  •  These situations are so tough. (3+ / 0-)

    I finally stopped talking politics with my parents.  Similar situation to yours -- They're midwest conservatives, I'm the exact opposite -- except that I don't live with them anymore, thank goodness.  But at some point, as I grew into a lefty over the years, I realized I had a choice: either stop talking politics with them or grow to hate them.  There's no middle ground possible.  So now, we can only have small talk when we see each other.  Nothing of substance.  This means, of course, that I will never be able to change their minds about things.  So, yeah, I gave up on them...because it's the only way I can still have any relationship with them at all.
