My older brother and I have never shared the same views on things. He lives in California and well he’s always been left of center. Well that’s the way I saw it. We talked about politics on occasion and although we disagreed it was okay. That all changed this past week. I foolishly answered a question he asked that was political in nature. I then followed up. Big mistake. Then a phone call that I should never have answered. A shouting match and me hanging up the phone ended it all. I felt terrible. I didn’t get a word in during the phone call only to say stop it and hung up, but it was enough to make me feel horrible. I already have one brother that has nothing to do with me or anyone else in my family for that matter. I was so afraid that I was losing this brother too. And it would all be over politics. I only speak to a very select number of people about politics. I have written about my views on this blog often. I am a news junkie and yes, I did watch the RNC. But after this experience, which is still somewhat raw, I have decided to keep my opinions about about politics to myself. I will not be talking or writing about them. I will keep my opinions to myself until after election day. After telling my brother he said you have to be true to who you are. That is so true, so I will just keep my mouth shut… for now.
