    Re: Conservatives

    When they said love, I thought romantically. So, then no I don't love any liberals. But most people I know are ranging from progressives to moderates. But that is becaue the political spectrum is further to the left here in New Zealand than the US. Compared to US politics I would be a moderate, New Zealanders normally range from progressives to slightly conservative. In Norway where my family is people normally range from socialists to liberals. So I know a lot of liberals, and my family is quite left wing. I don't really mind liberals becaue they want sensible regulations, but I don't like progressives that much.

    I couldn't love my friends if they weren't liberals, so it's a good thing that they are.

    This is incredibly depressing.

    I think there's a far more obvious reason why I won't be hooking up with him. Look at his self-identification.

    I have many, many friends. Probably half are conservatives. I love them because they are good people. The point of the thread is meant to be "if you know someone as a person, how can you let their political bent adversely affect your relationship?" You love them because you love them, not because or despite.

    If you are a Sabres fan, then maybe we could get drinks.

    Rangers fan? Then go screw off.

    To be serious, I see people's political views as a reflection of the person within.

    I wouldn't want to be friends with someone with views I find repulsive, because I think it reflects a nastiness inside. This goes for racists, sexists, and the far-right.

    It's one thing to not want to be friends with racists or sexists, but it's another thing entirely to say that you couldn't be friends with people who aren't liberals. One is indicative of a discerning character while the other is indicative of a closed mind and unwarranted self-assurance.

    Really? Because only a several generations ago, openly advocating that black people were another species was perfectly acceptable behavior, as was befriending such a person. Friendship with an atheist? That would make you a horrible person headed straight to Hell.

    In time, conservatives will be treated with the same default dislike that other types of riff-raff are.

    P.S. Hockey is boring? NO U!
