I totally recognize the differences and values of each side. And the strength of their beliefs and philosophies which leads to the “I am right and they are wrong” attitude that is so blatant in their rhetoric. I guess I just look at issues from a very pragmatic angle which is very different from the ideological angles the far right and far left have. I have very good friends at both ends of the spectrum and yet we stay friends. I respect their beliefs even though they don’t align with mine in some cases. But I do have a hard time with those not willing to even open their minds as to why others see things differently and be accepting of that.
