    I haven’t lost a single friend yet. Of course, I have no liberal friends. :D

    In the past a liberal and a conservative could have some good friendly debates. And at the end of the day, no harm, no foul. Yesterday's liberals were mostly bleeding heart do gooder townies that were pretty much the younger generation with good intentions and a good heart. Today it's entirely different. The liberals of today for the most part have become radical and extreme, and doing major damage to not only our country but to populations of people. So in short, I guess where I'm headed with this is to say it's very hard for me to associate with family or friends who take these stances.

    Friends are way overrated, especially liberal ones. :D
