Did this just come out of left field, or have you always had political differences?

Just curious...or maybe you'd never gotten into the politics that you each followed.

I'm sorry. Losing a good friend is never easy, especially when there is so much bitterness.

46. A lot of us are living with that.

I used to be a vocal, outspoken supporter of Ronald Reagan. Like a lot of people, I got suckered by the sunny grin and the optimistic phraseology. I cast my vote for Bush Sr in 1988 and 1992. Conservative Republicanism was never a very good fit with my personal outlook, but it was popular in the '80's.

Like anyone with a brain and a heart, I was horrified by the Republican takeover of Congress in 1994. I voted for Bill Clinton in 1996. And sElection 2000 solidified my ideological outlook as a die-hard liberal Democrat. I found DU like an oasis in a desert in May, 2001. And I've been here ever since. People who know me know my personal political refrain: "Liberal till I DIE!"

I'm glad you have found the people who understand you. Welcome to DU.

Even the ones that claim they're voting Republican to support the party rather than to support Trump will still be complicit in enabling him. Someone as vile as Trump should stand no chance of becoming President. Hell, someone as vile as him shouldn't have even stood a chance to become the nominee of a major political party.

Regardless of what people think about Hillary, there is no way anyone who isn't a bigot or as dumb as a rock can argue that she is somehow the worse choice and voting for Trump is therefore justified.

68. Don't be hurt. It is a sad missing part of their id that makes them afraid to be giving. You

are lucky to see them for what they are and realize that that is not what this country is about. Fear and a sense of superiority is driving them to be so stupid to the loses that we will all see if Trump gets power over us.

We have had a very rational, intelligent, and compassionate President for almost eight years and we are spoiled. They can't even imagine the loses we would experience in personal liberties and international standing. Not to mention how these greedy heartless get-a-headers will strip our personal and national financial worth.

Pity them but be ready to fight them legally and logically using every angle.

Hillary is also rational, intelligent, and compassionate with a hands on wisdom that will guide us into a better future for ourselves and our children. She is also surrounded by those who have and will work to form a more perfect union.

Based on what you've posted you had absolutely nothing in common with this person. Your personalities aren't similar or sympathetic and you certainly disagreed on core political beliefs. Are you very young -- like in your early twenties? You sound very young to me as friends doing "stupid shit" declines rapidly in one's 30s and 40s. Also one's tolerance for others who do "stupid shit" declines rapidly in one's 30s and 40s as life decisions -- spouses, children, careers, houses, etc -- require responsibility.

27. I just spent last Saturday with Trump-loving friends

We're a handful of couples that have known each other for decades. They're mainly on my husband's side, but we socialize often. All conservative, which has never been an issue before this election. Trump has exposed a bigotry that to this day I didn't even know existed in them. Example: two of the couples were talking about their recent vacations to Mexico (one to Cancun, the other to Mazatlan.) Both raving about how beautiful it all was....except for "all the Mexicans" The most rabid of them is a woman who has used every social program imaginable, has had at least one abortion, and whose English skills (they're all immigrants) are elementary, even after living in this country for over 20 years. I nearly bloodied my tongue biting down so hard.

34. I agree with the other responses here that say your ex-friend has shown you who he really is.

Here's the kicker though: Trump is allowing many Americans to let the rest of us know who they really are. It's rather disturbing, but as they say "sunlight is the best disinfectant".

I run around in a pretty diverse group across the political spectrum, and up to the point of Trump's nomination those on the right griped and complained, but if they had hatred at their core they kept it well hidden. Trump's blatant misogyny and bigotry has somehow made it acceptable in the minds of some of our fellow citizens to allow their own feelings of intolerance and hate to become part of their puplic display. Well that's actually ok as far as I'm concerned because now I know with whom I am truly dealing with and can act accordingly.

Maybe some day these people will come to their senses and realize that they were taken by a conman and grifter, and who knows, maybe they'll come to understand that the GOP could give a bucket of spit about them, but in the meantime I will automatically discount the opinion of anybody who supports Trump.

