    They are people.

    Always.

    seeing people as things is the way to get on my enemies list, so I don't go there.

    Misguided foo...er...I mean people.
    Really I can accept opinions in all flavors as long as I see they are sincere in their beliefs, and that belief is based on something other than red vs blue nonsense.

    They're certainly human beings...and there are some that are insightful, rational, and present logical arguments for certain position...but for the most part I don't trust a liberals judgement...therefore no liberal friends and no liberal employees. I cannot rely on people whose reasoning matrix is warp to the extent that they conclude that a liberal ideology is the proper course.

    People, of course. But it varies.

    In terms of work, I think of "my political opponents" (staff for the other campaign) as the opposing team in a football game - competition, but respectful.

    In terms of posting on the internets, my "opponents" are just misguided people, to various extents. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, no matter how wrong they are.
