Wow, really? Really?


I really, really need to stop reading my more conservative friends' political ramblings. Really. Even moreso, I need to fight the urge to reply. It can only end in tears.

Well I *am* a bleeding heart liberal, don't you know... :)

I worry when my family starts to rant. I'm the liberal of the bunch. As you know, I'm not very liberal either but my family can be... extreme.

I actually have trouble having more conservative friends. I don't rule it out completely, but sooner or later it gets personal.

I'm gay, and I've been dirt poor, and I have too many friends whose lives have been saved by socialized medicine not to take a right-wing rant about these like a stab to the gut.

That's pretty much my take on it, too. Oddly, at least one of my conservative friends is not only socially more liberal, but he also was dirt poor and lived out of his car at one point. You'd think that'd make him more understanding, but instead it ensconced him in the "pull yourself up by your own bootstraps" mentality.

Otherwise, they're perfectly nice people! :)
