As the election grows nearer and nearer in the US- I've witnessed on Facebook and in my off-line life a lot of arguements about this year's elections. I am sick and tired of the political divide that ruins friendships and can cause harm. As of late, I've been staying out of some of my Ron Paul friends' arguements with Romney supporters and Obama supporters.
I've also been staying out of the Obama vs Romney debate as well. I have no desire to lose friends just because of a political idealouge.
It's gotten to the point where I ABHOR this time of year in American politics. Last year, I nearly lost some friends who were and stil are ardent Ron Paul supporters. It was tough on me as I prize friendships over politics.
This year, I'm always being asked how I feel and living in a battleground state does not help matters any as I've gotten a lot of opinion poll calls and calls for my thoughts- I usually hang up on those by the way as politics tends to anger me sometimes.
I don't support Romney OR Obama- I don't like either party right now and I am SICK of the massive idealouge divide in the US that to me is more of a threat than anything else. In times like these, we should be coming together to help our fellow man, not dividing through political ideals.
So, my question to everyone here is this: Have you nearly lost friends because of political ideals and views and if so- how do you feel about it? I only ask cause I want to see how people feel about this.
