Relatively Political: Left/Right Debate That's All in the Family

One of the biggest challenges for those of us who live in the left-leaning Bay Area and whose political views are right-of-center is navigating the oftentimes treacherous waters of politics and personal relationships. And this difficult situation exists across the nation wherever left and right meet. Let's just say there's a reason for the old axiom about avoiding the topics of religion and politics.

Nowhere does this clashing of political cultures become more difficult than within the family. But Maury Litwack, a conservative strategist on Capitol Hill and Executive Director for the Conservative Coalition for Israel, and his father David Litwack, a top fundraiser for the National Jewish Democratic Council, have come up with a novel way to approach their political differences.

It's called Relatively Political or, in other words, political debate that's all in the family. Offering humorous yet informed debates on the political issues of the day, this blue father/red son team provides a refreshing alternative to the usual rant-fests. Anyone interested in booking Relatively Political can do so via their website.

Now, if only the rest of us could figure out a way to laugh off our differences, we'd be all set!

This sounds like our family. While I am not a dyed-in-the-wool conservative, I have much contempt for the party of which I was a member until I recently registered as Decline To State. And my family are all staunch Democrats.

Thanks, this should be interesting reading.

Families matter and keeping open the lines of communication is paramount especially with relatives who have contrasting political views.

Don't pretend to be interested in any form of bridging the ideological (and psychological) gap between you and most of the rest of the country. With story titles like "Muslim Leftists Love America, Western Leftists Hate America," you continue to show you are more interested in demonizing, misleading, and dividing.
