    Similar. His became more like mine over time. I am more empassioned, politically active, and more left (compassion-oriented) than him but he is catching up by a lot. He used to think it was ok “not to be a political person” but now he knows better and knows that to try to avoid that reponsibility is to shirk a basic adult duty as a citizen of this earth.

    We tend to disagree on some smaller things, as certain topics are more important to each of us, but it’s never caused an issue. We lean in the same directions, but sometimes the differences we have will cause us to vote for different candidates. 

    In the presidential election last year, for example, he voted for a mainstream candidate and I went for a 3rd party candidate. Both were similar, but I chose the 3rd party candidate over the mainstream candidate because of their stance on one particular issue.

    Different. But I’m not that all into politics so we don’t talk about it

    Fiance and I both lean left. I couldn’t be with someone who disagreed with me on fundamental issues that are important to me.

    @joya_aspera:  This to a T! We are both very liberal and Fiance was a lot less political before he met me.

    We have very similar political beliefs, and in fact this was one of my inital draws to him – he worked for the Obama campaign both terms and I love how involved and passionate he is about his views and beliefs. It was a point of contention with my ex, who is apathetic to the extreme, so I looked for someone I could have discussions, debates and just talk to about stuff I care about re: politics 🙂

    Basically. I lean left and Fiance tends to choose candidates on a case by case basis. We both voted for Obama last year.

    One of the things I love about Fiance is how passionate he gets about an idea or goal, but that’s also what makes him slightly irritating, politically speaking. We have very similar ideas, almost exact. I just don’t care as much as he does and think he’s a little radical… I hate politics.

    @prettyinpink11:  Our second date was at a dinner with the Governor. He became intrigued very quickly! LOL

    I’m a Republican, Darling Husband is a Union Democrat, a Blue Dog Democrat. That being said, we are really politically equal both Conservatives. We have had some interesting and spirited discussions over the years. He had never looked any deeper into issues before he met me, now he absorbs more news sources than I do.

    I’m a lot more left… but then, I’m pretty left in general, really… about as far as you can go without entering the (really nutty, IMO) “anarchist” spectrum. Sure, we argue about it.
