I am just getting so tired of these labels, folks; left-right, liberal-conservative, Democrat-Republican - in general. I don't know, maybe George Washington (himself a complex man - slave-owner, Revolutionary War hero) was actually right when he said that political parties would have a ruinous effect on our nation. I mean, just look at the venal state of the political discourse that we, as a people, are enduring....THIS YEAR ALONE (those Internet smear-sites obviously representing the worst of it)!! It's like, how, pray-tell, can anybody, when they've swallowed it all so hook, line, and sinker, ever, EVER, shed such an outer-skin and breathe? They can't, I'm telling you. They just can't do it, period!
