I have noticed, that those at either extreme (liberal or conservative) tend to be the most intolerant of ANYTHING that differs from their own views. They may claim to be "liberal", but that only applies as long as you agree with them . My parents and my ILs stand to the far right and it's frustrating to try and keep my mouth shut as I hear them contradict themselvs or hear them venting about something and I just want to say "look in the mirror - you could be the poster child for ...". One of these day's I'm going to bite my toung off .

Good luck to you all and stand strong.
