    I know a lot of Liberals. I know a lot of Conservatives. I know a lot of people who don't give a **** about politics. I know a lot of people within 50 miles of me. Do you want me to go through all of them in my head and tick off how I think they would respond to the question?

    A ballpark estimate is fine, thanks...

    Re: How many liberals to you actually know?

    Generally speaking, I tend to avoid politics where my friends and acquaintances are concerned. Things are simply a lot less stressful that way. However, seeing as how most of the people I hang out with are either military, or in military related fields, I would say that they trend toward the moderate "Right" of the political spectrum on most issues.

    Where more politically outspoken companions are concerned, I gravitate towards Conservatives.

    Outspoken Liberals simply feel more like sparring partners than actual "friends." While that can be fun from time to time, it also gets old pretty quickly.

    My brother, on the other hand, given his choice to pursue stand up comedy as a hobby, is basically in the "belly of the beast" where Liberal political leans are concerned. Honestly, I get the impression that he's just barely tolerated by most of the people he hangs out with for that exact reason.

    Let's see. I know 2874 people within 50 miles of me. Let me think about each and every one of them.

    I can't ballpark. I live inside of 50 miles from Boston where most people are Liberal. I live in NH where most people actually from here are Conservative but we have Liberals migrating here from MA daily.

    I can only ballpark people who I have actually discussed politics with and that would be a small smattering. And of those, most are Conservative. I live in a very upper middle class town.

    far to many.

    One is too many...

    I was raised by Ivy league Liberals and most of my extended Family are Democrats.

    I have a Family member who teaches at Berkeley.

    I love them dearly but we'll never agree Politically.

    Yes. Name them all.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Lol .....I'm in my Mid-40s.

    One of my most beloved Family members is a Liberal who lives in Berkely. My parents were Ivy Liberals and so were their Sisters and Brothers.

    I figured as much. It's just typical to hear that attributed to liberal thinking, I figured I'd take the cheap shot to return the favor on one of the few times it presented itself.
