now is full blown republican, anywho she says that Chris (hubby) is "influencing" me and that he votes repub. because he's white...so I lost it and told her that there are alot of latinos who vote republican not just white people and that there has been a huge increase w/ latinos switching parties...o my it wa bad, well not bad, but just very uncomfortable, so I guess I'm writing to vent, still annoyed and there is no use in talkin to her about politics especially about Obama, lol it's like she defends everything he does and it just irks me..I left the conversation saying this to her "well I'm sorry you don't like the fact that I have officially changed over to the 'other side" of politics but your savior is going to be the end of the USA and of couse she got mad, fuming I'd say, I love her and the thing that kills me is that before Obama was in office we always talked politics but ever since the voting things have changed in the way we talk to each other, ahhh thanks ladies for readng this!
