OP move to dc and you'll not have to worry. Except for the occasional midwestern patent lawyer and employees at conservative organizations, almost everyone here is liberal
Liberal if all good. I'm liberal too. But progressives can be dodgy. I feel like you have to walk on eggshells around progressives in the workplace.

Develop such a deeply understated layer of irony in your speech patterns that no one can ever tell if you're expressing a sincere belief in the first place.

No really though, uniform use of light irony has saved my butt so many times

Well, there are obviously those extremes. I don't think that's what people are generally talking about though because it's so obvious. In this environment, identifying as a conservative/republican can get some serious knee-jerk reactions even if you don't support Donald Trump. And there are enough intra-party disagreements among liberals/democrats that you could get into uncomfortable discussions there as well.
