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 would find. if you asked people "what should a person on welfare be able to get...." and then list some things, or ask "should food be a necessity for those who are trying their best and aren't lazy" or "which of the following environmental situations do you most support for environmental purposes... water, air, saving natural parks, etc". and continue giving more concrete specific scenarios.

i would guess there would be a great number of people who say they are conservative when in reality, they agree on just as much or more things than the liberals.... and vise versa. they only disagree with each other in the abstract, where often the ideologies are so basically vague they are meaningless.

Hello, okey first , i would like to talk more about the group of people , who has deserves wellfare. I think that all people are equal ,but somenone's are more equal like others.Why ? Because they never think how stupid they lool to others and they are hard working. So this is my argument why someone deserves welfare.
