My family wants me to be a Republican
I'm going to start off by saying that I pay very little attention to politics. I try not to concern myself with things that I'd rather not bother getting into, so I really don't know much about the current election aside from the candidates. For the most part, I'm pretty much clueless. However, if I had to say I leaned anywhere, I'd say that I'm closer to being liberal than conservative.
My entire family is Republican, as far as I can tell. My mom isn't too bad about it- she makes the occasional comments about how she dislikes Barack Obama, but that's about the extent of it. My brother doesn't seem to pay any attention to politics and just agrees with whatever his parents think like a good child. My sister doesn't give a rat's ass, but I'd guess that if she had to vote she'd also just go with whatever the rest of the family chooses. None of them are the problem because none of them bother me about my political affiliations. The problem is my dad.
My dad is a die-hard conservative. He listens to Rush Limbaugh frequently, to the point where he never listens to music when driving anymore, so I don't look forward to driving anywhere with him unless I have my iPod with me. He audibly complains about the Democratic party often, and sometimes he calls me over to his computer so he can impart some wisdom on why liberals are morons. He is convinced that global warming is a conspiracy started by liberals so they can raise taxes. He believes George W. Bush has done no wrong and that Obama will ruin the country and potentially bring about the apocalypse or something silly like that.
I'm not a confrontational person, and I really dislike talking about my personal beliefs- especially in front of my family. I've been a closet atheist for at least three years now simply because I expect my family to react negatively since they're all somewhat religious (though we don't attend church). As such I am unsure about what I should do so my dad will stop bothering me about this. So I suppose I'll turn to the intelligent folk here for some suggestions.
