And you'd better back -- Republican like Mitt Romney woman next guest recently found out the hard way when she was viciously attacked for tweeting the following.
Can't get into get too political a home a 140 characters but for those were asking if I am voting Romney Ryan and as usual.
Liberals responded with their hate filled rhetoric and there's a few pretty nasty tweets that they sent out here's what they said.

Ouch another one -- so at Melissa Joan Hart is politically ignorant.
And finally this one red UA -- Since Sabrina.
And joining me now is actress solicit a lot of -- that there is nothing compared to what you really got.
And now an -- on the stuff I got was was pretty disgusting you know what what do you attribute this to I mean it's same thing happened Stacey dash when she came -- and she said you voting for Romney.
-- why can't you be conservative or vote for Republican and and work in the entertainment and.
You know I learned this pretty early on.
On Sabrina I was.
Twenty years old when we started the show and it was the first and I -- vote end I did I did my research and I asked around -- asked questions like.
IE you know looked up the issues and and the candidates and I decided -- -- was a vote for an locked in a work very proud because I grew up in the ninety's with it.
The Rock the Vote was the big thing you know and everything was Rock the Vote go out vote you gotta vote you gotta be heard.
And so I was so proud -- -- -- -- -- -- I was so proud myself walked onstage to start rehearsals and and like you know.
I can't -- -- for a nice adult.
And oh my gosh I learned a lesson that's a Rock the Vote one way rock -- -- the -- but only or yes so I just.
It it it just -- it schooled me in the fact that you just don't talk about politics and Hollywood and you know I'm most -- the don't think the way you do.
But I quickly found -- kind of behind the scenes that.
A lot of people do feel that way but -- them to vote Republican but they're afraid to say it but they're afraid to say that it's almost like a black list.
It is sort of like a black -- -- it's a little scary there's and I just -- up and there's a Wikipedia page it says who backed.
Romney and in the celebrated.
The Wikipedia page says which Hollywood stars and backed back and I'm so in other words little black and could be.
And he used you know it's funny I've had people.
That work in your industry to come up to me in the same group and I think -- can go to people don't stop.
But don't mention my name on the -- -- I'm like why how do you -- -- life and feel that way it's it's a little weird comment the united it's some.
It's hard to find that fellowship but when you do it's it's great and you know it's hard for things like that's like what's unbelievable -- -- in a country.
Where I'm -- be able to.
You know have this freedom choose whoever I want to vote for you know whatever religion I want and and I feel like there's.
There's these limitations -- it it's not.
Like east today.
You know one of the things that really stuck out as -- read through your and your tweets.
Or those that tweeted to you.
A lot of people brought up how can how can you say that as a woman -- you that delusional.
And so I got -- a lot I got placid as you know I must hate gay people and finally that you land if I'm voting for -- I don't says Republican.
I -- I who I'm voting for all I simply as you read there.
All I am all I said was.
I'm voting Romney Ryan that's all he's had -- Lisa I never said anything political I never even -- as a Republican but here's the narrative one person -- -- that so you don't think women should have health care equal rights equal pay.
That it -- at these days it's I don't get because we only have two parties you get put in a box you know and so.
If I voted for Ronnie it must mean that -- -- thing to me what it is is its priorities.
My priority right now as I just had a baby three eight weeks ago I actually little boys and get a 64 and hope that almost 2 months it -- o'clock who you know -- you know gracious moment I.
Excel that's beginning president that I sell goods many -- and a Twitter you know pictures you -- or.
Let's look at -- Look at a you know it is so I say you know cutting north Illinois took about a dozen -- that I three boys my clarity is my family it's their future and is my -- -- for this election.
I wanted to vote for their future and to me that's -- the debt is the number one problems me.
And it's it's not you know some of the social issues and what not we're not the top of -- -- I don't get.
This part you know the whole Sandra flock controversy Bill -- donates a million bucks to Obama.
Call -- -- on the C word any conservative ever said that about a democratic woman.
Be eviscerate it rightly -- in my opinion.
But it seems for many women came down birth control but not even birth control that people ought to PP you birth control gap that to me is like -- I don't get why the how people think that the government is gonna take care of every aspect of their life because we're gonna have.
It's funny that that I think that's fine that the Democrats will call the Republicans you know say that.
That you know -- If here not for if -- for error if you're pro life if you're for a baby you know they don't think and in terms of big -- -- of it in terms of women.
And I think the Republicans think with the other way -- -- thing about the beating up the woman so I think that it's you've got these two sides it look at it very extreme and there is there isn't a ground and I think we have different now that he seemed like you really don't care listen join the political world you don't -- like this -- in that impacted you affected you in a negative -- no I have not -- definitely has not because it what it did but it's a little scary hit at first when I was seeing these things I was literally up at 3 in the morning after the election.
Breastfeeding mind my little baby -- the tweets like apologizing to him that you know first -- but I was like I was I was just reading these -- and feeding him and just it was so hurtful -- and I started to get upset over and then I thought.
After a day or two went by I'm like I'm not gonna go on -- anymore and I delete delete my account just but the thing as.
I don't put out hate and I want to see hit on my Twitter feed -- like what I have to say don't follow me you know -- that's I like -- bleeding yet.
It meant it and everybody can't supplant them you know the thing that night I gained 20000 followers I may have lost 34000 but I can't maintain their fingers -- -- -- -- I've also took a look at your career very nice to meet you and and thank goodness you speak out and I think more people should regardless even.
Liberals think you know yeah they can come on this program they're always welcome.
