I think honestly a huge hurdle is the fact that an inherent part of leftism is coming face to face with the stark reality that our current system is fucked and unfair for almost everyone. Not sure how well that message can come across to a person who is dealing with the weight of the world. I think focusing on the community and shared burden handling that socialism aims to survive might be a good approach to showing them that we can collectively make the world a better place..

Getting a campsite is difficult, you have to be on at the exact second the sites become available and get lucky picking one that someone else doesn pick, since you have to select a single site.
While China and Russia and dangerous client states such as North Korea and Iran jockey to outmaneuver everyone else and gain a dominant hand for their global schemes, there are fast growing, independent nations looking to partner with the United States and thereby bring their strategic, economic and political values into alignment with ours. That list begins with the initial TPP partners, but as many as 10 additional economies have expressed interest in joining. And 11 other nations have come up with a trade deal after years of negotiations.
Plus, at this point, there has been a huge breech in trust and even should you get back together, how do you know that he won change his mind again? You can live a life where you wonder if your partner has one foot out the door. Take some time to mourn your relationship and then just get back out there. You don want to be with someone that only 80% loves you anyway..
2 points submitted 11 hours agoVery frustrated at myself right now. I had the Staples 10% Amex offer on 9 business cards between me and my wife. I added them to one of my accounts and one of my wife Didn realize I needed to use the multiple tab method to add them to all the cards that had it before it disappeared.I could have netted about 9k points and almost $600 worth of credits.
