To my Obama-hating RW repub Sister...

I know today is tough for you. Just know I love you very much. *hugz*

I texted this to her a little while ago. She hugged me back and said she loved me. She says it's all good and she is fine.

Regardless of all that's happened through this political election between us, my sister is more important and she is the only one I've got.

1. I'm going through the same thing with my best friend.

She went on an embarrassing FB rant about two hours ago. I let it go. A few others made some 'gentle' comments. My absence from her post must have been too much for her.

She just posted on my timeline, "Good game. "

Despite her delusional attachment to the right, she's a hippy at heart and has more compassion than the majority of people I know. She's just continuously brainwashed by her psycho mom and lovable, but too religious, ex-husband.

Bottom line, I love the nut and it would suck to lose her over politics.

2. I have relatives who voted for Romney.

On Facebook, I've avoided all political posts, as usual there. They know my political beliefs, and there's no value in alienating them over politics. I'll see them all at Christmas, and the subject won't come up. Some things transcend politics, and should, I think.

9. This is how I handle it as well.

Everyone in my family knows I'm an unrepentant liberal and WILL tell them if they ask. So they don't. And I don't push it. I also know they'll tell me all sorts of hilarious BS about how wonderful the GOP is, so I don't ask, and they don't push it, for the most part. (Except one aunt and uncle who I wrote off long ago. Now I just ignore those two.) The rest of us get along just fine and still love one another. Family comes first with most of us, and I feel very lucky for that.

3. My RW Sister Can Go Fuck A Duck

 

No kind words for her from this house today. We are happy and celebrating, I have no idea how she feels and I could not care less. When she and her crew called Obama a N***** I knew it was over. I will choose my own family, that rich chick can wallow in her misery ALONE. YMMV.

6. Not Drug Addicts or Drunks Just Very RICH Assholes

 

They lurve their money and believe Obama is going to take it away. They can fuck off and pony up some $$$ as far as I'm concerned. BTW my half sister looks just like Ann Romney and she admires her to boot.

10. I feel for you, HoK.

If anyone said something like that to me, that would be IT. Luckily I don't hear that sort of hate.

So sorry you have to deal with that.

12. one of my sisters is crying

for all the fetuses that are going to die.

A few weeks ago she emailed a video of some preacher saying Romney would win. "I believe he has the gift of prophesy," she said. Maybe God was just messing with him?
