    Yeah, I know. It's been drilled into my skull ever since 2000 happened. I keep wanting to fight against it though cause I still don't get it.

                    I'm a white male, and I hesitate to say I'm (fiscally) conservative in public. I have found when I say I'm a moderate conservative, I get "BIBLE THUMPING GUN-TOTING HOMOPHOBE WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?!?!?!?!"

                    I'm not denying that the extremists are completely nuts, but don't lump the majority of us into that niche. Huh, sound familiar?
                    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

                      Then you should be talking to Rush, and the GOP. Not us. They're the ones who co-opted the term conservative with "BIBLE THUMPING GUN-TOTING HOMOPHOBIA". Not the liberals.

                        Can I at you in retort?

                        I used to be a fan of his back in the early 90s then he went full Rush. Just like Trump, never go full on. Bad idea. Horrible idea.

                          And I can't talk politics where I work because so many of my co-workers watch nothing but Fox and think liberals are literally trying to destroy the country.

                          It has nothing to do with affiliation, it has to do with what the local community standard of tolerance (or its lack) is.

                          I find the idea that conservatives are demonized, as a general statement, laughable. From where I'm living and working right now the exact opposite is the case.

                            I dare not talk pol with my dad. He was conservative, now a total (not dramatizing/etc) bleeding heart lib. You mention ANYTHING that isn't to the left of Paul Wellstone...good luck. He makes Paul look like a middle of the road guy.

                            Edit: to be fair, a couple of my truck drivers at work? Holy "right" ignorance, similar to what you deal with.