I have Republican friends who "just can't stand Hillary" blah blah blah.
Most of them won't vote at all, but a few will probably hold their noses and vote Trump because, as I heard one con on an MSNBC focus group say "He might be a jackass, but if he's the jackass leading the conservative wagon train, so be it." Okay, fine, not worth losing a friend over.

But people who actually LIKE him and LIKE what he says? No, thank you. Don't need that in my life.

44. Yah. I'm not a hypocrite either

If some ridiculous fringe wackjob ever becomes the Dem nominee I'd vote for them even against a more moderate Rep., because Republicans in power cause harm and Republicans in total control would maximize harm. I am well beyond Yellow Dog level. I understand people have the same attitude the other way around. They will vote for Trump to try to stop Clinton, just like I'd vote for, say, Cornel West to stop Ryan or whoever else they pick next. But to think that Trump, or West in the obverse, is a great and laudable choice for POTUS in and of themselves? Nuts is a kind term, especially in Trump's case (West at least has the advantage of intellect).

who was taken over by the darkside. At one time, he was a fun-loving out-going guy who changed over a period of time by watching and listening to right-wing radio and TV. He embraced every issue that he heard on these stations. He was always talking of privatization, taxes, postal workers, teachers, anti-anything liberal, etc. It was too much - I couldn't take it any longer and am much better off without his constant negativity towards Obama (who he never gave any credit and would imprison if he could) & the Dems.

43. Fuck him

Is my attitude,I have pissed off prolly 95% of the resident idiots at the bar I frequent(4-5 nights a week) to the point they wont talk to me anymore.Known most of them all my life.

I still go, and me and the three or four friends I have left get a table and talk loud enough they can hear how stupid Trump is,but refuse to engage any more.

45. Yah being a non-RWNJ bargoer is a trial

I'm not physically capable of defending myself any more so I have to be more careful than I used to be, but I still try to correct the less belligerent loons when I can. Jade Helm was my favorite.... I'm not confronting hardcore Trumpers much as they are too big of a risk in volatility, QED.

47. Unfortunately Trump is a friendship buster

He's probably causing entire families to break up.

And I'm not kidding when I say it may cause the country to split apart for real.

49. I giggle with bemusement at anyone who predicates friendship

I giggle with bemusement at anyone who predicates friendship wholly (or even more than a small portion) on the preference of candidate or a party.

But I do realize that in youth, a small distemper of passion often outweighs the most solid of judgement.

72. The OPs issue is much beyond preference though. We're talking vocal rabid support of bigotry here.

 

As well as wishes for death? I'be only experienced similar from friends of friends and nope, it is a deal breaker. Someone with that need to be hateful and obnoxious will never be my friend. I can see forgiving it in a very old parent perhaps, but any of my peers I'd recommend they get help for their anger. Actually I have, lol.

50. "hope somebody kills me"

 

a real friend would never say that. I know you are feeling low, but you don't deserve people like that in your life.

52. He may be having doubts,

And he needed you to be for Trump, so he wouldn't have to heed the doubts.

I try to be patient with people about politics...its hard to know what is in their mind.

My friends know exactly where I stand, so any Trump supporters keep a wide berth. And , I let them know that they are welcome to cast their vote for whosoever they please.

To me, he is not worth losing a friend over.

60. Think of it a lot like a divorce...

except you don't have to pay child support...

Just break contact for good and move on with your life, my friend.

This person was not a friend and never will be for you.

70. A lot of us have lost friends and family members this way...

you're not alone. Cold comfort I'm sure, but anyone with judgment that lacking is better off out of your life, either permanently or temporarily while they regroup and show genuine remorse for those horrible words.

You've known him for 20 years. Is he a Johnny-come-lately to politics, or did you once see the political parties the way he still does? If the latter, he probably feels as if you've lost your way, when in fact your eyes are now open.

80. That's a shame.

But a success for the Republican Party.

My RW-nut brother-in-law and I have an unspoken agreement not to let the republican party divide the family. We focus on what we have in common. It's kind of a game, but it's been working for almost 2 decades now.

For people like your ex-friend, Trump has to be elected for him to find out that he was duped.

84. You are better off without him.

His willingness to throw away 20 years of friendship over someone like Trump says a lot about his character imo.
