While the theory of opposites attracting one another may well be valid, I for one just can't do it. I personally have difficulty having mere friends that are liberals let alone a partner. Frankly hearing someone defend the likes of menopausal maniac Hillary Clinton turns my stomach. Seriously I get an instant ulcer. I think the woman is a lying, manipulative bitch that has no business running for the Presidency. Yet there are a few and very few at that, people that support this woman that makes Nixon look like a boy scout. Now if I have difficulty being "just" friends with someone that is a democrat, how in hell am I going to have a romantic relationship with a democrat? For that matter how can anyone with strong political views cohabitate with a partner having polar opposite political views? I for one did, in fact I married an independent!
How did I marry someone not from the same political party? Simple, my now "ex" husband lied. I suppose he lied as to impress me and to get me. Oh he got me alright. He got me and learned just how conservative I was. As I had always displayed signs of my favorite candidate I did so as a married woman during the Bush/Kerry election. My then hubby had somewhat of an issue with my sign, so much so that he took my sign down. What did I do? I did what any self respecting female republican would do, I put it back up. Childishly my ex took the sign down again and stubbornly I put my sign back up again. I found the whole thing amusing and laughable, my ex did not as my ex turned into Mike Tyson and nearly took my nose off. Carville and Matalin my then hubby and I were not. We were far from it, and from the moment I nearly lost my nose in my support for George W. Bush I knew that partners and politics could not mix!
While I was married to a man that chose to lie about his political party affiliation, I once dated a man that cared nothing about politics. My thought was I could mold him and recruit him to the republican party. In theory it was a good thought. In reality it wasn't happening. I was successful in turning this man into a republican, but the trouble was his way of life was very much that of a liberal. I was successful in recruiting him to the republican party, and registering to vote. I was unsuccessful in actually getting his ass to the polls, and voting. That's right I dated a man that, oh God help me, I can't even say it, I dated a man that didn't vote. Me! I actually went out with a man that did not vote in the Romney/Obama election. Why? Why had my then boyfriend not voted? Well this ding dong had been out the night before and couldn't get out of bed in time to vote prior to work. Frankly it was a miracle this man made it to work. That being said it was a miracle he even held a job. Actually two weeks later this find of mine was fired in true liberal fashion. Like I said this idiot was clearly a Democrat. It's a shame that all of the liberals that year couldn't have tied one on, gotten baked, high, and obliterated as to miss the election, we might have won!
Partners and politics is a serious situation. I myself feel partners should share similar political views. I speak from experience. I like my nose and nearly lost it for Bush! I'd like to keep my nose. I'd also like to keep my sanity, and therefore I also can not date a man that has little to no interest in politics. Politics and the direction of our country is far too important to me to watch someone with zero interest in our Congress, Senate and Presidency. I feel those with no interest in politics to be ignorant. The truth is the state of our nation at present is a sad state of affairs. We live in a scary world and it is of the utmost importance that we be educated and aware of what politicians are for and against. Thanks to Obama our nation has become more racist, more vulnerable to terrorism, more in debt, more barbaric, and more in trouble than it's been in years. The only ones who can change our nation's present situation is us.
I don't know about anyone else, but I can not date a man that is not on the same page as myself when it comes to politics. Other people may well be able to date, cohabitate and EVEN marry people having opposing political views, I can not. I can not, as frankly I'd like to strangle every democrat from here to timbucktu. It just unnerves me that anyone can be a democrat. It unnerves me even more that anyone can still today, support Hillary Clinton. The woman in my opinion is a liar surrounded with scandal, and in my opinion she should not have any support. I believe Hillary has blood on her hands as she and Obama both watched in real time the Benghazi massacre. The woman should be in jail and with the current investigation into her emails as being conducted by the FBI she just may, and if anyone can support this woman they are either ignorant, in denial, or both. Whatever the case may be, I have no tolerance for a liberal, no time for a liberal, and certainly no room in my life for a partner that is a liberal.
Partners and politics can be a deadly combination. Had I stayed married to my idiotic moronic independent husband I might be dead. Had I stayed with my uncaring, oblivious boyfriend with no interst in politics, I might have killed him. I'm kidding of course, however it is my belief that partners and politics do not mix. Why would the two mix? Countries go to war over having political differences. People die fighting for their political beliefs. Therefore how can two people in a relationship with opposing values, and political beliefs possibly make it for the long haul? I don't think they can, but I dare anyone to try. For myself, I've been there and done that, and I'm not gonna do it again. I need a real man for a partner, and real men are republicans. So if a good looking Democrat comes my way I'll smile think he's a hot mess, walk away and say, "I'd rather be single...for now!"
