This election is too weird

This is only my 3rd presidential election I'll be voting in so I can't claim to have the wisdom of the ages. Take that for what it's worth.

My dad has always been a lifelong Democrat. Union member. Straight party ticket.

He's going for Trump.

My FIL is the straight laced businessman. Archetype of the GOP bedrock.

He'll be sitting this election out.

All anyone has to do is listen to him for 5 seconds to realize he has no clue. I know a lot of republican women that are getting together to vote for HRC, Trump dumped on women one too many times for their tastes.

Hates any form of taxes
Gun owning NRA member
Despises Obama

Registered Democrat to vote for Bernie
Hates Hillary, yet is voting for her, because he is terrified of a Trump presidency. And I quote "Trump scares me."

Strange days indeed.

How's loverboy?
