I will hide someone who is obnoxious or drop them completely (I've dropped 2 friends for that reason). The college I attended attracts mostly those whose political viewpoints oppose mine. Several of my college friends (and military ones) have posted statuses I disagree with. As long as I'm not repeatedly turned off, I ignore it. I might vent to someone else, but that's it. I generally don't try to start arguments or debates on Facebook, and I purposely left my political views out of my profile description.
