3. i had 11 stickers on my car during 2004 election and my republican hubby didnt say a word

 

as a matter of fact, as often as it was brought up, he would chuckle about my car. and often pointed it out to his buddies.

no

all are not the same.

6. Maybe you will meet smeone new here on DU or working on political stuff in your town, if you

have time.

If not, I hear there are some online dating services that sort people by political views, and I think there may even be some for liberals only? Even if nothing serious comes of it, you might find it fun to exchange flirtatious notes with someone for a while? (Assuming you even want to have anything to do with anyone right now. If not, it's completely understandable. :hug

8. So glad to hear this, my sister.

 

It was a strong indication of what kind of disrespect he would show you in the future. Your political outlook was not his to change or control. Control freaks are always bad matches for any woman. It's an ominous sign for a relationship. Here's hoping you find someone who respects your point of view.

10. I hope he'd good and dumped

(I'm female, Freddie is a cat)
Many years ago I briefly dated a guy with some pretty Neanderthal ideas about women. The more I got to know him, I realized how ingrained this was. When I dumped him he was totally shocked and had no idea why I would find his viewpoint offensive! Probably beating his wife somewhere as we speak.
For me, this was a learning experience; I didn't realize that I was a feminist or liberal until that experience cleared it up.
Consider this a learning experience.

25. Used to really love C2C when Art Bell hosted

Even enjoyed Ian Pundette, but George Nooray kinda rubs me the wrong way. I wonder if it's because he is a RW wacko. Has had some of the RW lunatics on a few times like Jerome Corsi, and occasionally the talk turns political and he is definitely a RW'er. I think Art Bell was too, but he never really let it be obvious. But if C2C has an interesting topic, I might listen, it puts me to sleep anyway.

32. He discussed it on his show one night.

Art said that he normally doesn't talk about politics and then proceeded to say he voted for Obama.

I think Art has more "depth" than the typical crazy RW.

A little conservative on some issues. Liberal on others.

Snoory is awful with his index cards asking the same five questions (How did you get interested in this? Where can we find your book?) and John B Wells is a total right-wing goddamn loon. Fuck that asshole. George Knapp is hit or miss. I don't listen anymore.

Never let anyone dim your own light. If you can't put stickers on your car because of someone, then it's not the right someone.

22. Stay strong


and starting a personal journal/diary always helps! It can be amazing to look back in one of those over even just a few weeks and really see what is going on vs. always trying to figure it out day by day at the moment.

Plus it's good for the spirit. Best of luck!

If he can't comfort and be there for you and have your back, you're better off on your own where you can find someone else if you want to.

To quote Marilyn Monroe in The Misfits: "If I'm gonna be alone, I'd rather be by myself."

You go, girl! It took guts and you did it. Congrats and kudos!

your car. He doesn't like it to bad. Here is an idea just tell him since you can't agree on politics that from now on you guys don't talk politics. If he starts remind him and if he continues walk away. You can't argue with yourself. It works. I did it in my family.

I find I can't deal with RWingers anymore, especially when they start regurgitating Heritage Foundation talking points and when I point out that they are being lied to, they won't admit it even when I present them with facts and figures. I figured out for my sanity that I have to cut them loose. The last RWinger I dated was so racist I had to cut our second date short cause I couldn't stand to listen to him anymore.
