Are you and your spouse/significant other of the same politics?

    My husband is much more conservative politically than I am. I'm more of a right-leaning moderate. We agree on some things and disagree on others. For example, he's attending a TEA Party rally on Friday, but I have no interest in going. I agree with some of their views, but I just don't know enough about them yet. How 'bout you and your partner?

      Depends on the issue. On some things, we're lockstep together. On others we're pretty far apart.

      You might want to address that issue before wasting time debating politics here.

    Yes, my husband and I are closely aligned politically. I couldn't be with him if we weren't smile

    when it comes to the bedroom, I have urged her on many occasions to embrace communism...

    but sadly, I am more often in not left to my own devices as an independent

    Voting for the GOP would be grounds for divorce in our house. I only recall voting for one Republican candidate--Governor William E. Milliken who was the kind of Republican who is nearly extinct these days.

      So basically Stockholm syndrome has set in at the Deeds house?

        Nope. Honesty and decency and concern for the public interest.

          You consider the current President honest?

            Yes, I do. Do you consider his predecessor honest?

          Sure, Ralph - I'm sure there are no honest, decent Republicans who care about their fellow man. Why don't you research which group gives more to charities?

    I don't consider either of them honest!
