Based only on the number of people who come to this forum with this being one of the specific things they require, I'd gather there are a number of people who believe living close to someone who doesn't share their political views is like living by a portal to hell. It's so strange to me that there are people who believe someone who doesn't share their political viewpoint will be a horrible neighbor and those who do share them will be wonderful neighbors.

Really. If you keep the weeds below waving height, collect your garbage cans the next day, and your kids don't use the street as a playground, you could be a Rastafarian and I'm good.

If you will notice, that sentiment is expressed here from pretty much one side of the spectrum ...
