I am often asked “are you republican or democrat?” Usually, I stare back for a few moments before responding, “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
The whole distinction between democrats and republicans is a distraction. It’s possible that this distraction is facilitated and encouraged by those in power.
The only political discussion that matters is one that focuses on a specific issue in a specific situation where the relevant information is known to all. Speculation and generalizations poison too much of the current political commentary
I am neither a democrat or republican – nor am I an independent. I am a rational, reasonable, free-thinking individual that evaluates each decision based on a thought-out system of values and principles.
