Losing "Liberal" Friends

I opened my Facebook, and damned if I didn't lose three "liberal" friends today, which is absolutely fine with me.

First, friends are supposed to be civil to each other.  Oh, wait!  I forgot that I live in America and this is the Internet, so never mind.

Second, although I've been guilty of it myself (big time), there shouldn't be name calling.  It's just immature.  I throw the second punch.  After all, aren't I just a failed human.

Third, a lot of these clowns are really Bernie seeds from two years ago, not Democrats.  They are trying to push the party so far to the left that swing states won't vote Democratic.

Fourth, these "liberals" like to call themselves "progressives"-as if they actually know what it means to be progressive.

President Teddy Roosevelt was a progressive, as was President Woodrow Wilson.  They coaxed the American voter into things they didn't know they wanted-like women voting.  They weren't loud about it, either.  These guys are.

Sure, I'm loud and abrasive myself, but that's only because I only care about social issues and I could care less if the bank foreclosed on someone who was stupid enough to get an adjustable mortgage.
I'm more concerned about my girlfriend's kids getting shot at school than I am about some idiot who bought a house he couldn't afford and became a deadbeat to the bank.

That's not my problem anymore than school bullies are to these guys.

And speaking of school bullies, they really don't care about that problem-and have stated as much.

These progressives really believe that all we Democrats have to do to get Trump out is:

Ray Recco 💪 ballots Ballots B A L L O T S

Jim Rousch Ray Recco Stolen, stolen, stolen.............JESUS!

They truly believe in American democracy-which Europeans know is as dead as the ants I fried in the microwave for two minutes.

Fine, let these people believe what they want to believe.  Let them "unfriend" me on Facebook.  It's shallow anyway.  If one unfriends someone on the Internet because of something like this, how petty do you think they are in the real world?

To be liberal is to be open-minded.  However, these people are so set in their ways that they won't see give raiding the castle another chance.  That's not liberalism.  That's being as stubborn and set in the mud as were their grandparents.

Know what?  Fuck 'em. 

Even if the Democrats can prevent Trump from stealing 2020, most of these local Democratic volunteers from the suburbs of America really have no idea what it means to be liberal.
