I'm Not Seeing My Trump-Loving Family On Christmas And I Couldn't Be Happier About It


This Christmas will be the third one I haven’t spent in my hometown. It’s a small town in southern Kentucky filled with more than its fair share of Donald Trump bumper stickers and Confederate flags. But even before Trump was elected president, it always made me feel claustrophobic.

The end of this holiday season will also cap the second calendar year I’ve gone without speaking to my parents, and by extension, the rest of my family. My holidays are no longer spent at my grandparents’ house with my parents, sister, uncle and random cousins. My parents helping to put Trump in office was the final nail in the coffin of a relationship that had long been rocky.

And despite people’s well-intended (but unnecessary) sympathy, life has never been happier for me.

What is our position on border security?

Obviously a wall is just stupid. But what is our policy? Should we track everyone crossing? Should we prevent people from crossing from south America without going through established channels. A big part of all these is obviously bad immigration policy of course.

How does this end? It seems tRump will eventually have to cave.

Bernie mania 2018 - feel the Bern!


“If there’s somebody else who appears who can, for whatever reason, do a better job than me, I’ll work my ass off to elect him or her,” Sanders said. “If it turns out that I am the best candidate to beat Donald Trump, then I will probably run.”

Go Bernie! I'm feeling the Bern!
