It’s unusual to find like-minded (progressive) souls in here in the deep South


It’s unusual to find like-minded (progressive) souls in here in the deep South. Today I met some indirectly through, of all places, Craig’s List. I know what just flashed through your mind, … it wasn’t through that kind of ad lol
Given I just got a recumbent exercise bike, I advertised my ellipse machine. The younger (mid-40s) couple that came to look at it had recently moved from California. We struck up a conversation across all kinds of topics from working-out (he was a marathoner) to a healthy diet (she’s a nutritionist) to the recent (medical) marijuana debate to politics …
Long story short for my Pawleys Island progressive friends – we now have another couple to invite to the next drinking liberally get-together on our back porch.

I believe there are a fair number of closet liberals (or at least moderate conservatives/non-45ers) around, unidentified. I am more willing to let people know my political proclivities w/ 45 in power, because I think people need to be aware that people they know are opposed to what’s going on, that not everyone in their sphere is of like mind.

Yeah, 2 more liberals in S.C.! “They are multiplying like locusts” … as one Republican lamented during a conservative meeting in S.C.
