As you're aware from my postings over the years, my own political leanings are occasionally further to one side or the other. A prime example being the Presidential elections of 2000 and 2004 when I marked the ballot for George W.Bush. It was the only Presidential election that I ever went Republican. Mind you, I have voted Republican for other elected folks. (although never in gubernatorial or mayoral runs)
Oh, right, the points.
For the most part I have been able to clearly indicate what tipped my vote in a particular direction. That is what I use as a gauge for deciding who I am able to maintain a friendship with.
When it came to the current President, I actually knew of (in real life, not internet life) only one person who was pro-Trump. That is, one person who openly stated his thoughts. He was also strongly anti-Clinton. On the other hand, he was not particularly pro-gun rights. He additionally was for the most part, open minded and accepting of others, regardless of their gender, race, lifestyle choices.
My relationship with him essentially hinged on not discussing politics. We talked along those lines, prior to the election and for a short time after. Then on, only about other things.
He exited earthly existence, last year in January.
Living in a part of NYC which leans to the left, it's rare to cross paths or swords with people who apparently have no heart. They are not people that would intentionally hang out with. Not even for a cup of coffee. (Unless they were at risk of picking up or inflicting harm to themselves)
