I was raised in a home where Rush Limbaugh was on the radio every morning, and "tolerant" was a dirty word. After moving out and living on my own, I started broadening my perspective and making decisions for myself. I am still very politically active, but I no longer affiliate myself with any political group because I don't want to put myself in a box.
What puzzles me, though, is that most conservatives I meet [they call themselves conservative, I don't assume] automatically label me as "liberal" or "progressive" because of some of my view points. Why is it that if someone isn't conservative they are automatically liberal? And why must people label each other??
