Fred, I've mentioned before the 'sneakiness' of using labels for your
'opponents'. To call someone a 'liberal' do you mean they're "free from
prejudice or bigotry; tolerant" or something else? If someone call you a
conservative, do you take it as calling you 'something else'? Labelling
often saves us the trouble of thinking and that's the trouble; people who
are out to manipulate you will use that "us versus them" tactic to
prejudge, insinuate and make you angry and not think about the real issues

If you want the truth to stand clear before you, never be for or against.
The struggle between 'for and 'against' is the mind's worst disease.
