Can we still be friendly...

When our choice in who we support politically aren't necessarily the same all the time? Even with our political beliefs being roughly the same? How about when they diverge in the opposite direction? Would you sit down share a beer with your political polar opposite?

I would not share a beer with Marxists. We know how they do things.

No need to share a beer with a Marxist. They’ll just come and take it.

I'll drink with anyone, just last night we were with our Republican friends, you'd be amazed at how much we can agree on.

I've done it. I've done it wearing a ponytail as I was a hard news reporter and editorial writer ... on the side opposite theirs. Some of my best friends have come from my sometimes contentious interactions with right-wingers.

Interestingly, my views and their views have moderated over the years.
