Comment: I feel the exact same way!

I feel the exact same way!

Only its my "better half" that is asleep. We got married 5 years ago before I woke up. In every other way we compliment each other. Only in the past 2 years have I been feeling a resentment towards his absolute willful ignorance of whats going on in this country. I knew he was a liberal when we married but that meant nothing to me. We live in a very liberal college town so most folks around here could be classified that way. I am at my wits end. I cant talk to him about anything to do with politics. He is normally a calm man but if I even comment on the news he will yell at me that Im spreading FEAR. End of conversation. Go to bed angry. I've chosen to go about my business, I prep, I buy silver I watch all my news at work. But it breaks my heart that my own husband doesnt get it. He thinks the gov is essentially good and is there to build our roads and govern the country. I've gotten him to watch the Obama deception and the Wikileaks doc, but no conversation. I think we are just humoring each other. This is not the marriage I envisioned. Luckily I have 2 close friends who I can talk to, otherwise I would go crazy. I feel like I'm living a secret life. Does anyone else have a liberal spouse and how do you deal with it?
