You know the words..stupid, homophobic, racist, liberal, progressive, socialist. You can even guess which side they come from. Why are we labeling ourselves? It does a disservice to us all. The second I see these words thrown around, I disengage, pass over the comments, go on to something else. For the sake of a public conversation, keep the label to yourself and let your opinion soar.
