just wondering how many people who dont share your political beliefs yall are friends with? I personally am friends with tons of people with very different views, people who vote Liberal, NDP, Green, and yes even Bloc, not to mention their different personal ideologies.
So, do your friends political views mirror yours? oppose yours? vary?

Of my two best friends, one is a die hard Liberal and the other is a NDP supporter. The funny part is that there are few issues that we fundamentally disagree upon. I wonder, am I a Liberal, or do they just not know what the CPC is all about.

My smother in law used to be the president of the local Liberal Womans ass., My father in Law used to be a pretty big wig in an international union. Friends are from all political stripes. My Hubby and I are the only "outright" Conservatives we know on any deep level, I live rural so of course many many acquaintances are Conservative leaners.


Things used to get pretty raucous around here during large gatherings.

I have a sign on my door that states you can bring your appetite to my house but leave your politics at yours.

Most of my friends are either conservatives who care about politics or liberals of the "I've always voted that way vein".

I don't have any friends who are NDPer's or Blocheads. Don't know if I would like them if I did.

I have a lot of conservative friends. Some friends are liberals and only a couple of my friends that I know actually are NDP'ers.

In this country, if you do not know at least 45 lefties, I do not know where you would be living.

PS. I have hard core lefty aunts, uncles, in-laws, co-workers. It is very depressing sometimes to hear the willing suspension of disbelief that is inherent in leftist thought.

One of my oldest friends is a partisan (currently disaffected) Liberal. Most of that particular circle of friends is left or left-leaning, but not insanely so. As kwlafayette said, its pretty much impossible to be social in this country if you can't make nice with political 'enemies'. On the plus side, it gives me some insight into the left-wing mind, and lets me practice a little conservative evangelism - I've got most everyone on board against the HRCs and the Green Shaft, for instance.

It helps if you get to know them BEFORE you find out they are seperatists ;)

One of my best friends is a communist who studies global warming! :lol: it's funny because its true


I have very few conservative friends, the youth are all influenced by the teachers who spout ndp bs all day.

I live in Alberta where you can count the number of hardcore Liberal supporters with your fingers.

I've known a few Liberals and New Democrats. However being in the military most members are generally small-c conservatives.
