In politics common-sense gave way to “labels” they should be replaced by actual beliefs:

28 Dec

In the 2012 election, semantics are taking over for common sense. It is important to realize that there are no pure liberals, conservati­ves, or libertaria­ns, nor pure Republican­s or Democrats. Essentially no individual is completely on either the left, or right of the political spectrum.

Political labels are description of theoretical policies and can seldom be applied in a pragmatic manner. After some 130 years of the American democracy, it is time for politicians shed off labels and offers the electorate their actual beliefs.

Each one of these labels has within it elements of the others, perhaps in varying degrees, but never the less they are all somewhat hybrids. It may be time for candidates start to truly present to you their actual beliefs, not what they expect that the voting public desires.
