34. As far as I can see

Liberals, Progressives, & Dems DO NOT abuse others--or they try hard not to. Conservatives, Teabaggers and Rethuglicons DO abuse others, and find no problem with it.

People who abuse others consistently and knowingly deserve to be shunned. In recent years I have found it necessary to look at the political affiliations of doctors, lawyers, building contractors, service companies, other businesses and teachers. If any one turns out to be a Republican supporter, it's a deal breaker --"we just can't do business." I don't care what their reputation is in their field. I have found that it's just safer to move on.

On Nov 6 my sis told me she was working a Dem table at a polling place in VA. The R table was right next to them. All day the Dems sat alongside the Republicans and handed out sample ballots and whatnot. She told me that MANY people would come to her table, see the Dem stuff, and snarl, "I wouldn't vote for that.....Muslim!" (She said she heard the word Muslim over and over). But when people voting Dem approached the Republican table and were handed a sample ballot, they were always nice about it, just a polite "no thanks."

At the end of the day my sis leaned over to the Republican guy and told him what she observed--how rude and ugly the R people were to her and how the Dems were so polite to him. He was quiet and didn't argue. She said, "well, just think about it."
