A “cut & paste” reblog from On The Fence Voters … since the reblog button isn’t working … here’s the link:
I feel the same way but I don’t have any problem cutting ties with friends who are devoted to Trump. The way I see it … hanging out & partying together thirty or forty years ago is something I did with a whole lot of people & doesn’t really mean that we were close friends. The fact that ANYONE could be a devoted supporter of Trump shows that we have absolutely nothing in common on a philosophical & spiritual level and that’s what means the most to me. The ONLY people that are not in this category are the members of my immediate family. & I mean immediate family. I will cut some slack for my mother, my brothers & my sisters but they are the only ones. There are cousins I no longer care to speak to. Oh … if we meet at a wedding or a funeral or some other reunion, I’ll be polite & all. But that’s as far as that goes.
As this country descends further into chaos & crapola, I don’t feel the need to remain friends with people who are part of the problem & indeed, are cheering on this descent.
Thanks to Jill Dennison at Filosofa’s World for turning me onto this great blog!
