Hi Julie! emoticon

I won't push and shove you till you give it up. LOL.

I was a Democrat my entire life till alien life forms did something unidentifiable to the American liberal culture and the Democratic party. I defected tot the Republican party last year. I am a moderate and vote my conscience not my party. Sometimes I am also a pragmatist vs. an idealist. My son (a Millennial) is an idealist. I am a child of the 60's so I understand his point of view, but entirely disagree. While I continue to want to change the world and do my best to do so. I also understand what it means to be human collectively. I try to do my very best. I do see a bright future for this world, despite the plagues and problems. I am a true optimist. My glass is half full of lemonade and not sour lemon. Lol.

Thnaks!

Hello to all,
My name is Julie, or Jules if you prefer. I'm not the political type AT ALL. But if you were to ask, push, shove, insist, or just plain yell at me like my brother does, I have to say I'm Conservative all the way.

I also support the Constitution.."we the people..for the people." The best interest of the USA is always in mind.

Although, I do pray for the downtrodden in all other countries that can't fight for their rights as people. I'm saying it's still NOT for the USA to PAY for their governments to help them either. Since that money doesn't go to the people anyway. There has GOT to be other ways to help others than money. Ways to show them how to help themselves.

My husband is Independent, but also a Trump Supporter. We don't talk politics much because of my aversion to it. But having been married going on 41 years this September, and knowing each other 44 years, we pretty much know each other's thoughts about things. Not always, no, but most of the time.

We've been 600 miles apart during this COVID-19 almost from the beginning. I'm in Kentucky with our youngest son, his finance and 4-year-old daughter, my youngest granddaughter. He's still in Kansas City working his full time job, unsure when they will close the doors as more and more people that he works with are coming down sick. Thankfully, he hasn't....yet. I pray he doesn't as he's at higher risk having gone through radiation treatment 5 months ago for prostate cancer. I'm not sure if he's been back to his doctor since, and of course, need to find that out.

Otherwise, we have a daughter and son-in-law who has been married since last November. A 13-year-old grandson and a 12-year-old granddaughter from our daughter. And an older son who doesn't contact us unless he wants money. So, we haven't heard from him for about a year now. Not our choice.

I've started my own business selling dog supplies online after having lost my job of 17 years working in mutual funds a year ago. But I'm much happier and very much less stressed. And I'm losing weight again. It's nice to be here with my daughter-in-law to be because she's been my buddy while losing. She's losing as well in preparation for the wedding, which is in November.

That's about it for now. That's probably all you want to know by now.... emoticon

Yeh---Amen to that! Being grounded was like prison--with no parole! Bread and water served under the door---LOL.

Hope you don't mind me saying, but when all the candidates came out on that stage--and I looked and listened to them, I told my hubby: TRUMP is the man for the job!" Before the first debate, I was pulling for him. Have not been disappointed---and one thing I love about him--is he truly is a very compassionate man with a heart of gold. And Melania who stands beside him, (and never taking any bows) is a class act---genuine in heart. I am proud to say he is the commander in chief. Looking forward to growth on this awesome team! MAGA

emoticon to MIAMIRN---Will come and visit your blog---Don't want you to feel all alone--Don't have any idea how many conservatives there are in sparks---but finding each other is a plus! I always wondered!

Oh back to a little bit of history: I joined sparks in 2012--same year as Cat. I am not a bonified Republican---but a conservative---and as my hubby says if he is asked; "I support the constitution--we the people--for the people." . Not one for all the traditions if they do not have the best interest of our country in mind.

I am sure that this team will accelerate as we Trump fans are winners going somewhere to happen! My wife2B and I have been through many things over the last 42 years together. Keep this in mind, this stay at home if you can order is not a bad as being grounded as a teen......

Hi and welcome!

I’m glad you’ve taken on the role as leader!
I really like having a team for Trump and republicans.

I’m sure you’ve read my posts by now. I am basically sitting here all by my lone self. I have a couple of posts I hope someone will respond to. My latest one is just sitting there. Lol

I don’t have this team on my team list. I think the intensity and political attitude has become out of hand. What happened to decent normal political discussion. I’m not into bashing, name calling, demonizing, catastrophizing end of the US or world discussions. I rather leave that up to apocalyptic authors and what I know as MSM and social media gossip.

I look forward to having meaningful, thought provoking discussion. Hopefully one person at a time, doing our part as individuals we can help make the this country a better place.

Thanks!

Hi! Ive been with SparkPeople since 2012, but stumbled upon the team not long ago.

I come from solid Republican stock.... but switched to Independent some time back..... until 2016 election time.

At first I wasnt so sure about Trump but decided to read his book on
Making America great......

I was impressed that what our country needed desperately was a business savvy , non-political, independent thinking person.

And hes not a perfect man but he is the perfect man for the job!

Among the things I admire about President Trump is the fact that he is a brilliant, successful businessman and that no one owns him.

I decided to give being a leader of this group after Pixie took a break.

So, Im hoping we can make this team great again!
