I honestly don't know that much about politics, and yet she believes that the RNC is full of people regulating their lives.

A bunch of modern day Pauline Kaels.

Is this a trick question? I have a lot of conservative friends.

Of course not: these people’s thoughts feelings wouldn’t be able to stand up to the scrutiny of an opposing viewpoint. They can only exist in an echo chamber of like minded (and I use the word “mind” very loosely, here) ignoramuses.

Yes, of course I have friends, family, and acquaintances who identify as Republican (and/or "conservative") but for most, I don't know. Politics is just not a popular topic, and I don't bring it up unless I know that the other(s) want to engage in polite discussion.

Yeah, makes sense to me. Let's only engage in discussion with those we are likely to agree with; that way we can learn so much about other & differing viewpoints - hell, we may even learn some facts, and use them to suport our positions!! :sarcasm:

A dear friend who lived across the street from me during my elementary through high school years just confided that her brother, (a liberal) notified her that he can no longer associate with her because of her political views. She isn't even all that political. I would describe her as more "traditional." Her parents both died early and her brother is the only family she has left.
I said I was sorry for her, but sorrier for her brother. What kind of a sad, mentally unbalanced person does this?

Politics is one of the Big Three "taboo" discussion topics when in polite company (the others being Sex and Religion, although I would also add Professional Sports). These are topics that are LIKELY to lead to high-emotional conflict, offense, and possibly fisticuffs and catfights. Therefore, when the purpose of a gathering is friendly, familial, or professional socializing, just don't go there. There are plenty of other things to talk about, and everyone just wants to have a good time.
