My parents are both Democrats. My father claims to be a moderate Democrat, but he is actually pretty liberal.

My mom really is more moderate, but she is still a Democrat.

I am obviously far from a Democrat. And, I have many political arguments with my father.

I just let him think I am a Republican. I really don't feel like defending my ultra Libertarian views with him.

Anyone else have political differences with their parents?

Your dad seems cool.

His whole family seems cool.

Heck, his grandpa has an account on here.

My mom's next to Gandhi on the political compass. Not sure about my father.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Both pretty apathetic though.

extremely, my mom is anti gun, anti abortion, pro war, anti drugs, pro progressive taxes, etc. It's not so bad until she sees how strongly I feel about gun and abortion rights pretty much, and how I call BS on pretty much every war.

My dad=typical tea bagger/faux news patron -__-

It is such a fail because he will repeat everything he hears on there and gets offended if I know differently.
Him: At the schools here the girls are being taught abortion as birth control, also no abstinence groups allowed, even student run! And this is in 4th grade!

Me: I went through the local sex ed program in 7th grade over there, and all they "taught" was abstinence with pics of STD's and a video of childbirth, mixed in with word searches that had me looking for penis, vulva, testis, etc so I'm really not falling for your faux news parroting act, I know your just as full of it as they are.
Him: well fine, but they did that to the school I went to....
me: Maybe, in california, in the 70's, when women's rights were new.
Without Royal there is a hole inside of me, I have no choice but to leave

My da is libertarian, my mom isn't really politically involved, but usually votes democrat. I am the most liberal person in my family, by far.

My mom is more liberal, my dad is more moderate. However, my mom's parents are liberal, and my dad's parents are conservative. This leads to debates about Obama, Clinton, and Rick Snyder every so often (Snyder is the governor of Michigan - GOP).
"The solution [for Republicans] is to admit that Bush was a bad president, stop this racist homophobic stuff, stop trying to give most of the tax cuts to the rich, propose a real alternative to Obamacare that actually works, and propose smart free market solutions to our economic problems." - Distraff

"Americans are better off in a dynamic, free-enterprise-based economy that fosters economic growth, opportunity and upward mobility." - Paul Ryan
