Just spent time with my liberal friends and I’m so drained, and sad. (Portland, OR)
I’m finally trusting my instincts and will be voting libertarian for the first time. I was raised liberal progressive Democrat and have lived in Portland, OR for the last seven years from the Midwest. I’ve always held the same political views as my friends, and especially out here. I just spent a few hours with good friends of mine, they got into a big anti-trump conversation, and I ended up explaining to them why I’m switching gears. They were asking me if I was choosing to become pro-police, racist, and fascist all the sudden at the age of 37. I did my best to explain to them my reasoning, but I was accused of indecision and allowing fascism because I will not be voting for Biden. Throwing my vote away. If it’s not a vote for Biden, it’s a vote for Trump, and therefore evil. My closest family members, my father and my sister, feel the same way as my friends. I won’t back down, I can’t back down. But it’s such a lonely feeling.
