A liberal friend of mine thinks Obama is being “hamstrung” by an uncooperative Congress and could become a lame duck President, through no fault of his own.
How to talk to a liberal if you must? And worst of all, she says she isn’t a Liberal but an Independent.
I’ve culled most of them from my roster of friends..family too. noone is above getting my axe....This one is an old college roommate and I love her.
But I don’t know if I can take this much longer. She’s going on about Wall Street and bankers being the problem lately.
Do I cut and run or try to ignore this part of her and keep the rest? Oh, and I’m not one of those cooperative wussy “okay, we won’t talk politics’ types.(her weekly suggestion but then she blathers on anyway)
This is about our country and our freedoms and I won’t be shushed.

Put the past in the past in this case. There are many beautiful, conservative, hot, intelligent and smart (alphabetical order) women out there to make friends with!
Then tell her how much you value her friendship and then ask sincerely...now what do we do?
I had a long term relationship with a woman who was an absolute master at changing the subject. It got to where I knew she was doing it, but I let it go because I knew it was her way of telling me she “didn't want to talk about it” without saying I don't want to talk about it.
Think about those words. They are repugnant aren't they? They came out of your mouth.
Provide no succor to the enemy. Cut all familial and social ties with liberals. Shun them. Burn the bridge. Don't even tell them why.
Wow, what lousy advise you're getting here. Of course you keep your friend. Persuade her over time with certain "teachable moments" and also the way you lead your life. Conversions do happen, even later in life. The best gift you can give this friend is an understanding of how the real world works. The worst punishment is to leave her to flounder in the sickness of the mind that is liberalism.
I can’t tell you what to do, MM, but 4 years ago, I was in that same situation. I walked away....44 year friendship. She was getting more and more liberal and I was the opposite.
My college roommate....I missed her a bunch for a long time...not so much now.
I have removed all liberals from my life and it is much better without them!!
