As most of you know mom is not an American citizen. She is a legal resident of the U.S. and has been for over 30 years. She recently has decided to become a citizen. The process at every step 1. costs money. 2. is loooooong. So when she told me she wanted to vote in the next election, for Obama, I sadly had to burst her bubble and told her that was not likely to happen.
She started to become interested in politics during the Clinton years and since then I thought I was teaching her the ways of the Democratic party. Well Liberal views anyhow and somehow this has turned her into a raging Republican hater. Maybe not hater, but massive disliker. I tried to temper this during the Bush years but somehow it just got worse.
Anyway hopefully mom will get to become a citizen in time to vote for someone she likes soon. I'm just afarid she'll start campaigning for someone and start some sort of broo ha ha. She doesn't take shit from anyone! And will back a cause to the teeth. Think that's why she's one of the union heads at her work. She likes to give'em hell if they do people wrong.
