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.
