My mum varies between Liberal and NDP, and my Dad’s a registered Democrat (she’s Canadian, he’s American), and by and large I agree with them on just about everything. They’re both fairly moderate, but really so am I so I don’t disagree with them much. There are a few cases where we’ve had conflict, specifically around intervention in Syria (this was around 8 months ago). I argued for no intervention for a variety of mostly pragmatic reasons, my mum argued for intervention based on moral reasons, which I sympathized with but still disagreed. Besides that, we’ve had little disagreements, though I suspect that I’ve thought and am therefor rather more invested in the social (though not civil!) liberties side of things.
You know, it’s funny, every time I come back to tumblr I’m reminded why I quit.
Because when the first two posts contain someone thinking Obama’s literally a fascist and lesbian furry erotica, there’s a problem.
