friends and politics

My friend knows nothing about her candidate's platforms. Yet after we said we would not discuss politics, she called me to gloat. I hung up on her and blocked her number and texts. She did not see the debates, she is hypocritical.

Awkward

Two of my in-laws ganged up on me over my political views on Facebook just a couple of days ago. Needless to say, I won't be spending Thanksgiving with them. Awkward, to say the least.

No

My friend and I share some of the same ideas about politics, but on one we are on opposite sides of the fence. We have decided to just not talk about it.

Yeah, we had a big fight about one issue

One issue in particular made my friends and I fight in a big way. We haven't been friends since.
