What I mean is...
Do you let politics get in the way of befriending someone who thinks differently from you? For example, for the many conservatives here, do you have any friends who are liberal? Likewise for the libs here, vice versa. I don't know how to better phrase the question. How about significant others? Does anyone here date or are married to or dated a person whose political ideology differed from yours?
Also, do you let politics inform your judgment of that person's character or morals?
Myself, I have friends on both the conservative and liberal side of life. I tend to like talking to conservatives, especially social conservatives because our differences in ideology make for interesting conversation. I find other liberals a bit too whiney for my tastes though I do have friends that are liberals. I even dated a girl who turned out to be a hard core socialist, but when I dated her I wasn't really interested in politics. Extremely bright girl, but stupid politically; I also dated a conservative or at least a Republican--she was a big Palin fan. Politics didn't get in the way of our relationship though.
