26. One of my best friends will not email me

We've been exchanging emails for many years. He went from being a anti-Dubya conspiracy theorist writing things that even I thought a little too fantastic. Now he is 179 degrees. The birther movement, Sheriff Joe the hero, 2016, Tea Party, Obama the Commie...I could go on and on.

When he kept shooting emails that we MUST vote for Romney because the future of our democracy depends on it and that Obama is a treasonous foreigner that is ruining every fabric of our freedom and is slipping us closer to Communism every day. I pushed back and within a half dozen emails he told me that if I didn't care about the United States and the Constitution vote for the son of a bitch and by the way I'm outta here. I'm not too worried about our friendship. We went through things like this when we were kids and we always come out of it the best of friends and I think this will be no different.

What worries me is it apear we might have dodged a bullet this time. At what point will we run out of luck against the Kochs and Norquists of this world. Scary thought indeed.
