    the only liberal Democrats in the family, and are also the only entrepreneurs except for my sisters son.... who makes about half a million dollars a year.. wait for it... running an actuarial firm that primarily takes contracts from the government to do calculations for Medicare.  So yet more feeding from the public trough.   Yet they all clamor for how the impact to "small business" will be hurt by democrats in power.  I want to scream at them "Hey, I'm the only one around here running a small business -- If I don't think these policies would hurt, how on earth would you know?"  In the interests of peace in the family, though, I just  keep quiet.  They have been brainwashed for so long there is no room for truth up there any more anyway.

    Go Bernie Sanders! You are what a politician should be!

      similar family experience here.  2 of 4 right wing brothers owe much of their livelihoods or education on massive military spending though never had to step foot on a battlefield fortunately for them.  Of the other 2, 1 left the country during vietnam to avoid being drafted, the other being a banker, ... well we know how that's turned out with easy money policies.
      The most successful by a wide margin is my sister, a liberal, and comfortably resides in the top 10% in income and top 1% in assets through her small business which has flourished for decades.  She has never whined about taxes or other typical gop talking points like my brothers have.  The 1 hard right brother works in the same profession as I and has the worst work ethic I have ever known in the profession and that is no bs.
