I've seen all sorts of talk from people on these boards spewing their beliefs on how nasty liberals are. Liberal people seem to be such a horrendous offense to them that they're blinded by the fact that liberalism and conservative, for most individuals, is just disagreement on policies... not a sign of character merit or flaw. The disagreements may be strong, but they shouldn't soil your view of people as much as they seem to. I live in Texas and I work and live around all sorts of conservatives. When you're around me, you might not know it but you're dealing with a bleeding heart liberal. I'm not a person who will cut you off. If I can't safely get to my destination without being an asshole, I will alter my route. I'm the guy who will open the door for you, or keep it propped open if I see or sense you behind me. If you're trying to turn into the roadway while traffic is piled behind a light, I will usually let you slip in. If I receive your mail with mine as a mistake, I will see that it gets returned to you, whether that means putting it back into the mail stream or doing a bit of research to locate your correct address (I just recently did this with a check for $2,700 I received for another individual). If you drop something and I can alert you, you bet I will, and if I can't I will probably bring it to you. I'll show great restraint and remain courteous to you, even if you take your frustrations out on me. This won't last if your intent is to antagonize however. I'll be entirely willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. I mean, that's just a small number of the things that I do. They're habit, and they're in my nature. When we're interacting in day to day life, even if I know or assume you're a conservative I will treat you like a human being. I don't carry around my politics with me in real life on my shoulder. I have enough problems to deal with, why would I want to have to deal with that too? This exact same thing can be said to any liberal as well, who believes that conservatives are awful people. Do you ever realize that some of the nicest people you interact with in day to day life might be your polar opposite politically? Anyway this is just a rant thread. If you want a TL;DR, FUCK YOU YOU'RE GOING TO HELL!
