The older I get, the less tolerant I am with GOP friends/relatives.... [View all]

I used to be able to tolerate them. The GOP seemed less nutty and less radical 15 years ago.

Now they all seem like they are totally insane. No logic. No facts.

I hate to try to sound smarter than any of my GOP friends but I honestly cannot get ONE of them to justify their stances on any issue. They cannot defend their policy's. They cannot tell me why they hate what Obama has done. And any facts they provide are easily countered without a return argument from them.

I have less and less patience and respect for them.

Makes it hard to remain friends with people I have no intellectual respect for.

Maybe I am just getting old and grumpy!
