Do Fundamental Political Differences Kill Friendships?

Because I’m feeling that they do. Or that they can. But I’m not sure. I like to think that I’m generally open-minded and consider differences to be part of the beauty of human existence. I mean, we can’t all be the exact same and think the exact same way – that would be boring and pointless. It would be stagnating.

Why I’m DONE with the Democrats

Pushing Joe Biden is the last straw. It’s as if they WANT another four years of Chump. Screw the false bravado of a free country and democratic election process. Presidents are chosen by corporations and back door political gaming for the benefit of said corporations and lining the pockets of those whose pockets are already overflowing. I’ve believed in the system. I’ve believed in the process. I have struggled these past couple of elections to hold on to hope that issues would be resolved. Forced myself to think positive.
