Sigh, no. That's not how things work. I don't think things and then they happen. Things happen and then I report on it. I don't believe that I or my children were discriminated against. It actually happened. This magical world you live in where thinking things makes it magically happen exists in your head. Reality operates differently.

That's what we vote more Republican. People up here tend to be hard-working with deep family values, and yes religion is very important. Remember it was just a couple of years ago that Union finally passed alcohol sales... and it was a very narrow margin then....... My guess is that is the Libertarian Party ever got their act together, that N. Ga. could go that way, because up here it's just let us live our lives the way we want, we'll treat you well, as long as ya stay out of our business as well.
So true. Family and Christian moral values are key. It is a lovely area and folks respect each other. Love the area

Sorry and sad to hear of your and your family experience, that should not have happened but sadly still occurs too often sometimes even in a much more liberal area. There are nasty folks everywhere and from every political inclination.
North Georgia can have many close minded individuals and it certainly is not a liberal area but thankfully I haven't had a bad experience.

They are also extremely intolerant on issues concerning LGBT folks, race, gender, and just about any other social issue you can think of, including a deep-seated hatred towards the poor and vulnerable.

On the plus side, N. Ga is beautiful so if you can get past the nasty people up there, it's a rather lovely place.
Wonderful example of the oh-so-tolerant and inclusive regressive left.

Did you want him to be "oh-so-tolerant" of Neo-Nazis?

Way to completely miss the point. My point was two-fold:

1) Our president is not a neo-nazi supporter. It's an absurd narrative and honestly quite terrifying that there are people out there who believe everything that their social media echo chambers and mainstream media tell them.

2) The idea that anyone who voted for Trump must also be "extremely intolerant on issues concerning LGBT folks, race, gender, and just about any other social issue you can think of, including a deep-seated hatred towards the poor and vulnerable" is one of the more ignorant, close-minded comments I've ever read.

I think we should stay away from turning this thread into a political back and forth and try to keep itwith constructive replies, there are plenty of gutter ball political threads in the Poltics forum.

Yes, Blue Ridge is same-sex friendly FOR THE MOST PART. Like anywhere else in this world, there are bigoted folks in Blue Ridge, too. I've lived on and off there for most of ten years, and have met many same-sex couples - shop owners, tourists, fellow homeowners, and the like. And yes, as Lovin mentioned earlier, you'll find very strict religious folks there as well. But, all in all, I think it is pretty accepting. One of my best friends and his same sex partner visit their home there very often...
