    It sounds like he's looking for reassurance more than anything else.  FOX News operates from a "scare them to death & keep them scared" basis.

    My sister is into FOX & married to a Republican.  They have their viewpoints of liberals sitting on couches waiting for the welfare & food stamps to role in.  But....her own mother-in-law, another Republican w/ the same views, has to depend on SS & Medicare for her very survival plus the $200/mth each of her 4 kids chip in to keep momma afloat.

    She, a Republican, didn't save for her retirement.  

    My sister is actually an old softie, loves my gay daughter to distraction & thinks the kid walks on water.  It's just so much rhetoric.  Try "you could be right, Dad"..... then take him out to lunch.  

    Your dad obviously doesn't want you to think he's a crazy man.  Another obvious thing.....you opinion matters to this man.

    Just give him a hug.  He sounds scared.
