Nowadays everyone seems to self-identify to some label, be it Republican, Democrat, Independent, Socialist, Nationalist, you get my drift.
I don't really care what you identify as, it's what you actually believe in that really matters. Today, we are on the precipice of a long, deep hole, into which if we fall we will not come back out.
We as Americans, no, humans are on the verge of losing something that we cannot recover, and that is our dignity and humanity towards one another. We cannot continue to treat each other the way we do. We kill in the name of your god, we kill because of the color of your skin, we kill because you may love another of your own gender, we kill because of anger because we feel threatened by your politics, we kill for money, we kill for fun. I don't know about you, but I have seen some dark shit posted online in the past few years.
Why do we do this? Why do we allow others to form our opinions for us? We do this every minute of every day.
I will say that I mostly identify as an independent thinking, progressive democratic.
