Question

August 20th, 2007at 06:13pm Posted by Eli

If a liberal agrees with conservatives on everything, are they really a liberal? Similarly, can a Democrat who agrees with Republicans on everything really be considered a Democrat? Hell, for that matter, can a “non-partisan” who agrees with conservatives on everything really be a non-partisan?

Sure, you can label yourself however you like, but that don’t make it true. Without changing my views at all, I could declare myself to be a conservative, or a Republican, or a non-partisan, and y’all could cite me and link to me every time you want to say, “Look! The conservatives/Republicans are so far off-base that even this conservative/Republican/totally-impartial-observer thinks they’re a bunch of incompetent lunatics!”

But it still wouldn’t be true.

(I would get more traffic, though)
