Conservatives and liberals tends to have a very different and extreme view of each other.
Liberals who talks about Obama's potential assassination tends to be closed minded people who believe that all conservatives are red neck, KKK, inbred dumb fucks who dislikes changes in their "American" way of living regardless of whether the change is good or not. *Note: I'm not talking about Obama type "change". I'm talking about change as in anything different from the traditional agricultural social and fiscal way of life.*
Just like conservatives who lump all liberals together as PETA supporting, irresponsible, sex addict, gay butt fuckers.
Both have a team mentality kinda like sports fans and often times people will exaggerate the evilness of the other side.
