Im mostly curious as to why you capitalize every first word in each line. Also wonder if you know your use of the letter u is supposed to be the word "you"?

Just wondering...

Just read some of the comments on Political/ other Controversy forum, that place is a war zone. I stopped going there a long time ago.
Lost long time friends because of different political views. I can pretty much walk away if discussion gets too intense, the only way to get me work up is bashing military and our troop. I can care less about other topic.

You need special skills and extra thick skin if you want to discuss politics with your friends. Good luck.
I stopped going there too, more recently. It's not even a debate over there, everyone just wants to be right. Too many personal attacks, it got emotionally exhausting and when I realized I was reading posts with my fists clenched with tension, I knew it was time to bail.

I don't know how old you and your friend are, but he sounds very immature.

Also, as someone else pointed out, discussing politics can make people go straight insane! It's ridiculous in my opinion.

It was hard for me to follow as well. I was wondering if the poster was doing this on a cell phone.

I say as I have often said, politics and religion do not make for good conversation among "friends".

Default Typical Republican Hate

To my opinion.

So my friend goes off on me like yea u were such a hater u said all these mean things about him
And now u like him see how u are you so bipolar u always changing your mind blah blah
I said calm down why are u getting so emotional about the whole thing and insulting me so he rushes
Off the phone after I tried to talk to him about why I changed my mind.

Do u think my friend needs help becuz this conversation went crazy. Not to mention he changes women like the seasons (I use to show how he switches up alot too)maybe he's projecting his own self hate on me??

What say u?
Many Republicans are normal, non-stressed people who beliueve what they believe but don't bash others for their views.

Then there are the OverRepublicans who go absolutely nuts about the President and anything good anyone says about him. Take Governor Christie for example. He is a Republican that said good things about Obama and his constituents went nuts over it, saying he was a fraud and a back-stabber. Obviously, Christie is a normal guy who can actually have a conversation with a Democrat without having his blood boil.

I had a friend freak out on me like this during the election, and I just ignored here. She eventually got over it but I haven't forgotten how she acted.

I learned not to discuss politics with family or friends. It saves assault charges later.
