Wow, way to totally ignore the message in the OP, because no way can diehard partisians even consider the possibility that those on the other side of the aisle are actual, you know, people instead of "the enemy who must be crushed."
I can't believe that some people are so insecure or just plain rabid, that they can't even allow a "liberal" to be praised for good works without trying to turn an uplifting, feel-good thread into a hyper-partisian food fight.
Personally, I can't even fathom what it must feel like to live with such all-consuming hatred based on nothing more than differing ideologies. It really does pervert the meaning of "humanity."
Leopards do not change their spots, and neither will you, but feel free to prove me wrong.
You will continue to reap what you sow.
If you are actually honest about this thread, prove it with your own acceptance and civility going forward.
