    In time, conservatives will be treated with the same default dislike that other types of riff-raff are.
    Like I said, closed-mindedness and unwarranted self-assurance.

    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.
    Okay, but saying all conservatives are represented by the far right is not a true assessment.

    No, but they're usually close enough for my tastes.

    Re: Conservatives

    Politics are rarely talked about when I lived at home. My parents both watch CNN and Fox but my father was more spoken about his views. He's hates both sides equally (being a former Vietnam Vet who is a union worker doesnt grant you too many political friends) granted my fathers hatred is not on par with mine however. As far as I can gather my father just wants to get to retirement and enjoy it...hopefully. Other than that politics is pretty much not spoken, other relatives that came over rarely mentioned it.

    I think we might be related.

    My aunt (my ONLY aunt) wore a John Kerry for POTUS button to my grandfathers funeral (years ago - obviously) and since my father is a self proclaimed neo-con - you can just imagine the gathering after the funeral. My aunt has NO class whatsoever and wanted to whine to my father (a Vietnam vet) about all the reasons why he should vote for Kerry - AT THE VIEWING. It was ugly, to say the least.

    And people wonder why I drink at family gatherings.

    Edit to add: When my daughter goes to my folks' house for a visit, she says she doesn't like going over there because all grandpa does is 'talk about his politics'. LOL He also hates the fact that I'm neither right nor left... but that's another post altogether. I'm closer to his views than I am, my aunt's.

    Grew up in a huge hockey town but just never got into it. I have a hard time watching sports that I never played.

    I used to have a neocon, conspiracy theorist brother-in-law. Yet another of the many things I don't miss about my marriage.

    You can have my very racist (and otherwise super hypocritical) southern pentecostal holiness preacher father in law if you want.
