I'm a new poster on DU

I've been reading DU for a year or more but have just begun to post to the forums here. I describe myself as a progressive liberal who usually votes Democratic, but who will vote more for the person I prefer regardless of party. My parents were life long Democrats but all my siblings (5) are right wing wackos and born again evangelicals. I like a good debate, but will rarely respond to personal attacks and insults.

2. Welcome to DU, left-of-center2012!

Glad to have you posting.

Interesting family dynamic you grew up in. You probably know how to hold your own in a political fight!

5. Wrong you'd be

With my family, it's their way or the highway.
We don't communicate much after 50+ years of being on the opposite side of the fence.

Personal attacks are a sport around here though.
