I will just say..liberal, conservative, black, white, left-handed, right-handed...as soon as I associate my political leanings one way or the other, I have de facto limited my independant thinking to a group, and my power in that thinking is automatically transferred to a left/right side.
It is simply a means of divide and/or control power. And let us not forget..also money.
When I make a decision, I base it on a right or wrong premise. Not a conservative/liberal approach.."what would Rush do" bullshit like that. It is a simple matter of right vs wrong. Why break it down into left/right, capitalist, communist, vegan, monkey brain eater.....segregation? Do what you feel is right, shy from the wrong. Different applications are warranted for different situations. Dealing in life with such a polarized concept of attitude leads only to a faux self-righteousness...remember the old saying.."all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy". This concludes random thoughts for the night. Return to your unscheduled de-programming
