I met my wife in college and we've been together since. But if I hadn't and I was still dating around 25, I can't imagine dating someone with a radically different political stance then mine. My wife was more centrist in the beginning, but my views have rubbed off on her. She rants about political things more than I do now. I think I've just stopped being surprised at the stupidity of the left.

My wife refuses to talk about politic with me. She does no research she just believes what people tell her to believe and what feels right. When I try to share with her the facts and the data she becomes even more frustrated with me.

It makes me sad. I would really like someone to talk to. Oh well.
You have not properly trained her.

Disagreements over politics is one battle that I have never faced with my wife. We had a slow courtship to get to know each other’s ideology on politics, religion and each of our roles in the marriage. After 31yrs of marriage I have never had a disagreement over who we should vote for and I’ve never told her who she should vote for.
It would be absolute hell for me to be chained to today’s definition of a liberal woman and though I am not a proponent of divorce I’d sign the papers and live in a single wide mobil home contently before I could bite my tongue around today’s liberal women.

Most Democrat voters just cannot bring themselves to admit, that they are easily manipulated fools and suckers, that they are wrong and have believed a bunch of lie and propaganda from the extreme Democrat socialist communist party and the *fake* news Media, our Country’s greatest enemy **by Far**.

MAGA!! Vote Trump and Republican in November to stop the insanity!!!!

Okay. Maybe I’m missing something here, but don’t we have a secret ballot? How are you going to know how I voted unless I tell you? Or I can tell you anything and you won’t be able to check it for truth.

Idiots!

Just say, “Yes, dear,” and vote the way you want. Your marriage is saved and your candidate is elected. Why all the drama?

This.
Leftist females are terrified of there own shadow. Thus, fear leads to anger. anger leads to hate, hate leads to human suffering. Yoda said this, so it must be true. Lol seriously, it's all fear driven. Sad
And a basic lack of understanding issues and relationships.Also susceptable to "brainwashing". Happy to endorse a simplistic party line. Easy to find the Koolaide.
Its frightening.

I refuse to lose life long Friends over politics, let alone my Wife. How many President's have come and gone in my lifetime? How many close Friends do I have? I'm surprised I still have a Wife after a LEO career.

Ask questions.

Ask her what her Democratic Eutopia is supposed to look like. Then ask her how each conflicting policy is supposed to acheive that. Logically extrapolate the actual results.

Dr. Thomas Sewell said ask these three questions:

1) Compared to what?

2) At what cost?

3) Do you have any hard data to back your claim?

No Far Left policy can survive that kind of scrutiny.

Your mission Jim, should you choose to accept it...
You cannot succeed at arguing with or converting emotions with reason , facts, or science. It is like shovelling sand against the tide.
Or is it like the old wrestling with a pig. You get sweaty, dirty and tired while the pig enjoys it.?

I must say that my little five foot wife is brutal when it comes to her politics. I watch NBC news every day. She will not stay in the room when it is on. I keep telling her that one must know one's enemies. The rest of the time it is FOX News or movies. I fear for some of the Dems safety if she ever sees them in person.
I have to laugh at times. Even though I"m far to the right about most things , my wife sounds like Archie Bunker while watching the news.

I refuse to be friends with or marry idiots. Far safer than needing to worry about politics or anything else for that matter.

People who refuse to accept you as you are and can’t move beyond stupid crap aren’t friends.
