Writer's Block: Agree to disagree

Have you ever stopped being friends with someone over differences in political views? Are there any issues that are so important to you that you cannot be friends with someone who holds a contrary opinion?

Nope, but everyone I know who hold contrary opinions to mine respect my opinions, and I respect theirs. To me, that is the important part, and the one part that everyone depressingly forgets. This country has a major problem right now with intolerance of differences of opinion, and I think that things would be way better off if people could learn to see and appreciate where others come from. I'm not holding out any hope, though.

(edit) huh? what's with the tags?

No but it can change my respect level for them.

Weird thing is..I can respect almost any political choice. What I cannot tolerate is people that follow a person or party to the letter JUST BECAUSE, or start really hating on other people because they belong to the other side rather than because there is actually a problem.

For all the posts you've made to mock what's going on around you... I'm glad you chose this one to be serious. I REALLY respect you because of your stance on this issue. :)
