Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Time to unfriend your Republican friends.  Anyone who responds to a policy debate with a personal attack needs to grow up.  The problem, to date, is that there have been no consequences for those who mouth right wing or racist stupidities, and such stupidities will continue until those consequences mount.

The only person I unfriended on Facebook was someone I know fairly well who, at the height of the Iraq Stupidity, was making "jokes" that felt more like threats.

Now I ignore the personal insults (although I'm surprised why people feel the need to argue by insult and play debate as a blood sport to  hurt your feelings rather than destroy your arguments) and try to be measured and polite.  So far, that's worked in keeping a dialogue going.

I'm looking for places of agreement, if at all possible.
