    People get emotionally connected to their mindsets. I'm a liberal. I have suspicions of conservative ideas and motives. This automatically comes into play. If I look at myself objectively, I tend to watch MSNBC and read more liberal-type books. Right wing stuff offends me.
    People do evolve. Look at Dennis Miller and Bruce Bartlett who went in opposite directions. What your sister is going through is her business. She may evolve back to a more moderate frame of mind or may go deeper redward. It's her choice. Just maintain the connection. It may mean avoiding certain subjects, but I feel that family connection ultimately means more than ideology. You can always find other people to argue politics with, but you can't find another sister.

    The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government. - Thomas Jefferson
