The amount of hostility I've gotten from my liberal friends has been astounding. I want to say: Hi, y'all won. I have every right to be part of the loyal opposition. At least I'm remaining loyal to my country and want it to stay the course and not veer off into socialism/communism like Obama and Congress would have us do.
I have been attacked over abortion a number of times. One person told me that it was a good alternative to an unwanted pregnancy. Seeing as how I was an unwanted pregnancy (I am adopted) I found that sort of offensive. And this person KNEW I was adopted and began their rant with "Against my better judgment because I know you're adopted..." We went back and forth for awhile over private messages until I'd had enough and I told them exactly what I thought of Obama. They accused me of personally attacking them (didn't know I was messaging Obama...) and now refuse to communicate with me. So I can only assume they are so passionate about abortion that they put my feelings aside and I'm supposed to overlook that, but if I criticize the President over VALID points (inexperience, naivety, using the race card) it is a hateful attack on them. Insane! This person was also offended because I asked "Yes we can WHAT exactly?" I am still waiting on my answer.
I'm just fed up. I have thought about canceling my FB account but that would be a victory for them and I won't let them have another.
How do you even begin to rationalize with a liberal? They don't seem to want to hear facts or use common sense. They seem to want to make every decision based on how something makes them feel, morality and ethics be damned.
Anyone else in this boat?
