I am the only Liberal in my circle of friends & family. I feel very strongly about my views, but i don't talk about it much. Not even here on CM, i read but stay out of it. Anyhow, i'm really sick of being put down & made to look stupid because of what i believe in. I know i'm going to be called all kinds of things...but i actually like Obama & i like what he is doing. Of course there is room for improvement, but that goes for every human being.
For Liberals, just curious...what are some things that Obama did that you liked or agreed with? I can't be the only one who actually likes the guy here. How do you deal if you are also surrounded by mean conservatives that try to make you feel stupid for what you believe in?
Conservatives, i have heard every put down so you can really save it. I already know how much you don't like the guy...

Look..this is a public forum and it sounds to me like you have a HUGE chip. Do you think your poor wittle self is the ONLY one? That it ONLY happens to libs? No honey...it doesnt. BOTH sides are guilty of this BS and if you are older then 12 you just need to get over it :)
By the way...CafeMom has groups JUST for liberals where you could have posted this. I call troll or Sh*t starter....one or the other :)

Your question was worded fine, no one should have been offended. I say avoid politics with your family if you can. If you can't keep standing up for what you believe in. I have fought with my husband's side of the family but we do keep it light hearted. I never stand down I always say what I believe. If you can't talk about it with your family maybe you should try to join the discussion on cm. You might like it.
