and Me Oh My, you're completely right about the blurry lines between Rep and Dem. Different message, but same results. I'm conflicted on where my allegiances lie at this point.
That just means you're thinking critically. If you don't have to constantly reassess your own beliefs and ideas, you've lost your mind to "group think". Left and Right are divisive and ignorant ways of thinking, used to pit people against one another instead of thinking for themselves.
The only differences between Republicans and Democrats are in social issues. In economics and foreign policy, they are both bought and sold to the same interests, and they both SCREW you. This ultimately also leads to an analysis of their social policies, while being different, as being fundamentally flawed.
The party system must break entirely, if people have any hope of actual change. Otherwise, get ready for another Bush, or another Obama, or another Bush, or another Clinton, or another Reagan, etc etc blah blah, same thing every time, just a different time period.
Good for you, though! Keep smashing that divisive paradigm! It's scary, but very hopeful!
