I can already tell, that this will be one of my favorite blog posts in a while.
I have a very close friend, someone who I really like and get along with, but who has the exact opposite political beliefs as me. I think he is incredibly insane for being a Republican and supporting Bush, and he think I am incredibly insane for thinking Bush is the worst president in the history of the United States....which he is.
We will call my friend WAYR (why are you reuplican?). I am not going to name my friend, simply because I havn't told him I was going to write this blog, although he has posted on some of my past political blogs and is never too shy about it. WAYR and myself get along extremely well when we play softball together, when we go eat Wendy's together and talk about creating movies together, and all that other stuff normal friends do together.... but here we are on the opposite spectrums of political beliefs.
In case you did not know my views, I am so far to the left you can barely see me. I will be voting democrat this year, although I feel that green or independant parties align with my view far more often then any democrats.
WAYR and myself do not neccessarily go out of our way to argue about our beliefs or cause each other harm, but topics do arise and we are both very steadfast in our beliefs. I am sure many of our surrounding friends are annoyed by our verbal scwabbles when it comes to these topics (in fact I am positive).
Keep in mind, I really value WAYR's friendship, I think he is a really awesome guy. And yet I sit here knowing, or at least assuming that WAYR is still supporting the Republican ticket and will vote McCain in the upcoming election.....
and I think that is damn sad.
a vote for McCain is a vote for killing more innocent US and foriegn citizens in an unjust war.
I look forward to WAYR's response.
