Thus, ignore the normal Pro/Con designations. I shall also be...

most self identified political labels are meaningless

most self identified political labels are meaningless for most people, they are more a tool for psychological self identification than anything, more an indicator of the biases you've grown up with than a thought out label. i would bet if you did a study, you would find that there's a significant or even most people, who actually agree with each other more in actual substance than just their self proclaimed label. for example. if you tested this hypothesis. what i would suppose you woul...
