People are purple too

My next door neighbor is single, male, obviously libertarian, and in the hospital on oxygen with covid and pneumonia. Another neighbor whose politics I don't know but who is vaccinated called EMS because he was too weak to do so himself. I called his ex girl friend because I don't know any of his kin, just in case and we talked about it and I learned that she is a vaccinated Republican, a Texan, I can tell from her accent. Several of my best friends have been Texans and I have a soft spot for them. Except for the patient we all agree that this is a medical and not a political issue. I don't want any Republican or libertarian friends, but I don't want political differences (unless they are dangerous) to keep me from being kind. It is really hard, but both women are well aware of my political opinions and we were still able to communicate (through phones and masks) to somewhat ameliorate another human's suffering (even if it is his own fault). These are very confusing times and I don't really trust almost anyone anymore. That is a damned shame.
