Much to me and my husband’s chagrin, our only child has come out as a Republican. This has been a recent occurrence, and was quite troubling. He’s known his whole life that his dad and I are Democrats. He’s a teenager, (and can’t vote yet) so this could just be a phase he’s going through.
Well today is the presidential election here in the United States, and the campaign has been long and very ugly. My family in Indiana has appeared to divorce me, well, they are a bunch of racists rednecks anyway. I can talk to my relatives and not talk politics, they can’t seem to separate the fact that a. I’m their sister, b. I’m a proud Democrat. Quite sad, and their loss anyway.
The good news? I asked my son if Trump didn’t win would he murder me in my sleep? He said no, and I was very glad. I will sleep better tonight, knowing that my only son isn’t going to kill me, and hopefully Hillary Clinton wins.
