7. When I first encounter others, I don't start with politics

Never!

I don't assume that they think the same as I do. In reality, it does not matter but when they start with offering insults to the candidate I support out of the blue? I can't leave it alone.

I travel to all parts of this country, much of it in red states and seldom do I have anyone start in with politics. I guess though, when I do, it blows my mind that they don't understand or respect differing views.
