**not a dude but I'm glad you'r being polite about the disagreement. And you are right - I haven't seen or met them.
I disagree on the fact that is has bearing, to me it speaks to mindset.
You're more than welcome to disagree though.

I totally missed the 'homeboy' part and would drop his age to mid-20's now, wearing a t-shirt for something he hasn't thought thru his position on. I'm more accustomed to seeing Darwin fish decals (its the difference between someone doing something trendy and someone who's thought things thru for themselves and came to a decision). Anyone rockin a 'Darwin is my homeboy' obviously has no grounding in admittedly racist history of evolution of the theory of evolution.
As for mindset, all bets are off when you are dealing with someone wacked out on drugs. They really have no normal rational mind. A rational liberal and a rational conservative can in fact have a civil adult conversation with each other. They may disagree. But once you throw drugs in the mix you have all sorts of problems. At least the potheads are relatively calm. The methheads are trouble with a capital T.
All things considered, if TSHTF whether someone was a liberal , a conservative or antiChurch would not bother me as long as they brought a positive contribution to the table. A hard core druggie, and a hard core religious zealot would get shown the door. I don't want want anyone with clouded judgement around for security and safety reasons, and I don't want anyone dead set on causing internal strife around when there's enough external crap to deal with.
I do see your point tho - some folks do seem to go out of their way to put themselves in a position of danger needlessly.
