Your friends are the ones ruining my beautiful Commonwealth of Virginia.
The best thing you can do is to keep your principals and guns, be patient and kind, show them that you are a normal person (assuming that you are) and if they choose to dismiss you as a friend- it's their loss.
Northern Virginia and Eastern Maryland are victims of an over reaching government.
